During my posts, I will develop this Archive-Practice research proposition by focusing on four experiences based in Armenia. Each offers a concrete situation made interesting by their particular problematic and history. The second episode considers the International Summer School for Art Curators in Yerevan, which since 2006 is organized yearly by AICA Armenia.
The Shiryaevo Biennial (Russia) is oriented to a concept of process, from the realization of artworks to their installation to their reception. Instead of relying on the model of the guides and docents touring the public through to understand the artworks, they started the Biennial concept with the guided tour as a format. Case study on two artists who used this inside their works in this framework, Dmitry Gutov and Peter Haury & Elke Hammelstein.
