Mary Jane at Lunch Lecture

The Empty Conversation

documenta 12 Art education
Discussion between Mary Jane Jacob, Jacquelyn Braas, Ulrich Schötker

What emotions can an artwork engender in the individual viewer? This roundtable conversation will consider the conditions under which memorable, even profound or life-changing art experiences can arise. The speakers will also discuss the role of an empty, open space for contemplation, in which the viewer can experience an act of creation akin to the creative act of the artist.
