What is democracy? How do artists respond to this notion, and does this differ from practitioners in other fields? In this proposal there will be given an outline for a curatorial project called DEMOCRARTCY. The underlying idea of the proposed project is the notion of democracy, which is currently a much discussed topic.
The project aimed at the production of a newspaper in which several artists were asked to give a response to the notion of democracy. Alongside the art works, several people from other working fields were interviewed about art and democracy.
The artists: Holly Bowler, Thomas Cuthbertson, Patricia Ferguson, Mustafa Hulusi, JCHP (Jeffrey Charles Henry Peacock) , Danica Maier, Gerard Williams, Eleni Zevgaridou. Curator: Danielle Bastiaens
