TEMPORARY ART SOUVENIRS

TEMPORARY ART SOUVENIRS

Installation and collective performance developed within the DAI study programme and presented during Manifesta 8.

TEMPORARY ART SOUVENIRS reflects the students reactions on biennials, curatorial ideas, the politics and economics around art, and local issues in the region of Murcia.

TEMPORARY ART SOUVENIRS is an artist run shop which was open from the 7th until the 17th of October 2010 during Manifesta 8 Art Biennial in Murcia and Cartagena, Spain.

TEMPORARY ART SOUVENIRS sells specially tailored art souvenirs to as wide an audience as possible, translating high art into low, low art into high, and making it all available for everyone to buy as a souvenir of this special, one-off art event that is Manifesta 8. TEMPORARY ART SOUVENIRS popped up at a different venue each day, including the Manifesta art venues, local squares, shopping malls, migrant neighborhoods and tourist centres.

TEMPORARY ART SOUVENIRS is a project realized by Lauren Alexander, Lado Darakhvelidze, Jimini Hignett, Anna Hoetjes, Jeroen Marttin, Eva Olthof, Julio Pastor and Patrícia Sousa.
