Urgent! #01. Economy of Art Display

Lecture by Boris Groys

The author of The Communist Postscript, Sobre lo nuevo. Ensayo de una economía cultural (2005) and Bajo sospecha. Una fenomenología de los medios (2008), Boris Groys is one of the most lucid voices that has reached us from behind the former Iron Curtain. A philosopher, media theorist, art critic and curator, Groys finds in art a laboratory for researching into such crucial issues as participation and the polarisation of intellectual work. One more step for the art, market and merchandising constellation. In this lecture, Groys will discuss how the economy of an art whose creative act coincides with that of its exhibition actually works.
