sintesi del comunicato stampa

What is the function of an art institution today? In a time when art is under pressure to be easily understood and entertaining, it is vital to call attention to how art institutions can go their own way and offer other possibilities for artists, the art scene, the local context and society in general. In this first of five seminars, the significance of site is addressed. The points of departure for discussion are dOCUMENTA's hyper-mediated landing, every five years, in the otherwise calm and collected city of Kassel and Eastside Project's collaborative investigations which are based in an industrial area of Birmingham. Marabou Park's director, Bettina Pehrsson is the local respondent. The seminar series What Does an Art Institution Do? is a collaboration between the art department of Konstfack and CuratorLab and will run from September 2011 through May 2012.
