Public Space: Fights and Fictions

KOOPERATIVE FÜR DARSTELLUNGSPOLITIK

The Kooperative für Darstellungspolitik (Jesko Fezer, Anita Kaspar, Andreas Müller) researches into how political and cultural issues are represented and displayed in the public arena. They regard the spatial designs governing the viewing of exhibitions and displays as a public form of engagement and critical debate, a cultural process of both dialogue and conviction. The policies of display embodied in this approach are directed to these spatial negotiations, opening up discursive social spaces. The Kooperative für Darstellungspolitik has applied these principles to designing exhibitions including Geniale Dilletanten for the Goethe-Institut or The Whole Earth at the Haus der Kulturen der Welt, as well as the interiors of art spaces such as Casco in Utrecht, Index in Stockholm or the foyer of the Arsenal cinema in Berlin.
