Critical Voices: Dialogues Between Stuttgart And Munich
16 May –22 December 2012
Experimenting with circulation of knowledge, image transfer, mobility, time management, contextuality, and the constitution of a given (local) audience, Critical Voices aims at creating a dynamic discursive environment in two neighboring German cities, Stuttgart and Munich. The project is a collaboration, yet reflects each location’s specific programming policy: At Künstlerhaus Stuttgart, Critical Voices complements a series of solo projects entitled ARTISTIC DIALOGUES and at PLATFORM3 it is part of this year’s engagement with the “spectator”.
Critical Voices will investigate how diverse critical practices approach an audience and how the presence of the spectator, the temporality of his/her gaze and potentiality of his/her participation shape artistic and curatorial content. Each keynote speaker will present his/her work in both cities, thus playing with the different local contexts in Stuttgart and Munich: The initial encounter with a given audience in the first city will set a point of reference for the guest speaker’s presentation in the second city.
