The question ‘What is art?’ is kind of ever-present for us and we are very happy to finally get some qualified answers. Young people have formulated twenty-seven questions, all earnest, amusing, and profound: How did art begin? What does an artist do when he doesn’t like his own work? Is graffiti art? Afterwards, Hatje Cantz wrapped it up in a book called ‘Was ist Kunst? 27 Fragen, 27 Antworten’. The easy question-and-answer structure invites the reader to leaf through the book at whim. Significant concepts, historical developments, and specific knowledge about museums, works of art, and artists can be discovered in the process. With its expertise, the education department of the Fondation Beyeler guarantees a challenging level, while about fifteen experts deliver personal statements in reply to the question ‘What is art?’.
Today, you have the chance to win the book ‘Was ist Kunst?’. If you would like to win, just leave a comment in the box below. Everyone who participates will take part in the drawing for the book. The winner will be selected randomly, he/she will be announced here on Friday, November 23th. Good luck!
