Prologue to the presentation of the Public Sphere Laboratory.
Conversation, 11th December 2014.
DSS2016Gunea, Donostia-San Sebastián.
Magdalena Malm, as director of Public Art Agency, and Maria Mur Dean, as director of consonni, discuss artistic production in public and urban settings. On the basis of their practice and context, each of them addresses questions related to their experience in inviting and commissioning projects to different contemporary art agents. These commissions are on occasion formalised in works in the urban space, and on other occasions involve research processes that lead into strategies for gaining a deeper understanding of the social and the public sphere.
