CURATING UNDER PRESSURE

Issue 37 / May 2017

eds. Elke auf dem Moore

 

The symposium Curating under Pressure held in November 2015 in Christchurch, New Zealand/Aotearoa, developed by Elke aus dem Moore and Leonhard Emmerling, asked for art strategies in times of crisis. The symposium focused on the ethics of curating in the biennial business was initiated by ifa and Goethe-Institut, realized in cooperation with Creative New Zealand and the University of Canterbury, and was supported by the Federal Foreign Office of Germany. The symposium outlined two possible states of crisis in a global perspective: the natural disaster—contributions in this publication can be found by Azhari Aiyub, Tim Veling, Chloe Geogeghan, Aaron Kreisler, and Syafiatudina—and states of political pressure—with contributions by Rona Kopeczky, Alisa Prudnikova, Bruce E. Philips, and Elke aus dem Moore.

Mischa Kuball // Solidarity Grid - Otautahi Christchurch 2013–2016

edited by Blair French

 

Mischa Kuball’s Solidarity Grid is a permanent public artwork and a gift to Christchurch, NZ in the wake of the destructive earthquakes of 2010 and 2011. Over 3 years 21 cities worldwide donated functioning lamp posts for the work, each gift building connections between the recovering city and international communities. The lamps – all very different in design and history – are installed along a pathway separating the inner city and parklands, this new location extending their symbolic and social significance. Featuring extensive photographic documentation and texts by 6 writers this book documents the project from its basis in a practical artistic response to an urban crisis, through to its realisation as a form of monument, a place for reflection, and a contribution to civic infrastructure.

 

with essays by Nic LowVanessa Joan MüllerHugh NicholsonBruce Phillips, Lara Strongman, Nathan Pohio, with a foreword by Deborah McCormick and Anthony Wright, as well as a conversation between Mischa Kuball and Blair French.
