The Métamatic Research Initiative, in collaboration with the Faculty of Arts of VU University Amsterdam, presents a series of lectures by the Métamatic artists.
In 2009 we set out to investigate Jean Tinguely’s exploration of the relationship between the artist, the art work and the viewer as expressed in his Métamatic sculptures. Last winter we commissioned eight artists to undertake artistic research. The artists are now halfway through their projects and will speak in Amsterdam about their art and their commission during the autumn of 2011 and the spring of 2012. The academic context for the events is facilitated by the Faculty of Arts, VU University, Amsterdam.
Ranjit Bhatnagar is the first artist who will speak in these series.
Each lecture is free to the public and will be presented in English.
