Anna Oppermann: Cotoneaster horizontalis - Save the date for The Process of Content, Roundtable Discussion

Composed of hundreds and often thousands of drawings, paintings, photographs, texts, slogans and objects, Oppermann’s distinctive art works lay bare the process of perception, awareness and the very practice of thinking itself.

Anna Oppermann's ensemble 'Cotoneaster horizontalis (Anticommunication design)' is now show in Cooper Gallery, exhibited alongside drawings, archival material and a documentary film from the collection of the Center for Art and Media (ZKM) in Karlsruhe, Germany, made by the experimental German film maker Michael Geißler which records Oppermann guiding her subject through the ensemble she produced in 1977 for documenta 6. 

SAVE THE DATE/// 29 November 2014, 2.00-4.30pm

Roundtable Discussion
The Process of Content: on a temporality in contemporary art

Speakers: Guy Brett (Curator and Critic, London), Lynda Morris (Curator and Art Historian, Norwich), Tobi Maier (Curator and Writer, São Paulo), Prof. Martin Warnke & Carmen Wedemeyer (Researchers, Leuphana University Lüneburg). Chaired by Dr. Lisa Otty (Lecturer, The University of Edinburgh).

Drawn from the proposition that the work of Anna Oppermann acts as a 'practice of thinking', the Roundtable Discussion is a stimulating gathering of thoughts that elaborates and amplifies the histories, politics and social reverberations of art practices in the 1970s and 80s, and the influence and impact they have on our thinking about art and culture today.
