Moderation: Dr. Holger Kube Ventura

16 September 2010, 8pm
Frankfurter Kunstverein / Steinernes Haus am Römerberg / Markt 44

Admission: free

A series of events of the Cluster of Excellence `The Formation of Normative Orders' in collaboration with the Frankfurter Kunstverein.

Plakat Frankfurter Stadtgespraech IIIIs art intrinsically political or must art reject politics for art's sake? What could constitute the political in art? What influence does art exert on the normative orders of a society, on public space and on processes of globalisation ? Globalisation is making borders permeable, leading to exchanges and movements in the domains of economics, politics, society and the arts. What stimuli does art lend to these cross-border processes, and what impacts do they in turn have on art? These questions will be the focus of the conversation between the Director of the Museum of World Cultures in Frankfurt am Main, Dr. Clémentine Deliss, and the philosopher Dr. Juliane Rebentisch.

The discussion partners:

Juliane Rebentisch teaches philosophy and conducts research at the Cluster of Excellence ‘The Formation of Normative Orders’. Among her primary areas of interest are issues in aesthetics and in political philosophy and ethics. Among her publications in the field of aesthetics is the monograph Ästhetik der Installation, which was published by Suhrkamp.

Clémentine Deliss, who was born in Britain as the daughter of a French mother and an Austrian father, had already made an international name for herself as a curator before she was appointed Director of the Museum of World Cultures in Frankfurt in early 2010. She holds a doctorate in ethnology and is also the founder of the international art journal Metronome.

The art historian Holger Kube Ventura, Director of the Frankfurter Kunstverein, has addressed the political and social impact of art in his dissertation and in a range of essays and interviews. Prior to coming to Frankfurt he was Programme and Project Coordinator for the German Federal Cultural Foundation in Halle.
