17th CuMMA Paper is now online!

The 17th CuMMA paper by curator Oriol Fontdevila is a short article about the possibility of understanding mediation as a space for dissent, a way of thinking art politically and to deal with the implications it can have in the art world. How to think mediation operating as a counter-hegemonic practice and not only point of contention, an immediate hurdle to the controversial power of artistic practice? In this article Fontdevila proposes how museums, collections, and curatorial and educational activities could work as mechanisms for both the articulation of dissent and the spreading of unprecedented artistry.

The article was originally commissioned in Spanish by Centre d’Art La Panera in La colección of the Ajuntament de Lleida, 2015.
