Collective book with essays by leading art historians and experts based on a series of conferences held at Witte de With.
This publication compiles a series of essays on contemporary art written by leading art historians and experts. The majority of the essays were first presented in lecture format at Witte de With, Center for Contemporary Art (Rotterdam, the Netherlands). Bringing together both historical and intuitive approaches, these essays reflect the wealth of the exchange that exists between theoretical writing and artistic thinking, sharing the fascination that each of these authors has with both the work of an artist and how this work functions in relation to larger contexts and broader ideas.
Edited by Juan A. Gaitán, Nicolaus Schafhausen, Monika Szewczyk.
