ART as/is SOCIAL Session #4

Socially engaged art institutions

'ART as/is SOCIAL: On engagement in contemporary cultural theory & practice' is a new discursive format with close readings, discussions and case studies around the topic of socially engaged artistic practices.

SESSION #4: 'Socially engaged art institutions' will concern itself with the unique potential of contemporary, hybrid institutional forms (like ZK/U) to engage in society and facilitate artistic intervention. We will be discussing a text by Lucie Kolb and Gabriel Flückiger from the 21st issue of the online journal ONCurating, which can also be found online:
