In 1986 a vandal slashed Barnett Newman’s painting ‘Who’s Afraid of Red, Yellow and Blue III’. A restorer was hired, but his methods and results were controversial. What comprises the identity of an artwork? Q&A with Dr Marjolijn Bol (Art History, UU).
This is the first lecture in the series 'Authenticity'. What makes something authentic? And why do we attach such importance to it? In this series we try to find answers by approaching the theme from three angles: art, nature and food. Tickets are available one month in advance on the website of Cinema 't Hoogt.
This series is organised in collaboration with Centre for the Humanities and Cinema 't Hoogt.
