Presentation Archive of Mediation. Updating the Unarchivable
- HFBK Hamburg, Aula Wartenau
Since the mid1990s, forms of action in museums and exhibitions have been developed under the name "art mediation", which have produced numerous discourses, practices, methods and concepts. In Vienna, an Archive of Mediation is currently being created, which will create a virtual as well as physical place where positions, memories, experiences, and mediation projects since the late 1970s at the intersection of art, education, politics, and society will be gathered. The project focuses on Austrian mediation histories, and a translocal perspective is currently being developed.
At a presentation at the HFBK Hamburg in the Wartenau Auditorium, the initiators of Büro trafo.K and schnittpunkt. ausstellungstheorie & praxis will present the current state of mediation and curatorial research. A small project exhibition provides insights into archive materials and conversations that form the basis of the curated archive. A pop-critical retrospective of the 1990s concludes with a lecture performance by INGLAM - Inglourious Art Mediators.
The event is the first within the framework of art education at the HFBK in the winter semester 2023/24, with which the new master's program "Art Education" starts at the same time. The new master's program understands art education from art and sees artistic practice as the starting point for the development of forms and formats of art education.
