Major art event in the German capital Berlin Biennale 7 (25.04-01.07.2012) features a number of highly controversial elements in both its concept and selected curatorship. In 2012 THE SEASON FOR TREASON, the ideology of biennalization as well as its blind spots are addressed by various collectives and presented in the project room/gallery Organ Kritischer Kunst, Berlin, in the form of talks, performances and exhibition.
The 2012 THE SEASON FOR TREASON program in Organ Kritischer Kunst, which has featured 8 international collectives, is over. Nevertheless, elements of our activities and our research into the dubious Berlin Biennale 7 left/right synthesis on the fascist terms will be featured in POT, Kassel, Germany. For five days between 16th and 21 July, 2012 THE SEASON FOR TREASON team will be present in the POT residencies program which is putting documents 13 under scrutiny. Parallel to the showcase of some of the Berlin exhibition items we will discuss the outcomes of our Berlin research.
I have participated in creating the concept for “2012” show, curating the event, have exhibited work myself and held a presentation entitled “Art as Social Glue”. Full documentation of these activities will be featured under “Art as Social Glue” category in this blog shortly.
