Curatorial Statement

Restaging the Encounter

Restaging the Encounter attempts to capture the fleeting moment when the political become poetic. The works will mine historical moments to enable their reconsideration in the present and offer possibilities to re-write and re-perform history. What do the concepts of revolution and utopia mean today and how can art reflect upon the nature of the spectacular? By mining the spaces between fiction and reality and the possible and the contained, artists will re-imagine the city for just one night to consider the urban environment as a forum for social practice.
