'A Place for the Work and the Human Being' runs throughout 2019 and takes place in a range of venues, new and old, around Glasgow. The series explores the needs, expectations and possibilities of the space for art today and speakers include artists, architects, curators and others.

For the fourth event in the series we are delighted to present a conversation with Dorothea von Hantelmann.

Dorothea von Hantelmann is Professor of Art and Society at Bard College Berlin. Her main fields of research are contemporary art and theory as well as the history and theory of exhibitions. Among her publications are 'How to Do Things with Art' (JRP|Editions, 2010) and 'Notes on the Exhibition' (Hatje Cantz, 2012).

City of Glasgow College City Campus was designed by Reiach & Hall and Michael Laird Architects. The buildling opened in 2016 and was awarded the RIBA Award for Scotland 2017 and RIBA National Award 2017. It was shortlisted for the RIBA Stirling Prize 2017.

Refreshments will be served after the event.

The title 'A Place for the Work and the Human Being' is borrowed from the sub-title of a text by Swiss artist Rémy Zaugg (1943 – 2005), ‘The Art Museum of My Dreams’, written in 1986, translated into English in 2013 and now out of print.
