The Salzburger Kunstverein is showing a group exhibit entitled “Participation. Politics of Community” in which participatory practices in international contemporary art are examined and on-site projects are realized. The term shall be subjected to critical analysis and its usefulness will be examined.
These days participation is considered a must in contemporary art, a promise that is often only kept on a basic level. What position is assigned to the co-producers? What kind of freedom do they really have? What kind of selection and steering mechanisms do artists incorporate in order to arrive at the desired result?
In addition to the exhibition of contemporary artists, we are presenting a historical outline of the topic in the form of sample pieces and an archive in the Cabinet.
Re-Activate: Art as Creative Collaboration
Curated by Catalin Gheorghe and Christian Nae
Exhibition in the Cabinet
Critical discussions concerning participation in contemporary art have lately reconsidered the strategic role of the audience in the collaborative and socio-engaged projects. On the occasion of the exhibition Participation. Politics of Community , “Vector Studio” mediation group is displaying in the Cabinet an archive containing a timeline (a selective genealogy of participatory art), a visual documentation with pictures, drawings and texts, a selection of books about participation and a communication desk.
The communication desk creates a protocol of communication between audience and mediators, proposing online debates and discussions on the books in the archive and the artistic projects exhibited in the Great Hall. A synthesis of this communication will be regularly presented in the Cabinet.
