Friday Lecture Series
This year’s Friday lectures by Mark Cousins continue in Term 2. The lectures are concerned firstly with how works of art, drama and literature, as well as architecture, are presented in the world. There is a zone of transition between everyday life and the art object which marks the very difference between them. At the same time, this positioning of the art work is itself artful and its means are often drawn from other arts. This zone constitutes a culturally recognised form of presentation and recognition. The consequences for artistic theory are explored.
