Exhibiting: From the Event to the Document and its Remediation
MetadataShow full item record
- Frank, Rike 
Unlike many art works, theater plays, or films, the exhibition is hardly ever re-installed, re-shown or repeated. It is a time based, mostly singular event. And as such it relies on the live experience as much as on documentation and forms of remediation. At the same time the majority of artworks and exhibitions are nowadays (a tendency starting with the invention of photography) first encountered as “reproductions”, as document, online or in catalogues and magazines. Furthermore artists as well as curators recently started to refer to, to re-stage and re-construct not only moments of art history but also exhibition histories. Taking a series of exhibitions as a starting point the research project will reflect upon their relation to documentation and the role of documentation for their afterlife.
