THE PUBLIC SCHOOL
Scheduled Course: GLOBALIZING ART
Saturday, Feb. 26; 1:00 pm
This course is free and open to the public. Please RSVP here
Invalidenstrasse 115 (click here for map)

COURSE DESCRIPTION:
How is the system that constitutes “contemporary art” – the relations between artists, viewers, institutions, biennales, art fairs, gallerists, critics, theorists – independent from localized cultural, social, political and economical circumstances? Is there a global art, one contemporary art, now? The answer is obviously, no, but we want to find out what happens in sites that are not part of the dominant nodes of the contemporary art world.

Other than art metropolis like Berlin or New York, where networks are connecting higher education, museums, project spaces, galleries through collaborations and various tools of communication, what takes place where there is no institutional framework or history of contemporary art practices? Additionally, how do artists operate in places that have social, political and economic turmoil and lack of infrastructure for the production, circulation and discussion of cultural products? Additionally, how does the global art market parasite off of smaller, localized production as a source of inspiration and products to market to a larger audience?
