Dan Graham (born 1942, lives in New York), one of today’s most influential conceptual artists, questioned the autonomy of the artwork early on and re-flected on the role of popular culture in his works. The artistic activities devel-oped by Graham since the mid nineteen-sixties range from newspaper arti-cles, pages of newspapers and newspaper announcements to photographs, performances, audiotape, film and video installations as well as television pro-grammes, hybrid sculptures and architecture. Graham additionally authored numerous articles dealing with cultural phenomena, wrote video essays, drafted an opera and developed the conception of a museum for an artist (Gordon Matta-Clark) who left no lasting works behind.
Gregor Stemmrich traces the development of Graham’s art and shows how Graham counteracts a culturally predominating use of media.
