Sample text

Lawrence Weiner, London, 1998) Hence – in stark opposition to Fried – Weiner takes the position that art should deal with the relations of humans with each other, especially since the establishment of Conceptual Art, whose content is consciously directed against the traditional status of a work of art as a unique object. In order to achieve this the agents as well as the cultural situation are objectified. ]. By objectifying the actor there is no false sympathy, no false empathy. ] The placement of the actor on the stage eliminates any problem of objectifi cation.

30 In his text »Towards a Theatrical Engagement« Lawrence Weiner defined the theatrical claim of the work as a concentration on cultural phenomena that are not necessarily related to the realm of art. A theatrical engagement for Weiner is one that can represent human relations in the Fine Arts. 30 For the time being let us posit that a transitory, media-oriented, event-like, and performative work of art eludes a conventional methodological grasp and its historic continua. However, it is precisely due to this aspect that these works of art mark a constitutive flaw of the methodological apparatus in dealing with artistic practices whose intention lies in the procedure rather than in the product.

Because an interesting thing was happening. A lot of people had taken a lot of trouble educating the public to participate – if I put this stuff out here, you were suppose [sic] to participate.
