WHAT EVER HAPPENED TO NEW INSTITUTIONALISM?. Ed. by James Voorhies. Sternberg Press, Berlin, 2016. Published in association with Carpenter Center for Visual Arts, Harvard University, Cambridge. Distributed in the U.S.A. by Ram Publications, Santa Monica. 192 pp. 22 x 15 cm. ISBN 9783956792342 In English.
Publisher's description: The first in a new series of readers from the Carpenter Center for Visual Arts at Harvard University, Whatever happened considers the impact of New Institutionalism on art institutions and their curatorial strategies in light of today's contemporary globalized culture. Originating in Europe in the 1990s, New Institutionalism sought to reconfigure the art institution from within into an active, democratic, open and egalitarian public sphere. This timely and fascinating subject is amply illustrated in the hardcover publication which brings together facsimiles of seminal texts, new critical essays, a history of trends and practices, commissioned artist projects and contributions by a variety of artists, architects, writers, historians and theorists including Martin Beck, Le Corbusier, Maria Lind and Markus Miessen. Working in these new modes, the art institution becomes a site of fluidity, unpredictability and risk. Completed in 1963, the CCVA was designed by Le Corbusier to house Harvard's visual arts program, featuring a combination of academic workshops, artist studios and exhibitions.
