Luca Lo Pinto (Ed.)
Are there any limits to what an exhibition can be? Investigating and reformulating the conventional structure and limitations of exhibition-making and curatorial authorship is the focus of One, No One and One Hundred Thousand. The softcover newsprint style catalog documenting the experimental exhibition at Kunsthalle Wien, Karlsplatz in 2016, was curated by Luca Lo Pinto and was inspired by the work of Oulipo, a literary collective whose approach to writing was to propose new “structures” that were mathematical in nature. Nine contributing artists including Darren Bader, Jason Dodge, Phanos Kyriacou, Adriana Lara, Jonathan Monk, Marlie Mul, Amalia Pica, Martin Soto Climent and Lina Viste Grønli created new works in displays that offer an unlimited number of arrangements since they can be changed by any number of visitors. The viewer is not treated as a consumer, but as a co-producer alongside the artists and the curator. Recorded in the black-and-white publication are 178 unique exhibitions, with essays by Luca Lo Pinto, Vanessa Joan Muller and Mathieu Copeland.
