      1. Critic and writer von Hantelmann explores the relevance of contemporary art in today’s society by asking questions like: how does art become politically or socially significant? She focuses on the notion of ‘performativity’ to explore this question through an analysis of works by artists such as James Coleman, Daniel Buren, Jeff Koons, and Tino Sehgal.
