MIT World Series: The Max Wasserman Forum on Contemporary Art
The MIT List Visual Arts Center has gathered together several practicing artists and experts on performative practices to participate in the 2010 Wasserman Forum. This year’s forum will include a panel discussion with artists Tino Sehgal, Tania Bruguera, and the collective artist Claire Fontaine, moderated by writer and curator Jens Hoffmann, with respondents Dorothea von Hantelmann, Frazer Ward, and Joan Jonas. The forum will examine a variety of artistic practices in which the passage of time and the relationship to the viewer are significant. Unlike traditional art objects that are characterized by a physical permanence, many of the works created by the panel participants question and undermine, often in humorous ways, the common forms of how institutions present, collect, and display most art today.
