What colour is God?
Let’s be honest; for art to be perceived in all its fullness requires us to ask questions. I question, I search. Following many years of educational-curatorial work, Julia Schäfer sketches out the path of her own ongoing process of questioning, of and with art and its audiences. Here, questions emerge as a moment of legitimation in the encounter with art. From questions come opportunities; what is the motor effect of questioning, she asks, and are artworks really questions in disguise? Schäfer’s approach to education as a curatorial practice shapes an inclusive concept of art whose meaning is to be found less in museums and more in life. Do we get more out of life when we act up, and can plants be good students? The text presents projects from the last 20 years, demonstrating that every project begins and ends with questioning.
