Conference "Why Biennial? Why Associate?" held at the Haus der Kulturen der Welt, Berlin. Dates: 10th - 13th July, 2014.
Panel discussion: “Institutional Critique—How to be Self-Critical in Biennial Work”
How can biennials serve as instruments to open up cultural debates? Can they encourage plurality of diverse opinions and support the right to freedom of artistic expression? How do international/local as well as sources of funding influence the decisions about biennials? Is it the right time to be self-critical and incorporate institutional critique into the current debates?
