Artist – Subject – Politics

J Huber

Lecturer: Prof. Dr. Jörg Huber

Cultural Theory

One of the most unsettling challenge in the experience of transculturality is the task of self-awareness. As a consequence quite a number of fundamental questions and problems arise concerning the terms and phenomenon of the individual, subject, person, artist or author… in the context of global politics. The lecture will expose some aspects and questions as “the subject between west and east”; “the self and identity”; “the individual, power and politics”; “the artist as a migrant” etc.

Prof. Dr. Jörg Huber studied art history, literature, modern history and philosophy in Berne, Berlin, Paris; professor for critical theory and asthetics; head of the Institut of Critical Theory and professor at the Master of Arts in Fine Arts at the Zürich University of the Arts (till october 2013). Publications in the fields of critical theory, theory of art, aesthetics, theory of viusal culture.
