Curatorial Talks, with Rein Wolfs (Kunsthalle Fridericianum, Kassel)
23 March 2012, 19.00
The New Public - work in progress
Asked to curate an exhibition for Museion in Bolzano, Wolfs developed a project entitled 'The New Public'. Approximately 12 artists will be invited to participate with works that elaborate on the contemporary promiscuity of public and private space, on the possibility of showing topics of public space in the white cube of the museum and on the existence of a new kind of public in terms of a new kind of audience. The exhibition will be opened in Museion on 14 September.
In his lecture, Wolfs will discuss the state of the preparations, the development of his project as well as the context of the exhibition in the framework of Museion's recent history. Furthermore, questions will be raised about the relationship between curating and mediation.
