Jack Segbars
Author, Platform and Spectator

By means of a video-interview project with artists, curators, theorists and organizers, Jack Segbars explores the question of authorship within contemporary art production. Through critical reception, and the way in which it is presented, begets its meaning, relevance and form. This means that the wider chain of production can be seen as co-authors. What possibilities arise by understanding authorship as communal e ort between the di erent positions of artist, curator, critique and the platform of presentation as site of production? And what can be its political relevance within the current conditions of artistic production?

Participants: Maziar Afrassiabi, Mohammad Salemy, Charles Esche, Rachel O’Reilliy, Armen Avanessian, Lietje Bauwens and Sami Khatib
