Third, Fourth and Fifth Spaces – Curatorial Practices in New Public and Social (Digital) Spaces

Symposium on curatorial practices from 8-9 November 2013 in Zurich

Manifesta Journal, in collaboration with OnCurating, ZHdK and Migros Museum, is delighted to bring you “Third, fourth and fifth spaces: Curatorial practices in new public and social (digital) spaces”. Nataša Petrešin-Bachelez (MJ Chief Editor) will open the symposium and is joined by Virginie Bobin (MJ Associate Editor) and Sepake Angiama (Manifesta Head of Education) who are programmed to give presentations on Saturday.
The symposium will present and discuss current practices of reading, researching, publishing, and curating that have been enabled by the internet and its social technologies; while exploring new formats and advocating the open circulation of knowledge. An emphasis will be placed on contemporary artistic and curatorial practices as being temporary effects of processes of negotiation between subjects, contexts and their relations. How do the proposed new public and social spaces appropriate the territories designated online (and paper) formats of magazines for creative formats of display, criticism, participation, narration and positioning?
