Questions for Verwoert essay

1) Does it make sense to make a single medium the subject of a text or an exhibition?

3) How did  Conceptual Art  irrevocably sever the connection between art and its medium?

4) What does Rosalind Krauss mean by “post-medium condition” and how does this effect an understanding of painting?

5) What does Verwoert mean by “Painting as situative strategic practice?”
