Politics of Display 展示的政治

conference on the future of curating in China

Date: March 10, 2016
Location: 中央美术学院美术馆 CAFAM

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.

根据对重新审视博物馆的社会角色的强烈需求,不仅仅只是解构博物馆的形式和环境(例如经典收藏的展示或者审美观的培养),也是近距离观察博物馆作为一个具有共享和聆听不同声音功能的“活动空间”的需要。
对艺术机构结构的介入总是包含了对这些机构潜在的解读,也因此通过策划展览带来新的思考和表述的途径。我们需要一个改变,建立一个充满活力和机会使我们处理的机构,这种机构是可协商的并创立新风的独立实体。

“展示的政治”会议旨在聚焦事态不断变化的当今中国,不同制度体系内针对策展实践进行概念上的研究讨论。讨论将在当今中国最活跃有趣的策展人中间展开通过讨论尝试对不同的策展理念和民族特点有更深的理解。
