If one feels that a critical position is only possible if art fully embraces the terms and conditions of its own existence, it may be good to inquire where art has a bigger impact on social reality. Is it at the sites where critical artistic interventions are staged or at the sites of art’s public reception, in galleries, museums, and at biennials where these pieces are subsequently shown, discussed, and sold?
On the one hand, cities like Berlin and Istanbul have become important centers for the presentation of critical, interventionist art.
