Even within small-scale and self-determined art initiatives now, the quest for mere survival often translates into an exclusive focus on infrastructural issues—on resources, funding, and even endless expansion. When do we actually talk about art? About specific art works and projects? About what they do and how they are perceived? As corporate megastructures like the Vuitton Foundation and maxi-bureaucratic approaches within public organisations demand more and more of our attention, we seem to have half-forgotten art itself. Or has art actually become something else altogether in the meantime?

Over two evenings, Maria Lind sits down with Doug Ashford, Mary Walling Blackburn, Naeem Mohaiemen, and Emily Segal (K-HOLE), to talk about individual artworks or projects chosen by the artists in light of these changes. For instance, Naeem Mohaiemen will discuss Jean-Luc Godard’s 1976 film Ici et Ailleurs (Here and Elsewhere).
