Timing: On the Temporal Dimension of Exhibiting
Beatrice von Bismarck, Rike Frank, Benjamin Meyer-Krahmer, Jörn Schafaff & Thomas Weski (Eds.)
Curators and artists went wild for the first publication Cultures of the Curatorial out of the Leipzig School postgraduate study program. The second volume, Timing, follows the same research practices and format but focuses on the terms processuality, performativity and, more recently dramaturgy (the theory of dramatic composition) and choreography, terms used to analyze how exhibitions and curatorial practice have evolved over the past twenty years in the wider context of cultural and economic globalization. Nearly 20 contributors, including Bassam El Baroni, Claire Bishop, Maeve Connolly, Philippe Parreno and Bennett Simpson, weigh in on the wider cultural and economic concepts that have conditioned us to think about something as seemingly static as an art exhibition as sites of acceleration, action, orientation and mobility. Examined in this light, the exhibition emerges as a transdisciplinary and transcultural set of spatiotemporal relations—time-based by its very nature.
