Thomas Hirschhorn & Santiago Sierra | e-flux | Social Art Practices | Scoop.it
ASAKUSA is delighted to announce the exhibition Radical Democracy with artists Thomas Hirschhorn and Santiago Sierra, whose art practices engage with selected social groups, often facing ethical questions. The exhibited works articulate divisive fissures of political and economic disparities existing beyond sanctioned consensus, and provoke the agonistic practice of valuing and sustaining the dissent—democratic dialectics advocated by art critic Claire Bishop.

The Keeper opens | e-flux

The Keeper opens | e-flux | Social Art Practices | Scoop.it
This summer the New Museum presents The Keeper, a major exhibition dedicated to the act of preserving and collecting objects, artworks, and images. A reflection on the impulse to save both the most precious and the apparently valueless, the exhibition brings together a variety of imaginary museums, personal collections, and unusual assemblages, revealing the devotion with which artists, collectors, scholars, and hoarders have created sanctuaries for endangered images and artifacts. In surveying varied techniques of display, the exhibition also reflects on the function and responsibility of museums within multiple economies of desire. The Keeper opens on July 20, 2016.
The centerpiece of this exhibition is Partners (The Teddy Bear Project) (2002), a vast display conceived by Ydessa Hendeles.

Michael Gane's curator insight, April 19, 4:53 AM

Its terrible what we are doing to this beautiful world, everything is packaged to death, I recently saw three lads throw coke can's into the local canal, when I told them about their actions, they became abusive! I am a professional photographer, landscapes is one of my favourite types of photography, it worries me about the future for our children and the beauty around us. www.thefxworks.co.uk
