Esparru politikoa komisariatu = Comisariar lo político = Curating the political
Over the last fifteen years Katerina Gregos’ curatorial practice has explored the relationship between art and politics with a particular view on questions of democracy, human rights, capitalism, crisis and changing global production circuits. In this workshop Gregos will present a series of case studies on some of her exhibitions which have tackled a series of seminal political issues: from the limits of freedom of speech to the refugee crisis, exploring the methodologies underlying socially and politically engaged curating. How do we understand the ‘political’ in this sense? What are the responsibilities underlying critical curatorial practices? How independent of wider art world structures and hierarchies can socially and politically engaged independent curating be?
