Index of Exhibitions and Related Materials, 2013–14
Joasia Krysa (Ed.)
Systemics brings together a collection of new writing and curatorial projects that unfolded at Kunsthal Aarhus, Denmark, in 2013 and 2014. Presented are its various parts: details of the four core exhibitions and related events, two commissioned exhibitions, and four essays, together presenting the Systemics series program as a whole. Like any series, it unfolds over time in associative parts, using descriptive and poetic exhibition titles to develop a cumulative experience. Borrowing the term systemics from the Austrian cybernetician Heinz von Foerster to point to a new conceptual attitude embracing the growing complexity of the world, the book extends it to curatorial thinking as theme for the artistic program and as curatorial method. What results is something close to the understanding of exhibition as a series, to unfold ideas through their temporal relations in their seriality without an ending. Contributions from Franco “Bifo” Berardi, Boris Groys, Mathias Kokholm, Joasia Krysa, Fatima Hellberg, Lars Bang Larsen, Bárbara Rodriquez Muñoz, and Jussi Parikka.
