what looks good today may not look good tomorrow: The Legacy of Michel Majerus
Symposium | 09.11.2022 |10h00–17h00 | Mudam Auditorium
With Sarah Johanna Theurer, Motoko Ishibashi, Fabian Schöneich, Ingrid Luquet-Gad, Cory Arcangel et Karen Archey

Through a series of talks and lecture-performances followed by a panel discussion, the symposium investigates the influence of Michel Majerus’s work on the practice of the ‘digital-native’ generation of artists, curators and researchers. International speakers working in and researching the field of visual arts will address the relevance of Majerus’s reflections today, while discussing different aspects of his legacy.

This symposium is the first chapter of a programme dedicated to the work of Michel Majerus and will be followed in Spring 2023 by an exhibition at Mudam and a publication gathering the contributions to the symposium.
