*petit THINK TANK*

*_exhibiting as going public*

*_4 Dec 09 from: 15 / 17 pm [friday] _Oporto*


*petit CABANON <http://petitcabanon.org/>* proposes a two hour conversation
revolving around notions of public, exhibiting and publishing. The send-off
is the contribution of *Doreen Mende*, the editor of *Displayer 03
<http://www.displayer-hfg.de/>*[a magazine with contributors as Charles
Jencks, Walter Benjamin, Alfred Barr, Ines Katenhusen, Omer Fast, Hans
Hollein, Dominique Gonzalez- Foerster, Ines Weizman, Moritz Küng, Giorgio
Grassi and edited with the students of Program Exhibition Design and
Curatorial Practice / Hochschule für Gestaltung / ZKM Karlsruhe]. We invited
*Susana Caló*, a philosopher and editor of Detritos
Magazine,<http://www.revistadetritos.com/>to respond and to expand on
the interceptions of going public: the politics
of space and the public domain.  The conversation will proceed with *Gabriela
V. Pinheiro*, an artist whose work is devoted to notions of public and
exhibiting and hopefully engage in an intimate debate with the audience. A
filmed book realized by *Filipa César* - Displayer 03 - is to be screened as
part of the conversation.

 “*The requirement to exhibit the final product is something we can view in
the framework of the capitalist system, along the lines that an employer who
has made an investment now needs to see a result. These relationships are
reproduced in the collaboration among artists, curators, and directors who
have invested in a work in an institutional framework. The exhibiting
institution, being the last link in the chain of this market transaction,
needs a visible, tangible result: a product*.” (Milica Tomic, Politics of
Memory, *Displayer 03*).

While an academy is an environment which does not request a ‘finished’
product, the space of exhibition depends on something to be shown to a
public. The conversation will be based on the project Displayer, which is a
publication series of the program Exhibition Design and Curatorial Practice
at the University of Arts and Design / ZKM Karlsruhe. Displayer is a
magazine of original sound. The editorial team is the students of the
seminars of the University’s program.

The points of departure for the most recent issue, *Displayer 03 *(2009) are
the demands, the challenges, and the potentialities as well as the
impossibilities of exhibiting space itself. Space is the fabric in which
events occur, and events, in turn activate space culturally, socially,
politically and geographically. Hence, the exhibition of space is strongly
connected to performative acts in addition to questions about the
requirements of constructions in space.

In which way can a publication be understood as a space for exhibiting?
Under which demands as well as urgencies does a publication expand the
conditions of an academy? And for *Displayer 03*:
<http://www.displayer-hfg.de/>What are the means of recording space in order
to perform it at different times, in different places and different
institutional settings?
