In collaboration with Berlin Art Week and Akademie der Künste, the Nasher Sculpture Center presents a discussion in Berlin to follow the recent announcement of their annual international prize. Based in the thriving downtown arts district in Dallas, the institution stands as one of the most impressive and extensive collections of sculpture from over the last 125 years. The Nasher Prize, this year awarded inaugurally to Colombian artist Doris Salcedo, celebrates the work of living artists who demonstrate an expansion of the possibilities of sculptural practice, enriching the vision of what sculpture can be. With this award, the Nasher Sculpture Center remains at the forefront of institutions dedicated to the exhibition and study of modern and contemporary sculpture.
Curator and Art Director Kasper König, Berlin-based artists Bettina Pousttchi and Rachel de Joode and frieze co-editor Jörg Heiser will join the Nasher Prize Dialogues panel to discuss ‘The Work of Sculpture in the Age of Digital Production.’ The talk will explore new directions in contemporary sculpture, particularly those made possible by digital technology and photography. The panelists have been selected for their demonstration or observation of creative approaches to digital technology, either within sculpture itself or through other forms of new media with sculptural influence. Consistent with the idea of digital technology expanding opportunity, Nasher Sculpture Dialogues offers the invitation to live stream the talk on Facebook. Viewers are also encouraged to interact with and pose questions to the panelists via Twitter.
