'What do you want to be when you grow up?' From early childhood on, work is thought of as something of essential importance for personal desires. The profession we select plays a central role in the development of our identity, in how we speak, behave and relate to other people. The question: 'What do you do for money?' is the starting point for the curatorial concept of Manifesta 11.
Next to the Joint Ventures, the new artistic productions, the curated section of Manifesta 11 brings together artistic positions from the past and the present to examine how work can be subject of artistic reflection. At the same time, the selected works illuminate the concrete working conditions under which art is produced.
The Historical Exhibition: Sites Under Construction gathers artworks and non-art-specific materials from the past fifty years. The show, curated by Christian Jankowski and Francesca Gavin, is divided into eleven chambers. These are inspired by the intersections between private and public, the personal and the professional, and examine how and why artists portray the working process and relations that they face and engage in.
The exhibition will be on view from June 11- September 18, 2016.
