Konceptuelle vidnesbyrd: Statement of Facts

 Typical readings of conceptual literature often reduce the works to being exclusively connected with institutional critique, a discussion of authorship, etc. In this article, I'll suggest that parts of the conceptual literature could be read as a kind of witness literature. Their forms of appeal, ambitions and means is comparable, and in fact one could argue that the conceptual witness literature that arises in this intersection can be seen as a sort of next generation witness literature - taking the ambitions and poetics of writers such as Primo Levi and Imre Kertész even further. As my example I'll discuss works of Vanessa Place.

The paper is in Danish.
