Die Conceptual Art und ihr Medienbegriff

Vortrag von Prof. Dr. Stefan Römer (Akademie der Bildenden Künste, München)
June 19th, 2008

In his second lecture of a multi-part series at Leuphana University, Stefan Römer examines the relationship of Conceptual Art to the traditional concept of media in art. What role did the division that gallery owner Seth Siegelaub made between primary and secondary information play? Was the concept of media actually expanded? Is conceptual art generally critical of the media? And: What is political about this concept of media?

As an accompanying program to the project “CONCEPTUAL PARADISE. A Social history of Conceptual Art on the Internet” Stefan Römer subjects main aspects of conceptual movements to a deconstructive reading: the concept of the image, the concept of media, and originality.
