Abstract

On the occasion of Marcel Broodthaers's first retrospective in New York at the Museum of Modern Art and forty years after his death in 1976, October presents a roundtable discussion on the Belgian artist's career and legacy. Exhibition curators Christophe Cherix and Manuel Borja-Villel join Benjamin H. D. Buchloh, Rachel Haidu, Rosalind Krauss, and Trevor Stark for a conversation on Broodthaers's work, his artistic development, and his reception. Topics include the indeterminacy between language and visuality; the status of film in his work; his meditations on the commodity, the art market, and the historical role of cultural institutions; his ambivalent relationship with Pop, Minimalism, and Conceptual Art; and national identity and decolonization.
