The symposium, which accompanies the exhibition Artist Complex. Photographic Portraits from Baselitz to Warhol. Platen Collection, analyzes photographic portraits of artists in the twentieth century. Under the umbrella term of an “artist complex” we hope to develop new theoretical approaches to portraits of artists. The psychological term of the “complex” is understood as a central driving force, which determines our thoughts and actions, and which, so we argue, materializes in the moment of the photographic exposure. In this sense, the “artist complex” replicates and re-stages historically and culturally constructed ideas of an “artist”.
