The condition of art has become very unclear since the 1970s. It is a result of the 1960’s art boom that brought about new art forms and media and reached out to other fields within the arts and science spectrum (literature, theater, dance, music, design, advertisement, youth culture, sociology psychology, ethnology etc.). The project “modernism” is over.
In the late 1970s, a post-modern way of thinking accessed the arts and made general, binding discourses and criteria within the art world obsolete. Johannes Meinhardt’s talk focuses on artists and art works that have preserved a reflective niveau instead of tending to spectacle and entertainment.
The series Visit is a open platform for the presentation and discussion of contemporary art. Künstlerhaus offers to everyone interested, the possibility to propose ideas or concepts for discussions, talks and screenings. The compilation for the series is made by a group of members that meets frequently.
