Tuesday, April 9, 2013, at 7 p.m.
Škuc Gallery, Stari trg 21, Ljubljana

How to Think of Encounter as an Art Practice?
In the last twenty years many different theories have been developed that tried to come to terms with art practices in which the notion of encounter holds a central position. Artists, curators, and theoreticians, all have contributed with different concepts to the understanding of what is actually at stake in the art practices of encounter: collaboration, participation, relation, dialogue, friendship, community.

Through creating a dialogue between philosophy of ethics and contemporary art, Eric Hagoort will critically examine the notion of reciprocity which has became a dominant concept in discourses on art practices of encounter.

The lecture is part of the WORLD OF ART - School for curators and critics of contemporary art  (Season 14, 2nd Year) and is organised by the SCCA-Ljubljana, Centre for Contemporary Arts in cooperation with the Igor Zabel Association for Culture and Theory.
