One of our questions is how to negotiate and to bring into the arena of curating the invisible, the marginalised, the immaterial, or the ephemeral. This is again connected to the political issue of representation: Who and what is represented and how does it come into the fore? How to define the means of representation, how to create and form methodologies of visual translations for ephemeral practices and long-term processes? A reflection on institutional framework conditions, namely of conditions under which research-based, participatory, socially-engaged and context-related art production takes place today in connection to funding criteria is of particular importance in relation to the question of representation. The funding situation and production conditions of the project series Work to do! Self-Organisation in precarious Working Conditions could be described as ‘Caught between two Stools’ and demands ‘more work to do!’.
