Lecture: Daniel McClean. Art’s Engagement with the Law: From Faking Suicide to Counting Deaths

In connection with Santiago Sierra’s exhibition at Magasin 3 Daniel McClean gives a lecture on how art may test the limits of social, moral and legal acceptance. Daniel McClean (curator and lawyer specialising in art law) will through current as well as examples from the 16th century art world speculate on what the co-existence of these models of artistic production/distribution within contemporary culture says about art, the law and the relationship between them. Works by Santiago Sierra will be a natural part of the lecture.
