At night I have the time to ask questions and debate with myself. Currently these are the issues buzzing in my mind:
– Why we are participating in this particular art venue as an association?
– Why we were invited in this art venue? What is the target audience of WHAT A MESS? art venue? Were we the “target gallery” in minds of organizers?
– What is the purpose of this kind of gatherings? Do we (Rajataide) need IT as a route to be seen/ recognised?
– Which are the reasons for artist-run spaces (globally) to apply grants and leave to the another country to present gallery activity and member art? Is there need to BENEFIT somehow=? Can we measure it? Do we need to?
And anyways It would be interesting to know if / how much galleries gather potential collaboration partners and even more how many of these “seeds” turn into reality for example as a exhibition exchange etc..
Basic question would be, will these kind of events create new? Will there be some real impact, forward-looking impulse or creating force to been seen? IE shall the spirit sweep over the hydrogenfabrikken?
