#Salón do MARCO - MARCO lounge. A place for doing

22.04.2017 - 01.03.2018

in short

#SALÓN DO MARCO is conceived as a place which is familiar and recognizable to society, as a living room for gathering around a table or sitting on a sofa to talk about current events. This ‘place for being’ is a project for collective mediation, experimentation, and research which will provide momentum for launching new learning communities.

Contemporary art museums are spaces which create subjectivities and amplify narratives. They are places for the sublime, but also are catalyzers of the present moment. They should be places which interrogate society and places which in turn are affected by their relationship with society. Contemporary art museums should be places where the commitment to contemporaneity conditions the implementation of new procedures in which discourse becomes the cornerstone of art.
#SALÓN DO MARCO is conceived as a place which is familiar and recognizable to society, as a living room for gathering around a table or sitting on a sofa to talk about current events. This ‘place for being’ is a project for collective mediation, experimentation, and research which will provide momentum for launching new learning communities. Mediation is not considered here as a process for explanation of what is taking place in society, but instead as a device for intertwining networks and connections.
Opening a lounge at MARCO provides a new infrastructure in the museum with the intention of experiencing a different type of interface which defends the capability of the citizens themselves to build and develop communal projects. Through a variety of mechanisms the citizens are called upon to appropriate the #SALÓN DO MARCO — new modes for research, discussion, seminars, the construction of the space itself, and the launch of learning communities are some of the interventions to be undertaken.
This process begins with the construction of the lounge itself: #Hacer Espacio [Making Place] includes a pre-enrollment open workshop coordinated by collective Tecnoloxías Apropiadas — Alejandro F. Palicio — consisting of the construction of a space suitable for the lounge’s different uses.
