Humans of the Institution available now

The publication following the conference ‘Humans of the Institution’, organised by Anne Szefer-Karlssen and Vivian Ziherl is now available for download here.

In November 2017, over 150 curators, artists, thinkers and students gathered in Amsterdam for a symposium and working session that asked ‘who makes the present’ by foregrounding the freelancer in the arts and within globalising dynamics more broadly. Having been a freelancer for over thirty years, a topic close to my heart!

The gathering was grounded in the figure of the freelance curator and the multi-vocal setting produced a series of statements with concrete proposals and in-depth analyses, resulting in the book Towards an Infrastructure of Humans. For videos of the various talks and workshops, see the project website.The ‘journal’ compiles the written record of Humans of the Institution and is co-published by the Van Abbemuseum, Eindhoven, and the Faculty of Fine Art, Music and Design, University of Bergen.
