How to Explain Paintings to R.Mutt

How to Explain Paintings to R.Mutt The missed encounter between Duchamp and Beuys


A series of ten talks given by Dr. Tim Mathieson. Hosted by SocialSculptureForum in partnership with VCA. An investigation into the contours of an ethico-aesthetics (‘go with art into your selfmost straits and set yourself free…’)

What is the status of the ‘social’ underpinning the visual avant-garde project? Over a period of ten weeks, the Meridian of Paul Celan’s ‘Breath-turn’ will be used as a fulcrum to displace the Readymade interrogation: is it possible to make works that are not ‘of art’? into the founding assumption of social sculpture: everyone is an artist…

These talks are open to all and free of charge: held in the VCA Seminar Room, ground floor of The Hub (next to the cafeteria, accessed via Dodd Street off Southbank Boulevard)
