The theme of the second lecture is the “de-materialisation” of art. Part 1 focuses on the artists of the 1960s and 70s who used industrial rather than “fine art” materials and Part 2 looks at when artists’ bodies became the medium. The convenors are Winnie Sze, independent curator, and Annemi Conradie, former lecturer at Michaelis School of Fine Art and currently a PhD in Art History candidate at Stellenbosch University.

Tuesday 19 August 17:30 to 18:30
Lecture 3 –1970s-1990s | New media

“New media” is explored in the third lecture. It is a broad umbrella term describing photo-based art, video, electronic installation and internet art, and we look at how artists have been using it from the late 1970s to today. This lecture will be given by Carine Zaayman, lecturer in new media and curatorship at Michaelis School of Fine Art.

Tuesday 2nd September 17:30 to 18:30
