Serpentine South Gallery 26 Oct 2013 Free

This talk explores the concept of the living in Marisa Merz’s Untitled (Living Sculpture) (1966).


Merz’s early practice is often thought of as narrowly domestic. Teresa Kittler offers a different narrative, one that considers the artist’s close involvement with post-war experimental practices in Turin.

Teresa Kittler is a final year doctoral candidate in art history at University College London (UCL). Focusing on 1960s artistic practice in Italy, her thesis explores the way in which artists have engaged with a poetics of living space in this period. She currently works as part-time teaching fellow at UCL and editorial assistant for the Oxford Art Journal.
