The Bildhauerei department is taking the opportunity to invite artists and curators to present lectures via video conference. It is fortunate for us to have them speak, due to their usually busy schedules, and so we recommend making a small amount of online research and looking into the speakers work beforehand. The lectures and Q&A take place on Wednesdays evenings from 18hr-20hr.
