New Scenario. Curation beyond the white cube

Art and Context Programme

Art i ContextWorkshopsIVAM Centre Julio González

New Scenario (Paul Barsch and Tilman Hornig) introduce a workshop in which they will produce fast, ad hoc, exhibition spaces with works of art (proxi-) in situ. The activity will centre around the opportunities and problems with certain spaces when it comes to exhibiting beyond the white cube. Hence, they will explore some of IVAM’s spaces and will deal with questions of documentation and dissemination.

Participants should bring along day-to-day objects or art to carry out the activity.

Since 2015, the artistic and curatorial project, New Scenario, by visual artists Paul Barsch and Tilman Hornig, has designed and created various online exhibitions with international artists in narrative settings –(off)site-specific, without white cubes, which go beyond the conventional exhibition space- to explore and redefine new formats of presentation in the post-digital era. Their most famous exhibition project, Body Holes, which took place in the holes of the body, formed part of the 9th Berlin Biennale. In 2021, they premiered the group exhibition, Chernobyl Papers, which was done in the contaminated exclusion zone surrounding the remains of the nuclear reactor.
