Critical Spatial Practice

  • ‘To be situated in place is to be engaged in a reciprocity where survival, both physical and spiritual, depends on our understanding of gestures … We do not live in isolation from the physical world around us. Nature beckons our response. It is in the doing, the being, the becoming that meaning is made. What becomes sacred is the act itself — not what remains. Something inexplicable is set into motion.’ (Terry Tempest Williams, The Hour of Land).

  • A wave of art strikes, boycotts, and occupations has engulfed global artistic circulation. These protests have directly or indirectly targeted artistic infrastructures like museums, biennials, and art fairs. Organizing an art strike, partaking in a boycott, or occupying art infrastructure are best understood as acts of productive withdrawal. These instances of social and political creativity reinvigorate ways of practicing and thinking about art by revamping existing infrastructures and giving shape to new institutional assemblages. These new assemblages sustain art as a practice of freedom.

  • Apolonija Šušteršič’ practice is research based. Her approach attempts to multiply the relationships between research, teaching and socially engaged practice. Her work tends to broaden the scope of art and architectural discourse by bringing cultural, social and political issues together to create a concept and inform the making and thinking processes of both disciplines.
