Waiting for the last meeting of 2011: Expanded Exhibitions: catalogues, books, magazines, websites..

21 December 2011, 6pm

The year of 2011, which is about to arrive to its end, was very intense for our program of The most beautiful Kunsthalle in the world. In fact, we held eleven encounters throughout the year that gathered some of the most important experts of thecontemporary art system, who gave their contribute for such important issues as the relation between commissioners and exhibitions (Producing for Exhibiting); the transdisciplinary relations within the contemporary art realm (Not only art); the importance of the displays (Displays), and a workday of discussion around the figure of the curator (Curating the most beautiful Kunsthalle in the world), amongst many others.

Last but not least, we will close the year with Expanded exhibitions, an encounter that will focus on the importance of publications, catalogues, books, magazines, websites and other platforms that cover the wide and diverse range of activities related to the contemporary art practices.
We will therefore inquiry upon the current role and function of these tools for creativity, thought, information and communication, trying to understand their function, role, and to discuss their current developments.

Moreover, we will critically analyze the importance of these media, both printed and in their online form, and try to understand how may they produce difference and be relevant in a period of overwhelming information sharing.  It is also fundamental to raise aspects related with the current intertwinement and imperceptible separation between criticism and information.

For such discussion we have invited three of the upmost experts in the area: the writer Maria Fusco, Director of Art Writing at Goldsmiths College and founder/editor of the journal of experimental artwriting The Happy Hypocrite; David Velasco, online editor of Art Forum; and the artist Julieta Aranda, co-founder of e-flux international information network.

    Da non dimenticare, in relazione con la riflessione che avverrà il 21 dicembre in Fondazione, la registrazione postata il 14 novembre dell’intervento di Chus Martinez tenuto durante l’edizione 2011 di Art Basel.

    Presentando il progetto editoriale “100 Notes-100 Thoughts” pensato per Documenta 2012, Chus Martinez si interroga sulla questione relativa alla produzione scritta relazionata ad un evento artistico sotto diversi punti di vista.
    Partendo dal presupposto che ognuno di noi registra informazioni scritte provenienti da diversi stimoli e riflessioni, come le proprie annotazione vengono successivamente recepite e riutilizzate per un progetto futuro? In che rapporto sta l’idea scaturita ed appuntata con la produzione finale?
    Se risulta impossibile, nonché limitante per tutte le altre variabili della visione critica, pensare di comprendere il pensiero di una manifestazione come Documenta in un volume totalizzante, meglio allora tentare la strada di un pensiero significante per ogni giorno dell’evento…
