Open Systems publishes a quarterly journal on critical perspectives in art and visual culture, analogous to ARTSLAB, an interdisciplinary online exhibition. The platform is supported by an international advisory board of theorists, cultural producers, curators and artists. In the fall issue of the journal, guest editor Berin Gölönü discusses the question of how models of surveillance and censorship work together to control our actions and curtail freedom of expression in real and virtual, private and public life.
In his performance lecture, Christian Egger – ARTSLAB curator of “Gocce di sole nella città degli spettri” – looks at the history and aesthetics of institutional critique. The presentation includes a series of international artworks including video, performance, sculpture and graphic art, with a focus on the area of tension between politics, art and theory.
