Case Studies: Asia and Its Margins. Ural Industrial Biennial of Contemporary Art

Volume 12, Number 3, May/June 2013
by Alisa Prudnikova


Article Description

In this presentation, Alisa Prudnikova discusses various ways in which the Ural Industrial Biennial exploits its unique intermediary place in Ekaterinburg by interacting with local intellectual communities. Why is it industrial? Can industrial spaces appropriated by the biennial resist art’s tendency to become the object of passive consumption? How can contemporary art change public spaces created in the industrial epoch? What happens to the spectator who finds himself in these spaces, at the point where different meanings and practices intersect — industrial, post-industrial, commercial and artistic?
