On the mode of the critical

Within a relatively short span of time, the definition of critique has changed: from the criticism of something, to critical treatises on something, to criticality as something. The understanding of critique as experience and process bridges the gap between allegedly ignorant art recipients and knowledgeable art critics. Criticality lies in the experience of a shared and consciously taken risk, from which one can longer critically distance oneself.

Irit Rogoff has given a keynote lecture on Unfolding the critical at Tanzkongress Germany (Berlin, 23th of April 2006).
