What defines the contemporary art institution? Who are the authors in the construction of institutional space? Is it possible to built an institution while producing art? In times in which artists create buildings, architects contribute to art exhibitions, and curators act like artists, it seems to be possible to rethink the classical role models, and thus to renegotiate the relation between art production, the exhibition and its spatial envelope.
In the following I present four projects that I have been working on in the past years: firstly European Kunsthalle, secondly Exquisite Corpse which is a contribution to the ‘Curating Architecture’ program at Goldsmiths College in London, thirdly unitednationsplaza in Berlin, and lastly Cybermohalla Hub in Delhi. All these works can be understood as attempts that not only concentrate on the spatial presentation of art but that understand the institution as a medium in its own right.
