Art as a verbBruguera’s presentation “Art as a Verb” will be centered on Arte Útil which in Spanish roughly translates as useful or benefitial art, but also suggests art as a device or tool. Arte Útil is an artistic practice that imagines, creates and implements socially beneficial outcomes. This year-long investigation initiated by the artist Tania Brugueraincludes an online archive, an association of Arte Útil practitioners, an open-call, a publication, a working laboratory at the Queens Museum, an artist residency at Immigrant Movement International and a series of public projects and debates culminating in the transformation of a building at the Van Abbemuseum in the Netherlands into the Museum of Arte Útil in the fall of 2013.
This talk is given as part of the lecture series The Visitor Talks : Pre-ambulation and Retrospection.
