Comment of Hildegard Wittur, “Platz da!” art mediator

 

The comment of Hildegard Wittur, an “Platz da!” art mediator, about the videos of the exhibition “THIS IS A FREE ZONE Queerhana in the context of autonomous movements in Israel/Palestine from 2001-2009” was to be seen and heard during the last weekend of the exhibition. Her reception, description and evaluation present a perspective which is often not accepted by the art system. But as Carmen Mörsch stated in 2002: “[…] art is in itself discursive. The courtesy towards art and the respect for its discursivity, forces the viewer to stop their veneration in its silent shape of starring and to answer, to step into the discourse. Accordingly art education works if it opens a room for comments which might not have been planned by the art system.”
