Akademie der bildenden Künste Wien, Schillerplatz 3, Raum M 13 (Mezzanin), 1010 Wien

Forschungsprojekt und Vortragsreihe der Akademie der bildenden Künste Wien

Konzept: Chantal Mouffe

Die Akademie der bildenden Künste Wien setzt die im letzten Jahr von Chantal Mouffe initiierte Vortrags- und Seminarreihe zu den immer komplexeren wie kritischen Bedeutungen, die mit dem Begriff von Öffentlichkeit oder dem weiter gefassten Begriff von »public« verbunden sind, im Studienjahr 05/06 fort. Implizit steht damit ein breites Spektrum dichotomer Relationen zur Diskussion: sei es das Verhältnis zwischen öffentlich und privat, öffentlichen und privaten Räumen, Territorialisierungen und Deterritorialisierungen, Innen und Außen, Partikularität und Universalität. Unter anderem zielt das Projekt darauf ab, das Verhältnis von Kunst und Öffentlichkeit zu beleuchten - ein Thema, das durch das 20. Jahrhundert hindurch mit verschiedenen Begriffen und Vorstellungen verbunden war. Der institutionelle Rahmen unterschied klar zwischen Produktion auf der einen Seite, Rezeption und Reflexion auf der anderen. Diese binäre Relation war nicht nur ein immanenter Effekt der Moderne, sondern geriet mit der Krise der Moderne selbst in die Krise.

Über die letzten 50 Jahre haben die Krise der Moderne und die mit ihr assoziierten Öffentlichkeitsbegriffe und entsprechenden Lösungsvorschläge eine Reihe von Schlagwörtern hervorgebracht: Partizipation, Interaktion, Institutionskritik, Aktivismus, öffentlicher Raum etc.
Das Wiener Seminar wird sich mit diesen Begriffen und den damit verbundenen Erwartungen aus verschiedenen Perspektiven und Disziplinen auseinander setzen. Im Rahmen der Votragsreihe waren letztes Jahr Etienne Balibar, Bruno Latour, Doreen Massey, Oliver Marchart, Yves Michaud und Krzysztof Wodiczko an der Akademie zu Gast.
