One Year Lecture by artist Jonathan Monk
Jonathan Monk (*1969, Leicester, UK) became known through his appropriation and restructuring of works of Minimal and Conceptual Art, or also Postmodernism. His artistic work – now an integral part of the international scene – has been characterized since the beginning by an analytical acumen that is generally broken by a humorous tone. In his wall works, drawings, sculptures, photographs, and films, he explores the concept of the original as well as the cult of the personality that dominates the art world, or aspects of homage and reference. Monk’s works are always associated with the objective of paying respectful tribute to the person quoted, while demystifying their practices in the same way. Time and time again, he shows in the gaps opened up by his rewritings, transformations and shifts that the personal is also a motor of artistic production.
In the lecture One Year, the British artist will speak about his work with a special focus given to works produced over the last twelve months.
The lecture will take place in English. Please note that the event will be filmed.
Admission €4 / concessions €2. Free for members.
