As part of the collaboration between fig-2 and the Art Fund, fig-2 will be hosting 8 public seminars conceptualised by Art Fund Curator Fatos Ustek.
This eight part seminar series will explore the curatorial pursuit and eloquence of expression in curating today. Inspired by the structure of fig-2, changing the rules of display of ideas weekly, if not daily, the artist changes every week. The exhibition is not a singular presentation of works or a consistent message, but instead is composed of several constellations, each revealing how one object put next to another could provoke different readings of both.
Each seminar will concentrate on a particular theme with assigned reading announced in advance on the website, and will be led by Fatos Ustek.
The second of eight part seminar series with the title On Responsibility will concentrate on Roland Barthes' seminal text To the Seminar, investigating the contents and discontents of the current cultural production of art institutions and their modes of audience engagement.
