This half-day symposium will bring together researchers, academics and curators to investigate the relationship between artistic creation and politics during the years of the Cold War. It will explore the role played by artists in the political discourse of the time, and the way their works reflected socio-political contexts.
This event is linked to the exhibition A.R. PENCK: I THINK IN PICTURES on view in Gallery 8 until 3rd November 2019 and will be followed by a tour of the exhibition by curator Dr Lena Fritsch.
