Thinking through Painting

Reflexivity and Agency beyond the Canvas

Painting has demonstrated remarkable perseverance in the expanding field of contemporary art and the surrounding ecology of media images.

Texts by Peter Geimer, Isabelle Graw, André Rottmann

It appears, however, to have dispelled its own once-uncontested material basis: no longer confined to being synonymous with a flat picture plane hung on the wall, today, painting instead tends to emphasize the apparatus of its appearance and the conduits of its circulation.
