Many of the late-born children of modernism are creating an art caught in a web of historic references. This panel explores whether reverence, summoning the ghosts and uncharted potentials of unavowed histories, could be a critical counter-model.

Participants:
Paulina Olowska (artist)
Silke Otto-Knapp (artist)
Mathias Poledna (artist)

Chair: Jan Verwoert (art historian, critic and Contributing Editor frieze)
