    The Greatest Art—Play and Childlike Attitudes in Contemporary Art

    18:00Lecture
    Schwartzsche Villa, Steglitz–Zehlendorf

    with Dr Larissa Kikol, art historian and author. Playfulness and childlike aesthetics as phenomena in contemporaray art are still underestimated. The concept of childhood represents an adult utopia and is regarded as a status symbol—contemporary art turns out to be the ideal place for staging an optimized, elevated childhood.
