When you do something that’s both performance and painting, your undertaking cannot be an entirely critical one. Because the way you involve yourself—after all, it is a bodily experience—will always throw into doubt the dimension of criticality in and of art itself. Walking that line, so to speak, has led me into a somewhat problematic terrain; but only in that problematic terrain is it even possible to deal with the historical baggage and trajectories that painting and performance share. — Jutta Koether*
On the occasion of her New York show Everything Will Change, join Koether for a musical reception at Reena Spaulings.
