Andrea Fraser talks about “institutional critique,” an approach to art making that emerged out of conceptual art in the late 1960s and has been associated with the work of Hans Haacke, Daniel Buren, Michael Asher, Marcel Broodthaers, Louise Lawler, Fred Wilson, Andrea Fraser, and others.
Fraser discusses the work of these artists as well as her own, and provides an overview of some of the theoretical, and practical issues raised by this kind of work and the continued need for it in today’s art world.
This talk is a part of the Interdisciplinary Seminar at the Cooper Union School of Art. The lectures and seminar are organized and led by Doug Ashford and Walid Raad.
This talk took place on November 27th, 2007.
