Commentary clarifies, validates, and argues from a subjective position. As an instrument of opinion-making it serves to question existing discourses on truth. In this sense, it represents a form of political, social, and economic critic that reveals and problematizes power mechanisms by shifting perspectives and producing new relationships
Through an interdisciplinary dialogue, curator Michaela Richter and artist Christina Kral have assembled different manifestations of commentary into an exhibition setting—research and questions that enable a convergence of its individual methods and a critical engagement with their possible strengths and necessary shortfalls.
Curatorial Practices: Fields and Techniques is a project series on current developments, problems and methods of the curatorial at District.
