in Curating, Zurich University of the Arts (ZHdK)
Exhibition and mediation project on art and activism
7–28 March 2020, OnCurating Space, Zürich
The exhibition assembles the politically engaged practices of artists and practices of activists, whose work is directly concerned with taking up political positions and engaging in interventions, ground work and various forms of activism. The exhibition aims to become a contact zone where different publics are invited to actively negotiate what has to be done, and in what way.
The project will take place at the OnCurating Space and elsewhere in March 2020, and will include an extensive event programme with various encounters, series of talks, lectures and discussions as way of examining these intersectionalities and sharing an expanded public space.
