International artists, curators, and other cultural workers were invited to contribute to a collection of ideas for an institution of the future.
Building an archive around the notion of an institution for the future, the publication attempts to initiate a discussion of the following across a broad professional network: What kind of institution is actually needed? What could be the actual model for an institution that we are hoping to establish in the future? These are only some of the questions that we hope to look at through the development of an archive of ideas.
Featuring contributions from many respected curators and artists including Hans Ulrich Obrist, Dorothea von Hantelmann, Jens Hoffmann, Marina Abramovic and Yoko Ono.
This publication shares same title as exhibition Institution for The Future, presented as part of the Asia Triennial Manchester, 2011, curated by Biljana Ciric and Chinese Art Centre.
