Vom Streit zum Bild
Bildpolemik und andere Waffen der Künstler
How do visual artists argue with one another and how do they use their works as weapons? This question was the subject of the congress 'From argument to image – visual polemics and other artists' weapons, organised by the DFG project 'The argumentative strategies of visual artists in the modern era'. The essays encourage a debate on the artistic argument as a phenomenon and the creative potential it unleashes. The examples of such clashes include attacks on rivals, critics and patrons.
