Item description for Changing Roles by Liam Gillick & Johanna Billing...
How are you involved in the art world? Are you related to any specific scene? What would be the most productive place to present your work? What kind of curators do you like to work with, and why? What does the art market mean for your work? These are some of the questions that have been presented to every artist who has worked with Witte de With, the respected Rotterdam contemporary art center, over the past two years. This publication reflects on the ideas behind the works that the center has shown, and allows artists to voice concerns that are rarely discussed as part of a public initiative. The participants' answers serve as a model, suggesting what roles they need institutions, curators and programs to play. Contributors include Jesper Just, Erik van Lieshout, Sarah Morris and Robin Rhode.
