RASSEMBLEMENT DE PENSÉES
05 APR - 06 APR 2019
49 NORD 6 EST - FRAC LORRAINE - METZ (57)
Collection & property : what mechanisms are in play
With : Eva Barto, Cultural capital cooperative object, Sylvia Fredriksson, Eric Golo Stone, Emma Hedditch, Zoé Noël, Emmanuelle Polack, Mireille-Tsheusi Robert, Cameron Rowland, Zora Snake
What are the economic processes and power relations that get activated when a work of art is purchased? Financial transaction, redistribution of revenue, the restitution of stolen goods: these topics are central elements of certain artists’ practices, who developed strategies that use these elements as mechanisms to reformulate established relationships between art and property ownership, while also questioning the enduring connections between art acquisition, capitalism, and race.
The 49 Nord 6 Est welcomes you to join us and a group of artists and theorists in order to interrogate the ideological tenets of property in an era in which social relations are structured according to a capitalist model, a situation to which the FRAC must attend as an institution charged with purchasing works of art.
The symposium will be comprised of three half day sessions that take artistic strategies tackling this question as a point of departure. These will be addressed by the artists themselves, who will then respond and discuss their work with interlocutors from different disciplines.
