Publisher's Description
The Frankfurt am Main Städelschule, and its gallery Portikus, form a leading international center for experimental contemporary art. The Städelschule was founded in 1817 by Johann Friedrich Städel for the purpose of introducing students to his prodigous art collection. This publication is authored by contemporary Städelschule professors and visiting lecturers, including Pamela Lee, Niklas Maak, Jan Verwoert and Okwui Enwezor, who discuss what teaching art means in the context of a contemporary academy, and at what point the art market should be introduced in a student’s education. It serves as an example of the kind of discourse available to Städelschule students, as there is always in residence an impressive international cast of artworld practitioners. This volume is not only functional, however; it also includes a series of new photographs, produced especially for this project, by Wolfgang Tillmans.
