Transfer Art

Transfer Art (or Transferkunst) is a form of artistic work that focuses on the artist as a person of competence and on his/hers qualification in questions on (visual) aesthetics. The specific kind of action is the association of different kind of topics or subsystems in society (transferring knowledge and perception between them (or rather generating these in associating them)). Transfer art finally leaves behind the traditional (20th century and before) media-oriented canonical forms of artistic work (e.g. the division in painting, sculpture, media etc.). Ruediger John (Austria) and Klaus Heid (Germany) belong to the leading contributors to this advancement in theory and praxis.
