Participation on Trial, 10-11 October
Doopsgezinde Kerk & Castrum Peregrini, Amsterdam
Drawings I made as a 'court artist' during the conference Participation on Trial, which discussed questions around participatory art in the form of a mock trial against 'the prevailing paradigm' in the contemporary art world and its public institutions. In the end, the judgement was that 'the prevailing paradigm' was indeed guilty of all charges, except that the accused could not be found, because no one knew what it was. According to the defense, this meant that the trial was a farce; according to the jury, it meant that we are all guilty.
