Neue Kunstkritik (New Art Criticism) documents a symposium held at the Frankfurter Kunstverein in September 1999. The title postulates a change of perspective in writing about art, which reflects the altered role of art and its critics. The various participants discuss the status of the critic which, for a long time already, has not been stable. The borders between various professional fields have become fluid, and artists, curators, and dealers have long become critics of their own and others’ artistic products and processes.
