transform intends to foster the emerging field of new institutional critique in the visual arts and to research its effects on social transformations and institutional changes by means of specifically targeted measures of art and discourse production.
Starting from the experience of the transnational cooperation project republicart (2002-2005) transform promotes a further development of new institutional critique in the form of an array of precisely planned and prepared activities: 13 exemplary exhibitions/ art projects in various parts of Europe, 11 discursive events (workshops, symposia, conferences), a multilingual web journal, a European network of correspondents, a research project on the legacy and current practices of institutional critique, a book series, a series of issues in (art) magazines and other measures. These diverse activities and methods will present/debate the main historical practices and cluster the most current developments of institutional critique in the visual arts as well as widen the respective specific audiences/publics.
