The Event as a Privileged Medium in the Contemporary Art World

The summer issue of Maska journal brings contributions to the symposium The Event as a Privileged Medium in the Contemporary Art World held at the Museum of Modern Art in Ljubljana in November 2011, as part of the 29th Biennial of Graphic Arts. The guest editor Beti Žerovc focused on various phenomena of art event in order to investigate the nature of this currently very popular medium in the art field. Due to the fact that in its 'eventification' trend the art field is in accord with many other fields, the theoretical contributions in the new issue of Maska are explicitly interdisciplinary and cover a wide variety of subjects.
