WHERE IS THE ART?
The Herbert Art Gallery and Museum
Saturday 27 November 2021
WHERE IS THE ART? is an ongoing conversation. It is about the process of staying with this and other questions to address the challenge they produce rather than rushing to come to a conclusion of any kind.
We intend to document contributions from all those present and encourage free exploration of the space and materials by all contributors, based on their communication preferences.
Discussions may include non-verbal communications and require active and sensitive talking and listening.
Outline of discussions
How the question Where is the Art? came about as part of DOCUMENTA 15 conversations in the Lumbung.
What is art without objects?
What is the role of institutions (cultural or others) within art, communities and collectives? Do we care?
“Only on condition of a radical widening of definition will it be possible for art and activities related to art to provide evidence that art is now the only evolutionary–revolutionary power?”
Joseph Beuys 1973 – what do you think? Has this happened? Is it still relevant?
Where is the art? will be documented by film, audio and note taking. As with previous Documenta 15 events a Harvest will be shared publicly with key findings.
