      2. This symposium will explore the social turn in exhibition-making in Europe and North America in the 1990s, looking at the part played by political activism, institutional critique and forms of socialisation influenced by the media and the moving image. Questioning labels such as ‘Kontext Kunst’, ‘social engagement’ and ‘relational aesthetics’, the participants will discuss developments in recent contemporary exhibition history, including exhibitions staged outside of the art institution that engaged with site in the broadest sense. Speakers will include Claire Bishop, Gregg Bordowitz, Sabeth Buchmann, Rebecca Gordon-Nesbitt, Stéphanie Jeanjean, Renate Lorenz, Christian Phillip Müller, Stefan Schmidt-Wulffen and Charles Esche.

        Organised by Afterall, at Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design, as part of the Exhibition Histories project and in conjunction with the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna and FORMER WEST. With support from the Goethe Institute and the Institute Française.
