Art + Argument at Claudia Groeflin Galerie


(When it comes to art,)

we are still painting on the walls of caves

9th December 2010, 19h30

Claudia Groeflin Galerie

Dienerstrasse 12

8004 Zurich

Four cultural experts in two opposing teams debate art and painting today. Teams must oppose or defend the motion, and each team member has five minutes to argue their case uninterrupted. After the speakers challenge each other, the audience may in turn question the speakers. The event ends with a vote for the more persuasive team.

This is a forum for discussing culture where the unspeakable may be said. Each speaker must play his or her assigned role, regardless of whether they agree or not. Speakers benefit from temporary immunity: what they say during the debate is not necessarily their opinion and they cannot be held to their word afterwards.

Art + Argument is an itinerant event bringing together exciting minds from the Swiss art scene and beyond. To know more, write to aoiferosenmeyer(at)
