“The museum is a medium that should constantly be able to be questioned. It cannot be anymore intended as a space of mere contemplation but rather as a social space based on freedom of experimentation and on the desire to realise artists’ visions. In a historical moment in which the concept of museum and its identity are constantly challenged by social and economic changes as well as by the language ​​of art itself, it’s essential to experiment with alternative models.

In occasion of the talk, I would discuss the program I’m developing at MACRO – Museum of Contemporary Art of Rome where I’m turning the museum into an exhibition intended as a form and place of production. A container which becomes content – aiming to reduce the distance between the dichotomies of museum-actor and public-spectator”.

Nova serija javnih predavanja međunarodnog programa „Šta kustosiranje može/treba da bude“

Onlajn predavanje italijanskog kustosa Luke Lo Pinta

„Reimaginacija muzeja“

Utorak, 10. novembar, Zoom platforma

Prvo predavanje u okviru novog ciklusa međunarodnog programa „Šta kustosiranje može/treba da bude“ pod nazivom „Reimaginacija muzeja“ održaće italijanski kustos Luka Lo Pinto u utorak, 10. novembra u 12 sati na Zoom platformi. U isto vreme, onlajn predavanje će moći da se prati i putem linka na Fejsbuk iventu (https://www.facebook.com/events/742363019682152), kao i na Fejsbuk stranici portala za kulturu jugoistočne Evrope Seecult, medijskog pokrovitelja programa (https://www.facebook.com/seecult). Predavanje će se održati uz podršku Italijanskog instituta za kulturu u Beogradu, koji će takođe prenositi predavanje putem lajv-strim platforme.

Povodom ovogodišnjeg ciklusa javnih predavanja, Biljana Ćirić, kustoskinja i organizatorka programa „Šta kustosiranje može/treba da bude“ istakla je: „Ove godine program će u saradnji sa institucijama širom sveta razmišljati i raditi na tome kako se izboriti protiv fizičke i ideološke razdvojenosti u ovim nesigurnim vremenima. S radošću najavljujemo partnerstvo sa Division of Art and Humanities Duke Kun Shan University i portalom za kulturu jugoistočne Evrope Seecult iz Beograda, među brojnim partnerima.“

U okviru predavanja, Luka Lo Pinto će govoriti o programu koji je razvio u Muzeju savremene umetnosti u Rimu – MACRO: „Pretvaram muzej u izložbu koja je zamišljena kao forma i mesto proizvodnje. Kontejner koji postaje sadržaj ima za cilj da redukuje distancu između dihotomije muzeja-glumca i publike – posmatrača“.

O inspiraciji za predavanje, Luka Lo Pinto je rekao: „Muzej je medijum koji bi konstantno trebalo da se preispituje. On više ne može da bude zamišljen samo kao mesto pukog promišljanja, nego i kao društveni prostor koji je zasnovan na slobodi eksperimentisanja i želji da se ostvare vizije umetnika. U istorijskom trenutku u kom se koncept muzeja i njegov identitet, usled socijalnih i ekonomskih promena kao i jezika same umetnosti, stalno dovode u pitanje, neophodno je eksperimentisati sa alternativnim modelima.“

 

Luka Lo Pinto (1981) je umetnički direktor Muzeja savremene umetnosti u Rimu – MACRO. Od 2014. do 2019. godine, radio je kao kustos u bečkom „Kunsthalle“ muzeju.  Suosnivač je časopisa i izdavačke kuće „Nero“. U muzeju „Kunsthalle“, Lo Pinto je organizovao samostalne izložbe Natali di Paskije, Kamij Enro, Gelatin&Liam Gillick, Olafa Nikolaja, Pjera Bizmuta, Babete Mangolte, Šarlemanja Palestina, kao i grupne izložbe Time is thirsty;  Publishing as an artistic toolbox: 1989-2017;  More than just words;  One, No One and One Hundred Thousand;  Individual Stories i Function Follows Vision, Vision Follows Reality. Drugi njegovi kustoski projekti uključuju Io, Luca Vitone (PAC), 16th Art Quadriennale (Palazzo delle Esposizioni, Rim), Le Regole del Gioco (Achille Castiglioni Studio-Museum, Milano), Trapped in the closet (Carnegie Library/FRAC Champagne Ardenne, Rems), Antigrazioso (Palais de Tokyo, Pariz); Luigi Ontani (H.C. Andersen Museum, Rim), D’après Giorgio (Giorgio de Chirico Foundation, Rim); Olaf Nicolai-Conversation Pieces (Mario Praz Museum, Rim). Njegovi tekstovi objavljivani su u sklopu mnogih kataloga i međunarodnih časopisa. On je priredio izdanje „Documenta 1955-2012. The Endless story of two lovers“. Godine 2014, objavio je publikaciju koja funkcioniše kao vremenska kapsula pod naslovom „2014“.

Međunarodni program „Šta kustosiranje može/treba da bude“ (WCSCD) pokrenut je i finansiran 2018. godine u Beogradu kao edukativna platforma koja se bavi pojmom kustosiranja. Od 2020. godine, WCSCD je počeo da inicira sopstvena kustoska istraživanja i projekte koji bi rešili tu vrstu složenosti, zadržavajući obrazovnu komponentu kao srž programa. Celokupan program i serije javnih predavanja inicirala je i organizovala kustoskinja Biljana Ćirić.

 

Seriju predavanja u okviru programa „Šta kustosiranje može treba da bude“ 2020/2021 realizuje se u saradnji sa Divisions of Arts and Humanities, Duke Kunshan University.

Ostali partneri na projektu su Italijanski institut za kulturu u Beogradu, Francuski institut za kulturu, Austrijski kulturni forum, Austrijska ambasada u Beogradu, Švedska ambasada u Beogradu i Gete institut. Medijski partner projekta je portal za kulturu jugoistočne Evrope Seecult.
