/ecm diskurs 54: On Practices of Care Within Curating


Thursday, April 15, 7pm (CET)
via zoom

Public Lecture by Nataša Petrešin-Bachelez, curator, editor and writer, Paris
Moderation Luisa Ziaja /ecm-director team, Vienna

Through the self-reflexive presentation of the Initiative of Practices and Visions of Radical Care that I co-founded with Elena Sorokina in spring 2020 and which is situated in Greater Paris, I will trace the questions of (in)compatibility of curatorial and institutional methods with the produced content. The talk will revolve around the concept of interdependence as the transforming notion for the curatorial practices to come.

/ecm diskurs 55: The Museum's Troubled Futurity


Saturday, April 17, 11.30am-1pm
via zoom

With Noit Banai, Joachim Baur, Beatrice Jaschke, Shuddhabrata Sengupta, Nora Sternfeld, Luisa Ziaja

Which horizons do visions of the future open and what possibilities do they close or even exclude? How might speculations about the future empower or disempower change to museums in the present? Or, as Raqs Media Collective in their beautiful contribution to the book, from which we also borrow the title for this online gathering, ask: "How Not to Accelerate in Reverse Gear"?

On the occasion of the recently published volume The Museum of the Future. 43 New Contributions to the Debate on the Future of the Museum (eds. schnittpunkt / Joachim Baur, Das Museum der Zukunft. 43 neue Beiträge zur Diskussion über die Zukunft des Museums, Bielefeld 2020) we would like to discuss individual perspectives on the sustainability of the museum and associated questions dealing with the contradictory present of economic constraints, social demands and elitist realities.

Introduction into the book and its topic by Beatrice Jaschke (/ecm and schnittpunkt, Vienna), Joachim Baur (Die Exponauten, Berlin), and Nora Sternfeld (/ecm and schnittpunkt, Vienna)
Discussion with Shuddhabrata Sengupta (Raqs Media Collective, New Delhi) and Noit Banai (NYU Shanghai) moderated by Luisa Ziaja (/ecm and schnittpunkt, Vienna)
