Rita McBride


The artist Rita McBride was Director of the Düsseldorf Art Academy from 2013 to 2017.

During this time she gave 10 groundbreaking speeches connecting contemporary artistic production with art education, processing the classic lecture format with passion and humour.

Manifestos and performative elements found their way into the speeches, illuminating the artistic and educational aims of these public events. Speech! brings these lectures together for the first time.

This book is a guide for artistic activity, a critical reflection on the present, and an invitation to look at our society from new perspectives.
