TransformArt: A Series of Lectures on Contemporary Art

Invisible (In) Art

We are opening a new semester of the TransformArt course! This time, we will focus on overlooked personalities and themes in contemporary art. We will build upon our two exhibitions this year – the retrospective of the recently rediscovered photographer Lucie Moholy in Exposures and the solo show of internationally acclaimed Japanese artist Chiharu Shiota.

We will explore the role of women as artists in modern and contemporary art. We will also delve into the legal aspects of authorship of artistic works. This time, we have a walk planned to discover a previously unknown gem of functionalist architecture.

Below you will find the exact schedule and annotations of the lectures.

The course takes place every Monday from September 30 to December 2, 2024 (excluding Monday, October 28), always from 6 PM.
