On the occasion of the exhibition Breaking the News, the workshop deals with curatorial and artistic formats that create space for the discussion of social and political topics. Two questions will be extensively developed under the auspices of HOW DO YOU KNOW I AM REAL? 1. From which forms of participation do commentary formats originate and what kind of function therein does the observer take on—do they correspond or consume? 2. How are these approaches reflected not only in individual curatorial and artistic practices, but also in the every day labor of cultural works in institutional contexts? During this one-day workshop we will explore the discussion of current political themes as elements of a personal practice and to what extent institutional infrastructures (deadlines, budgets, hierarchal interests, or self-organization) could accelerate, delay, or influence commentary on a particular situation.
