Socially engaged art institutions
'ART as/is SOCIAL: On engagement in contemporary cultural theory & practice' is a new discursive format with close readings, discussions and case studies around the topic of socially engaged artistic practices.
SESSION #4: 'Socially engaged art institutions' will concern itself with the unique potential of contemporary, hybrid institutional forms (like ZK/U) to engage in society and facilitate artistic intervention. We will be discussing a text by Lucie Kolb and Gabriel Flückiger from the 21st issue of the online journal ONCurating, which can also be found online: http://www.on-curating.org/issue-21.html#.WUAVGPnyi02
To sign up for this session and receive the reading materials, please send an e-mail to lm(at)zku-berlin.org.
ART as/is SOCIAL is a follow-up project to the discussion series THE NEW ART ACTIVISM that was hosted in October & November 2016 by ZK/U fellow Claudine Zia.
