"What 'Self-Consciousness' Do We Need When Making Art?&q

When talking about or using the concept of “self-consciousness”, what is the core of the discussion? As this open-ended topic has no definitive answers, this talk focuses on the prevailing sense of “self-consciousness” and the problems it raises for art practice. At the same time, it reviews the multiple dimensions of artistic practice today.
