Public Art Policies
Progressive Art Institutions in the Age of Dissolving Welfare States

26-28 February, 2004
Kunsthalle Exnergasse, WUK
A - 1090 Vienna, W”hringer Straþe 59

Progressive art institutions function both as buffers against the
influence of state and capital on critical art practices and as
machines of a soft instrumentalisation of resistance. In the
neo-liberal transformation process of the welfare state the
institutions seem increasingly to be losing their role of fostering
radical art practices: along with the financial constraints, the
financing bodies exert an increasingly direct influence on the
programs. What are suitable strategies and alliances between artists,
art institutions and progressive cultural policies, which are able to
reinforce the little onsets of artistic critique in the age of
dissolving welfare states?

Esche, Solvita Krese, Chantal Mouffe, Marita Muukkonen, Gregor
