One-day conference organized in cooperation between I: project space (Antonie Angerer and Anna-Viktoria Eschbach), Yellow Mountain Foundation and CAFA - Central Academy of Fine Arts

Following the demand for a radical examination of the social role of the museum, it is not confined to deconstruct the conditions and formats of the museum (such as canonized collection display or aesthetic viewing habits), it also needs a close look on the museum as a ‘space of action’ allowing for a shared, multi-voiced practice.

Interventions in the structures of art institutions always contain the potential of rendering the politics of these institutions visible, and thus generating new ways of speaking and thinking about the institutional organization through a curatorial practice. Changes that are needed to constitute a new field of action and enable us to engage with institutions as negotiable and trendsetting entities.

The conference “The politics of display” will examine different concepts of curatorial practice in relation to institutional systems. The discussion will take place with some of the most interesting curators in China to try to get a deeper understanding of different curatorial concepts and national characteristics.
