...Was ist Kunst?...

Resuming Fragmented Histories

The catalogue is published on the occasion of the exhibition ....Was ist Kunst?... Resuming Fragmented Histories at Künstlerhaus Halle für Kunst & Medien Graz 21.9.2013- 21.11.2013.

The project represented an attempt to facilitate the renegotiation of the question "What is art?" – as posed in the eponymous performance series by Raša Todosijević, with the artist having represented Serbia at the Venice Biennale 2011 – in a new exhibition context at Künstlerhaus, Halle für Kunst & Medien. It was not to approach this important existing work with a retrospective gaze, but rather to focus on this pertinent question that has long remained unanswered, despite being posed to the point of exhaustion.
