For the first time, this June, all 29 CreativeMornings chapters will be hosting their events under one common, unified theme: The Intersection of Arts + Technology, presented in partnership with the Rhode Island School of Design (RISD).
Boneless Art? (About Viruses in Veritas)
In her Creative Morning lecture Else Gabriel will talk about the difficulty of operating within one or more systems of relations, meanings, and values while still being able to see right through their banality at the same time. Using various examples, she will discuss how her personal biography blends with artistic positioning, teaching and administration, and with the construction of the Aether Museum (as the basis for the Kunsthalle am Hamburger Bahnhof) and with the definition of performance as an art form of embarrassment. Else Gabriel boldly posits that the omipresence of media has disastrous consequences on our basic understanding of art.
