MJ Manifesta Journal, the international magazine for contemporary
curatorial practices, is organising a series of discussions related to
theoretical issues published in the journal. The discussions take place in
Sofia, Vilnius, Ljubljana, Moscow and Kiev in the course of 2004 and the
beginning of 2005. 

MJ Manifesta Journal focuses on issues of curatorial work, its strategies,
conditions, dilemmas, and contexts. The aim of curatorial reflection will
be explored in the 2nd discussion on November 23, 2004 in collaboration
with the CAC - Contemporary Art Centre- Vilnius, which will be followed by
a publication in MJ Manifesta Journal # 5. 

The 2nd discussion "Curators and Artists: Changing relations and
perspectives" is open to the public. 

The role and function of the curator within the field of contemporary art
has changed tremendously the past decade. The independence and
responsibility involved seem to have increased. The attention the curator
receives, as well as his or her identity have become an important issue of
discussion for artists and art professionals. The traditional boundaries
between those who create and those who mediate, in terms of organisers,
facilitators to collaborators in the creative process with the artist,
become increasingly difficult to define. In fact, where does the work of
artists end and where does that of curators begin? What conditions have
influenced this division of labour, of roles, of responsibilities? Under
what circumstances have the distinctions between the two become blurred? Is
curating a meta-discourse or does it exist on the same level as an art
practice? What influence has institutional critique had on institutional
practice? Can an exhibition be an artwork? Should artists influence the
structures and processes of institutions? Why, when, how?
