The current discussions around the past documenta, the funding cuts for culture across Europe and many shifting artistic approaches and programs, seem to reveal that existing assumptions can no longer be taken for granted.
In this evening length program, rather than try to approach these issues as concepts, Jeremiah Day invites the public to consider two artistic positions that emerge in close reflection of them as part of the working conditions of the field.
Lieven De Boeck, in the context of his current Doctoral research, is exploring the question of “when is art?” or how institutional frames condition the potential for culture. While proposing first of all a novel form for what research in the arts might be, Lieven further explores different modalities, considering art historical examples from the level of the body.
Anike Joyce Sadiq recent solo exhibition at Kuenstlerhaus Stuttgart broke up open the question of the public as stakeholder in cultural institutions, in theory and practice. Coming from questions of social and racial justice, Sadiq’s approach is less “institutional critique” than “institutional challenge,” pushing for different modes and standards of publicness.
