Workshop Andrea Fraser

Royal Academy of Art, The Hague (NL)

Only for PhDArts students

For almost thirty years, Andrea Fraser has engaged in an on-going investigation of what we want from art. Combining the site-specific and research-based practices that emerged with conceptualism together with feminist investigations of subjectivity and desire, she has used performance, video, and a range of other media to explore the motivations that drive artists, collectors, art dealers, corporate sponsors, museum trustees and museum visitors, from the pursuit of prestige to financial investment to sexual fantasy to self-realization.

She is Professor of New Genres at the University of California Los Angeles as well a visiting faculty at the Whitney Independent Study Program in New York.
