Conventions in Contemporary Art

Witte de With Lectures 2001

This publication results from the highly entertaining and much talked about series of debates organized by Witte de With in 2001. Without evoking formal theory, it explores and questions thinking routines and fashions that dominate the current art world.

With presentations and debates on issues including the curator’s new profile (Catherine David and Iwona Blazwick), theory and art (Jeroen Boomgaard and Koen Brams), the relationship between design and art (Anthony Dunne and Fiona Raby), art in public space (Bart Lootsma and Camiel van Winkel) and the position of non-western art in the western world (Janneke Wesseling and Kitty Zijlmans), the publication provides a brilliant insight into the art world today. In addition, it offers thinking space to artists, curators, critics and others interested in art and associated fields.
