Lecture Cycle: Dissymmetrical Similarities

14 June – 31 August 2017


This summer, one of Garage’s most popular courses continues with a new season of lectures on star avant-garde and underground artists. Drawing connections between creators belonging to different eras, movements, and cultures, Irina Kulik offers a new perspective on the art of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries.

Compared to previous seasons, which mainly provided a detailed look at the Western avant-garde, Modernism, and the early Postwar period, in 2017 Irina Kulik pays considerably more attention to contemporary artists per se, many of whom are practitioners working today. Several lectures are dedicated to key figures of mid-twentieth century, a pivotal moment in the history of aesthetics and humanities. Those include such pioneers of performance and Actionism, including Peter Weibel and Valie Export. Meanwhile, Nick Cave, who works in interdisciplinary media, may attract special interest when brought in juxtaposition with artists proper.


Irina Kulik, PhD is an art critic, culture expert, lecturer at the Institute of Contemporary Art (ICA), and author of numerous publications on contemporary art, cinema, and music.
