Although art can be related to the art market and works of art may be considered a commodity, there is art being made and exhibited for wider audiences who do not wish to collect works of art. The number of large-scale exhibitions is growing and art fairs are being transformed into events in the public realm. Boris Groys, Professor of Philosophy and Art Theory, Academy for Design, Karlsruhe, Germany and Global Professor, New York University asks what is the role and experience of the visitor in relation to the exhibit. Supported by the Stanley Picker Trust £8/6 concessions and Whitechapel Members Free for Whitechapel Patrons and Associates Booking essential
