Workshop by Spaces of Reflection team
The Spaces of Reflection project aims to spark discourse on art mediation. It explores audience perception and possibilities for public participation in large-scale contemporary art exhibitions.
In 2017, a Berlin based group of fine arts, visual communication and art history students –with diverse professional backgrounds i.e. in curating and art education– came together with Athens based artists and anthropologists in order to examine the documenta 14 and questions evoked by the exhibition.
Altogether they developed different experimental approaches and mediation tools based on their own professional experience, which they tested in a one week "laboratory" at the 10th Berlin Biennale. This open laboratory focused on an experimental, open and unbiased character of art mediation, as well as on different approaches to explore the textual and sensorial aspects of the shown artworks.
What could be the possible formats–digital as well as analog–for a democratic and poly-perspective art mediation?
This time, the Spaces of Reflection project will set up a room for reflection and discussion on the 6th Athens Biennale ANTI.
Participants: Magdalena Beger van Buiten, Vivien Emmanouilidou, Sofia Grigoriadou, Simon Johnson, Alexia Manzano, Mattin, Dana Papachristou, Georgios Samantas, Ioannis Sarris, Silke Wittig.
