>which are also the theme of the opening workshop 
>at the Lentos Art Museum Linz on 12 and 13 
>October 2005:
>1. The line of art production. Following the two 
>phases of institutional critique in the 1970s 
>and the 1990s, a new phase of critique is 
>emerging, which goes beyond the two earlier 
>phases, particularly as a combination of social 
>critique, institutional critique, and 
>2. The line of art institutions. Here questions 
>will be raised about the development of critical 
>art institutions, against the background of an 
>increasing pressure from repressive or 
>neo-liberal cultural policies. Beyond this, new 
>forms of the organization of critical art 
>institutions are to be reflected on.
>3. The line of the relationship of institution 
>and critique as movement. At this most general 
>level the question of the mutual relationship of 
>institution and social-political movements is to 
>be addressed, and how this relationship can be 
>made productive in the sense of emancipatory 
>  TRANSFORM is a project of the eipcp - European
