Axel J. Wieder

Institutions and Crisis

The presentation explores the possibilities of institutional programs as spaces for critical practices and specific audiences. Experimental approaches in the last years tested new models of mediation and a reflective approach of exhibition formats and standards. Under the impression of the funding crisis, there seems to be a backlash which includes the pressure to respond to a populist turn, but also to internalize former progressive approaches in a way that rather enhances institutional power than allowing critique.
