Another Relationality. Rethinking Art as Experience

in progress

With Alexander Alberro, Leo Bersani, Claire Bishop, Bernard Blistène, Jesús Carrillo, Helmut Draxler, Kaja Silverman, Beatrice Von Bismark and WHW

Relationality is a concept that permits us to controversially intervene in the debate about artistic institutions and their publics. We believe that it is necessary to propose other relationality, recovering John Dewey's reflection on "art as experience" (1934), as well as an ample experimental tradition of 20th century art, which has investigated meaningful methods to reinstate new forms of subjective appropriation of artistic processes beyond institutional over-determination.

From relationality's point of view, the Museum is a space for art in which new forms of social interaction are investigated without limiting its function to mere exhibition, but creating an experimental platform. In this way, Art can contribute significantly to the multiplication of public spheres through a process in which various subjects, forms and spaces participate.

This seminar is in line with previous MACBA projects as it constitutes a new attempt to propose other ways in which Art can exist in the public sphere.

This project has been carried out within the framework of Transform and with the support of the European Community.
