Event Description

Working in partnership with an international team of curators, who not only serve as the cast but also as presenters of an international tour of the work, Tea Tupajić (direction, lighting) and Petra Zanki (dramaturgy, choreography) present The Curators’ Piece (A Trial Against Art) as a “trial” against art and its protagonists, challenging the utopian ideal of the responsibility of art to a wider society. Charges are raised against all participants: the artists who create a piece, the curators responsible for presenting the work, and the audience.
 
“Six curators take turn on the bench of the accused and get to speak in defense of art and try to prove what it is capable of – that a world without art is a dead world – it is convincing.”
Dagens Nyheter

Tickets $20.
 
75 minutes
Tea Tupajić, Petra Zanki and Florian Malzachar will participate in SPAN on January 15 at 12pm at the COIL HUB.
