[Nettime-ro] Participation. Politics of Community

Exhibition in the Great Hall

Participation. Politics of Community

Opening: Wednesday, April 21, 2010, 7 p.m. 

The Salzburger Kunstverein is showing a group exhibit entitled “Participation. Politics of Community” in which participatory practices in international contemporary art are examined and on-site projects are realized. The term shall be subjected to critical analysis and its usefulness will be examined. 

These days participation is considered a must in contemporary art, a promise that is often only kept on a basic level. What position is assigned to the co-producers? What kind of freedom do they really have? What kind of selection and steering mechanisms do artists incorporate in order to arrive at the desired result?

In addition to the exhibition of contemporary artists, we are presenting a historical outline of the topic in the form of sample pieces and an archive in the Cabinet.
