The MAK Center hosted a free form, ten-session seminar with art historian Thierry de Duve on the passage from the Fine Arts system to the contemporary art world, which de Duve calls the ‘’Art-in-General system.” Each lecture focused on a particular episode in this passage and its theoretical interpretation, ranging from the 19th century French Salon to the birth and death of ‘non-art’, or from theories of the avant-garde to opposing readings of minimal art.
