The idea of the exhibition emerged during the preparations, pursued at lokal_30, to a panel within the Culture Congress devoted to artists’ engagement in social and political life. On that occasion, we met in a circle of artists, critics, curators and other individuals interested in the topic. Many threads emerged which consolidated our belief in the value of organising an exhibition that would mark a continuation of that discussion.
Do or die is a quote from Joseph Conrad’s short story Youth. The motto was written on the stern of the ship joined by the young protagonist Charles Marlow, Conrad’s alter ego. Treating that maxim with a pinch of irony, we wish to examine the issues of art’s effectiveness and utility, desired by many artists and critics, as well as the forms that these can adopt.
