_Wesprzyj Wyspę


At General Public May 8, 2008, 7pm Schönhauser Allee 167c, 10435 Berlin, U2 Senefelder Platz.

On occasion of the presentation of The Mousetrap Book: On dealing with institutions in contemporary curatorial practice in Berlin, General Public presents on May 8, 2008, 7pm a discussion on potentialities of different institutional structures, in conjunction with a thematic screening. The event is a discursive update of the publication, which has been published in 2007 as the edited version of a workshop of WYSPA Institute of Art in Gdansk/Polen. www.wyspa.art.pl

Discussion with Nina Möntmann (Hamburg, KKH/Stockholm), Barbara Steiner (GfZK, Leipzig), Aneta Szylak (WYSPA, Gdansk) und Thomas Wullfen (Berlin). Authors of the publication discuss questions like What are the qualities of different institutional patterns? Which limits include definitions like anti- or post-institutional? Which kind of agility does institution allow? Which kind of visibility is produced? The aim of the panel is a controversial and productive discussion based on diverse perspectives toward ‘institution’: By its specific objectives, the venue – General Public – provides a reflective frame of critical cultural production and institution as collaborative networking. The point is, to scrutinize different institutional conceptions and expectations towards organised structures in order to avoid simple classifications (e.g. ‘institutional critique’) both from curatorial as well as institutional practice. The discussion is held in English.

Screening with works by Chris Evans, Judith Hopf/Deborah Schamoni, Hiwa K., Saskia Holmkvist, William Hunt, Edward Krasinski, Valerie Tevere, Carey Young. The discussion is followed by a thematic screening. The videos and films look microscopically at neuralgic points and production conditions within institutional settings. The selection of the works reports about a variety of possibilities to act and to reflect. The investigations consider expectations, role behaviour, transference processes, activity dynamics as well as space as material or as a place of function.
