Caveat is a collective research project initiated by Jubilee, reflecting and acting on the ecology of artistic practice. Emptor continues along the methodology and efforts of Caveat. It actively applies the practice-based approach to 'property', a concept that highly defines the economy of visual arts.

Reading Room #24: To an Institution of Critique

16:00 - 18:00
Meyboom Artist-run Spaces (ground floor)
Boulevard Pachecolaan 34, 1000 Brussels

Working towards Emptor's third assembly of practice 'Whose institution?' Jubilee invites you to Reading Room #24. We will gather around the text 'From the Critique of Institutions to an Institution of Critique' by Andrea Fraser (2005).

Throughout her analysis of the art institution as the conception of a social field, stating that 'We are the institution!', Andrea Fraser invites us to think the institution as a common, embodied and performed by individuals, and re-think strategies of critique.

In between reading excerpts, everyone is welcome to contribute to the discussion on our possible roles in co-defining and creating the 'arts institution'.

In Reading Room #25: Lumbung (27 October 2022), we will collectively read and reflect upon the positioning text of documenta 15. With 'lumbung', it proposes a shared access to what the institution of art can be.
