CAGE, Karin Schneider, 18 March 2011 - ongoing
CAGE is -- the opening of -- that takes the form of an architectural space, 83 Hester Street, New York, and a network that proposes a new form of interaction between a number of artists, writers, therapists, philosophers, musicians, and anonymous individuals.
In the above diagram a number of participants are invited to be part of Cage, and to create their own model of interaction with any number of individuals independently selected. Participants are responsible for the creation of her/his work and the subjects that will form his/her own schema. The composition of CAGE will be based on trial and error, and the changes and reconfigurations of the original, as well as subsequent participant's interactions, will be applied to the overall diagrammatic formation.
CAGE emerges from a desire to create and play a different game within the context of reality and art: to be an art gallery with(out) a gallerist, artworks with(out) artists, an ongoing group therapy with(out) a therapist. The presentation of any production within CAGE seeks to follow a new logic based not on the specular or on content providers, but on other forms of responsible engagement with our society. The display of either virtual or real objects is not necessarily the final destination.
CAGE is a site for production/consumption/interaction/distribution/discussion.
