Center for Curatorial Studies presents

CCS Bard Speakers Series : Bettina Funcke

Encounters Between Writing, Art, Philosophy, and Book Making 

Monday, April 8, 2013

 A note from the editor:
The exposure to different knowledges and truths produces skepsis. Skepsis, the oscillating of knowledge, and the notion of artistic research: these are the fundamental ambiguities of dOCUMENTA (13), they lie at the core of its methodology, and they are also more generally characteristic of what is alive in artistic research and radical thought, which is often transdisciplinary and self-questioning. What texts might accompany an exhibition driven by an inquiry into artistic research and its politics?

A note from the writer:
What is the encounter of art and philosophy? Philosophy wants to become an art, while art desires philosophy, as with a drug. What kind of writing can document their mutual encounter? Why can these disciplines never become one?

A note from the publisher:
Leopard Press is about to publish its third book. After two editions of Seth Price’s How to Disappear in America, the next how-to, Carol Bove: 2010 Manuals, is a primer on how to install Bove’s artworks.

Bettina Funcke is an independent writer and teacher who has published widely in contemporary art journals and artist monographs. She is currently a member of the Masters Program Faculty of the Critical Theory and the Arts program at the School of Visual Arts. She recently edited 100 Notes – 100 Thoughts, the dOCUMENTA (13) publication series. Funcke has lectured on aesthetics, art theory, and art writing at Columbia University, Bard College, the ZKM, Karlsruhe, NYU, Hunter College, and Yale University. She is a co-founder of The Leopard Press and the Continuous Project group, and her book, Pop or Populus: Art between High and Low (Sternberg Press, 2009/ Walther König, 2007) was recently translated into English. She is currently working on an essay on dOCUMENTA (13)’s notebook series in Unpacking the Collection (Jumex, Mexico); a written response to Graham Harman’s search for the next avant-garde, to be published in Speculations, and an essay on Sarah Morris’ new film Rio.

About The Speakers Series: Each semester the Center for Curatorial Studies at Bard College hosts a regular program of lectures by the foremost artists, curators, art historians, and critics of our day, situating the school and museum's concerns within the larger context of contemporary art production and discourse. Lectures are open to students and faculty, as well as to the general public, and will also be documented through video and/or audio recordings, which will reside in the CCS Bard Library and Archives.
