Part 1: Practical Text competence. The art of writing about art

18/11 2016 11 am — 5 pm

With Moussa Kone, Vanessa Joan Müller & Erwin Uhrmann

Is writing about art an art form? How do texts work? Who determines the rules and codes? Where is room for criticism or theory? Why should one know his/her readers?

In the first part of the workshop on November 18, various approaches for writing about contemporary art are presented. In the second part of the workshop two weeks later on December 2, the texts produced by the participants will be discussed and the practice for textual criticism will be improved.

The aim of the workshop is to gain experience in writing about art and to get to know the relevance of different text types in their effects.
