Kubus EXPORT, Vienna, AT


Each time a section of the project is completed, the archive is exhibited in an art institution in a city of that country, together with the series of Baby Dolls that were created where each doll represents one participant and her biography. After the exhibition closes, the Baby Dolls are abandoned in public places (see THE PUBLIC SPACE).

While the exhibition is on, an Expert Meeting takes place at which representatives from the spheres of culture, subcultures, politics, and scholarship debate the themes of the project and engage with the question of how effective art interventions in social issues are or can be, by including the specific conditions prevailing in that particular country.

All the panel discussions are documented, compared, and excerpts made available in the CONTEXT section above.

Background: what is a THE CULTURAL SPACE space?

This includes places and facilities that are institutionally legitimised and funded, for example, museums, art venues and galleries, as well as urban facilities such as parks and playgrounds. Such spaces offer the possibility of a performative publication of the biographies at a cultural institution of the respective country, and also the opportunity to exchange views and reflections with people from the areas of culture, subculture, politics, and science.
