Eva Grubinger and Jörg Heiser
This reader – based on a symposium at the Department of Sculpture –Transmedial Space, University of Art and Design, Linz – poses profound questions about contemporary sculpture. With contributions by an international roster of artists, critics and curators, the texts look at expansions of the notion of sculpture – from Auguste Rodin to Rosalind Krauss and beyond – leading the viewer to think that the discipline has become defined by its near arbitrary malleability, since practically anything can be construed as sculpture. Yet interest in the history of sculpture seems to be experiencing a revival, including traditional techniques and production methods, which often appear appealing, even radical, in the age of the Internet and social media. Contributions by Jennifer Allen, Eva Grubinger, Jörg Heiser, Nikolaus Hirsch, Aleksandra Mir, Vivian Sky Rehberg, Jan Verwoert and more.
