OnCurating / Issue 21 / (New) Institution(alism)
During this Theory Tuesdays session, OnCurating / Issue 21 / (New) Institution(alism) will be presented and discussed.
This issue of OnCurating centers on New Institutionalism as a self-reflexive artistic-curatorial practice in institutions, whose conditions, structures and implications resonate in the contemporary organization of art.
Through the contributions assembled here, guest editors Lucie Kolb and Gabriel Flückiger focus on the critical approaches to thinking and speaking about the institutional organization of art that are at the root of New Institutionalism, and not least ask fundamental questions about the social potential of contemporary art institutions. The issue is an output resulting from the thematic focus ‘institutional studies’ at the Competence Center Art and Public Spheres at the Lucerne University of Applied Sciences and Arts, School of Art and Design.
