Another Criterion… or, What Is the Attitude of a Work in the Relations of Production of Its Time?

Marion von Osten looks back on the ‘project exhibitions’ of the 1990s and how artistic practice has responded to the social and economic shifts of the last twenty years? The editors of Afterall have asked me to reflect on an article titled ‘Producing Publics – Making Worlds! On the Relationship between the Art Public and the Counter-public’, a consideration of art and curatorial practices of the 1990s that I originally gave as a lecture in the context of ‘Never Look Back’, an event at the Shedhalle Zurich in 2000.
