A Quarantine Diary. Art and Introspection in Times of Affliction

In English language

In his lecture, Berlin-based curator and art historian Mark Gisbourne takes recent events and the time of quarantine as a starting point to then reflect on the effect of the imposed period of isolation for artists and writers. He suggests that for some it has facilitated an intensification of studio-atelier life, stripped of material sites of exhibition and face-to-face cultural intercourse. Further, Mark Gisbourne looks into the question, how art practices have changed in turn of their (virtual) mediation to the world and art market.

This lecture took place through Zoom on 8 July 2020 in the framework of the Schloss Wiepersdorf Virtual Residency program.
