Is «Crritic!» – as in Samuel Beckett’s Waiting for Godot – an obscenity in fine art today? What do we want to do to change that? What do we mean, in fact, when we call ourselves critics? Or do we ultimately want ‘Crritic!’ to become an offensive term?
«Crritic!» is a six-part series of events about art criticism in Switzerland. It brings together critics and readers from different regions and stimulates exchange about the state of things in the context of writing about art. And we want to promote the development of a community of the people who are active in the field, an energetic community that welcomes challenge.
«Crritic!» is initiated and lead by Aoife Rosenmeyer and Daniel Morgenthaler – both writers (amongst other things). Following a first workshop with invited critics from different regions of Switzerland in October 2014, this series of public events should enable us to continue the discussions that started then, thinking these ideas through in larger gatherings.
For the first «Crritic!» evening at Zurich’s Corner College critics from varied backgrounds will activate the discussion: Barbara Preisig and Judith Welter will present Brand-New-Life Magazin für Kunstkritik, recently founded together with Pablo Müller and Lucie Kolb; Marco De Mutiis speaks about his experience from Still Searching, the Fotomuseum Winterthur’s blog; while Sophie Yerly reports on her work as an independent blogger (We Find Wildness).
«Crritic!» has been developed in collaboration with Pro Helvetia – Swiss Arts Council and is supported by AICA - Association internationale des critiques d’art: Section suisse.
