All welcome

In the workshop we will look at the 'museum of modern art' as an institute of power that has been able to define the art discourse and the art canon, excluding a vast number of artists and practices while presenting itself as global. We will discuss the need for self-organised project spaces versus the need to be included in bigger institutions and their canon. Furthermore we will develop a number of performative and language-based interventions that will respond to questions around the decolonisation of institutions of display/places of exhibition. During the evening we will present the performances to the public.
