The team of the Free/Slow University of Warsaw invites to a new series of seminars accompanying the exhibition "Making Use: Life in Postartistic Times" about Readings for Art Users. With reference to the legacy of flying universities, F/SUW organizes a series of self-educational meetings for users of art. Readings' participants will assemble a theoretical toolkit, which will enable them to operate freely within a vocabulary and concepts crucial for understanding the role and position of art in the contemporary world.

The seminar will be held in English
Recent developments in contemporary art have raised important questions with respect to the artistic division of labor, either in terms of « artworlds » or in terms of field. New characters have appeared besides the critic and the merchant : the « new curator », the « commissaire » and the radical academic stand out among a crowd of mediators. Curiously enough, the public does not seem to have a significant share in the process. This presentation aims to analyze the essential tension between the autonomy of the artist, as conceived since the rise of modern art and the voice of the beholder.
