Exhibiting as a displaycing practice, or, curatorial politics

Mende, Doreen (HEAD - Genève, Haute école d'art et de design, HES-SO // Haute école spécialisée de Suisse occidentale)

We might well already understand the complexity, including the troubling degrees of violence and the possibilities of misunderstanding that come with the act of making public, i.e., the exhibiting process. I would like to connect such complexity with a practice that cross-reads the double activity of “to display”/”to displace” to deem the exhibition a displaycing practice. The neologism stemming from these two verbs is certainly visible––a kind of stumbling block in the routine of linguistic cognition––but not necessarily audible. In such a way, displaycing offers us a way to articulate the entanglement of a process and a manifestation at once that carries both the temporality of an irreducible displacement through the effort of a network of practices, as well as the particular display-time as part of the exhibiting moment. Such an entanglement suggests the conceptualization of space (e.g., exhibition space) as spatiality through performance, action, and practice.
