Itinerary 2: Scenarios of Mediation
ITINERARY 2: SCENARIOS FOR MEDIATION
Crossovers between creative, curatorial and educational processes
To what extent does the effectiveness of an art proposal depend on its corresponding process of mediation? To what extent can cultural mediation also be considered an experimental, creative practice?
Curating and education, like all mechanisms for cultural management and mediation, nowadays have to be conceived as active elements for obtaining innovative environments. While from the perspective of modern formalism art tended to be considered an autonomous device, today the communicatory and transformative effectiveness of art is no longer believed be possible if it doesn´t also influence, albeit anticipating, mechanisms of mediation. One of the challenges of contemporary art is therefore to rethink questions such as curating and education from an experimental perspective, as processes that actually generate the processes of dialogue and hybridisation necessary for cultural innovation.
The second itinerary of the Study Programme at *DESK 2012-2013 (more information abouth the complete programme here) proposes 2 workshops, 9 seminar sessions with invited agents and 11 laboratory sessions, for the tutored production of projects. Aside from the possibility of participating in the whole itinerary, it is also possible to participate separately in each one of the workshops and programmed seminars and laboratory sessions.
The itinerary will therefore establish environment in which to consider the different proposals that are currently arising within curatorial, education and creative practices, and also the processes of exchange that arise between these areas and the implications they have on cultural policies, collaborative working practices, institutional critique and the production of new cultural hybrids.
