Max Wasserman Forum 2010Parody, Politics and PerformativityModerator: Jens HoffmannSpeakers: ·       Tania Bruguera ·       Claire Fontaine ·       Tino Sehgal·       Joan Jonas ·       Dorothea von Hantelmann·       Frazer WardConcept: The 2010 Wasserman Forum will examine a variety of artistic practices in which the passage of time and the relationship to the viewer are significant. Unlike traditional art objects that are characterized by a physical permanence, many of the works created by the panel participants question and undermine, often in humorous ways, the common forms of how institutions present, collect, and display most art today.
