digital salon: Haacke and Richter Take New York
The Goethe-Institut New York welcomes Susan Tallman, art historian; Brinda Kumar, Assistant Curator at the Met Museum; Gary Carrion-Murayari, Kraus Family Curator at the New Museum; and Gregg Horowitz, Professor of Philosophy, for a discussion about Hans Haacke and Gerhard Richter in New York. Brinda Kumar, co-curator of Gerhard Richter: Painting After All at the Met Breuer, and Gary Carrion-Murayari, co-curator of Hans Haacke: All Connected at the New Museum, will present these landmark exhibitions and include multimedia examples of key artworks contained therein.
The significance of these artists and the centrality of art and memory to the construction of Germany’s postwar identity will be explored in light of their connections to the USA, particularly New York, and to the present.
This Event will also be streamed live on the Goethe-Institut New York's Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/goetheinstitut.nyc/
