Presentation at CIVA, Brussels


Institution Building Exhibition, Chapter #01 Format, Brussels / BE

A multitude of practices and formats traditionally remain unseen prior to the opening of an exhibition. “Format,” part 1 of “Institution Building”, makes visible what is usually hidden: maintenance, installation, inventories, fire-escape routes, schedules, budgets, organigramms—understanding them as productive and creative tools for an institution in transformation.

For the opening of the first chapter 'Format', CIVA invites Laurent Busine & Wouter Van Acker to talk about the Mundaneum of Paul Otlet, Aslı Çiçek to elaborate on the exhibition as format and Dennis Pohl to intervene on Diagram Architecture for the European Council.
