Academy Lectures: Jan Verwoert
onsdag 16. oktober 2013 kl. 19:00 på Kunstakademiet i Oslo
Impressionists recognized the retina as a skin best exposed to outside light. The Nabis painters took the eyes from the fields back into the salon and watched people blend in with the wallpaper and bodies emerge from multicoloured multipatterned clothes, like mimic insects. In their paintings they vividly picture the altered social states in which the senses become relays for the body electric circulating in their surroundings. Does modernism have a specific medium? Yes: society’s living fluidum!
Lecture by Jan Verwoert.
Invited by Susanne Winterling.
The lecture will take place in KhiO’s Main Auditorium in Fossveien 24, Oslo.
