Dorothea von Hantelmann
Exhibition form as cosmology of modern society

The lecture "Exhibition form as cosmology of modern society" will be held in the framework by Winzavod Philosophical club on March 26. The famous German curator, theorist and art historian Dorothea von Hantelmann (Dorothea von Hantelmann) will talk about how since the eighteenth century to the present day transformirovalsya museums and exhibitions, as well as what to expect in future space art. The lecture will begin at 19:30 in the Vintage hall.

What conclusions can be drawn if we consider the Museum and exhibition not only as a space for storing objects of art, but as institutions that communicate certain values and concepts to society? Dorothea von Hantelmann sees them as a special ritual of modern liberalism. Art institutes reflect the signs of their time: Tate Modern will tell us as much about the state of Western society now as Crystal Palace in London — about the ideas of increasing the productive power of the middle of the XIX century, or the early Kunstkameras — about the growth of consumerism culture. How long will museum and exhibition play this role? Will there be a new social ritual, which will replace an exhibition form? Guests of Winzavod  Philosophical club together with Mrs von Handelmann will discuss these and other issues. 

Co-curator of Winzavod Philosophical Club Andrey Schental:“If in the XIX century novel was a genre of all genres, in the second half of the XX century we are dealing with installation as a form of all forms of art. But if we go beyond the theory of art, we will find broader social processes — formation of the so — called "exhibition complex", and then ideology of "a white cube". As globalization progresses, it is an exhibition of contemporary art that becomes the dominant cultural form. It unifies artistic production and largely determines our ways of seeing and knowing. Thanks to it we are able to consider globally ideas, values and rituals of modern society”.
