Politics of Installation. Lecture.

sintesi del comunicato stampa

Lecture. In 'Politics of Installation', Boris Groys considers the multilayered nature of the artist's sovereign will and the challenge posed to it by the fundamental act of exhibiting work to the public. Here, within the modernist notion of absolute artistic sovereignty, he identifies a short-circuit in the Western conception of freedom. This is simply because, in exhibiting work to the public (in the name of the public), the artist effectively justifies the place of his or her work in public discourse. The artwork's sovereignty is, in a sense, limited by the same process that allows it to exist as such. In order to recover this lost agency, Groys finds in installation practice a public space in which the artist's sovereign will can be reclaimed.
