Sven Lütticken: 'Concrete Abstractions: Notes on Form' by UQ Art Museum published on 2017-08-31T06:16:04Z Mayne Centre Lecture 2017 Sven Lütticken Art historian, critic, curator The notion of form seems to belong to the more problematic heirlooms of art history. Indispensable though it may be in more popular usage, it has been conceptually dethroned as the discipline has become more focused on the institutional field and the social history of art. Dr Sven Lütticken is an art historian, critic and curator based in the Netherlands. Lütticken teaches art history at the Vrije Universiteit, Amsterdam and theory at the Dutch Art Institute, Arnhem. Lütticken publishes regularly in journals and magazines such as 'New Left Review', 'Texte zur Kunst', 'e-flux journa'l, 'Grey Room' and 'Afterall', and contributes to catalogues and exhibitions as a writer or guest curator. He is the author of 'Secret Publicity: Essays on Contemporary Art' (2006), 'Idols of the Market: Modern Iconoclasm and the Fundamentalist Spectacle' (2009), 'History in Motion: Time in the Age of the Moving Image' (2013), and 'Cultural Revolution: Aesthetic Practice after Autonomy' (2017).
