Art and social communities

Presentation by Ditte Vilstrup Holm (DK)
The event is part of the program CHOREOGRAPHY IN ACTION

How does art organize communities? Taking its cue from a research project about social practices in public spaces, the purpose of the evening is to generate space for discussion and reflection about artistic strategies in respect to the formation of communities.
Research into art’s social practices has basically followed two different trails: the first trail has emphasized art’s aesthetic potentials in performatively involving, affecting and modulating participants. The other trail has emphasized artists’ ability to organise local communities in order to develop and improve local environments. In this event the two trails are connected through a reflection of the aesthetic dimension in organizing practices and the organisational dimensions of aesthetic forms.
