Assembling a platform to stage Participating Cultures
Chair: Inga Burrows (University of South Wales)
The term Participating Cultures originated in a lecture that I delivered for the 2010 Mongolian Land Art Biennial, as a critique of participatory practices and the Biennial form as a platform for staging art in a Global context. Then expanded and visualised in installations for the Venice Biennial and the Caspian Sea Biennial, and more recently in a text for the Pavilion Journal in 2014 where Participating Cultures is recognised as the second term in the formulation of the scheme of Post Autonomy.
In the new lecture I propose to provide a general introduction that covers the initial steps towards the conceptualisation and visualisation of Participating Cultures, beginning with how to translate the concepts into recognisable forms and language that makes the ideas understandable to a wider audience and contributors. And at the same time establish a platform to both discuss and stage a project examining Participating Cultures against a background of stasis and obsolescence and the current state of sociopolitical emergency, that forefronts the health and capacity for art and thinking to register this state of affairs? As a term it is intended to signal and trigger re-imagining starting again, leading to re-configuring the spatial global role of art. Yet before this possible any discussion of change, starting again, and reconfiguration is only possible through a general understanding of the space of art and cultural power.
David Goldenberg, (Hitchin, Hertfordshire, UK, 1956) is an important English conceptual artist. For years, his research has been concentrated on the Post Autonomy concept, which he has developed in a number of shows held at important international institutions, standouts amongst which are the recent (2012) The Scenarios of Post Autonomy, Glenda Cinquegrana: the Studio, Milan, Italy; Template – Mobile Documenta, Chisenhale Studios, London (2011), The Space of Post Autonomy, Arts Depot, Vienna (2011), Plausible Artworlds, Basekamp, Philadelphia (2010), Mobile Documenta, Fordham Gallery, Londra (2009), The Time of Post Autonomy is Now, Your space, Van Abbemuseum, Eindhoven, Holland (2009), The Space of Post Autonomy, Local Operations, Serpentine Gallery, London (2007).

The archive of curating degree zero is open to the public at the Media and Information Centre (MIZ) at the Zürich University of the Arts (ZHdK).
Information on the archive
Curating Degree Zero Archive
The Curating Degree Zero Archive (CDZA) documents the work of over 100 contemporary art curators who are known internationally for their critical and experimental positions. This collection of exhibition documentation, gifted to the archivists by the curators themselves, contains, among other materials, catalogues, DVDs, magazines and ephemera. In this way the archive presents a representative cross-section of the critical curatorial discourse at the beginning of the 21st Century.
The project began with the three-day symposium ‘Curating Degree Zero’, organized in Bremen in 1998 by Dorothee Richter and Barnaby Drabble. Between 2003 and 2008 the two curators worked together again on the Archive, which grew in size as it travelles to 18 venues around the world as an exhibition and program of live events and public discussions.
In 2011, the resulting collection was gifted to the Media and Information Centre (MIZ) at the Zürich University of the Arts (ZHdK). Since the opening of the University’s new premises in the Toni-Areal in 2014, the archive ist accessible as a permanent refernce collection in the lower floor of the MIZ.
The entire contents of the CDZA are listed in the NEBIS Catalogue, and material that, due to conservation issues, cannot be accessed directly in the reference section can be ordered for viewing through the NEBIS catalogue. Several unedited video recordings are listed in the eMuseum and can also be requested for viewing in the MIZ archive.
Further information about the archive and the touring exhibition can be found on the former CDZA website which is documented in the Arts Media Archive (Medienarchiv der Künste).
