Activation of the reading corner – WHOSE IS THE EXHIBITION?
Members of the portal DeMaterialization of Art in collaboration with the audience and invited guests will start a dialogue on the topic: “Whose is this exhibition?” This dialogue should question representational character of art biennials, art production system and the art-historical heritage that supports this kind of art production and representation of art.
The dialogue aims to clear the field for thinking of different modes of production in art, inclusivity of the art in relation to the productive work and ways in which they manifests in dominant modes of cultural (re)production today.
DeMaterialization of Art is a place for critique, analysis and thinking of contemporary art and theory. The name of the portal suggests activity that is dematerialized in way that it is devoid of any interest and emancipator in relation to the society in its approach to the subject of art, but material as it is inseparable from material socio-economic processes and political shifts. Portal supports those tendencies that locally question neoliberal discourse in culture and art.
