Since the modern era, artists have not only been questioning individual images and specific motifs but also the medium of painting as a whole. Painting's conditions and sites of production have become a focus of discussion. Conceptual practices, technique, and the influence of media such as photography, film, and digital image processing have also entered the conversation. In our joint discussion we take a look at the development of a medium that has repeatedly been declared dead.
