You can say: it’s about objectification, fetishization, isolation and reification; it’s about fundraising, budget control and its explosion; it’s about symbolic values and logistic costs; it tries to make sense of a constellation; it’s about hanging, labeling and having a walk in a defined space; it’s about scenic and decorative practices; it deals with relationships between artists (alive or dead), curators, organizers, artworks and audience; it’s about you looking at an item with the desire to touch it but you can’t, or mustn’t; it’s about dealing with ignorance, interpretation, historicizing and constant actualization. It’s about the ephemeral, and fixing, mounting and documenting, a fast and slow reception; it’s about discursive assemblage and material based meaning; it’s about being there before it disappears again.
