Is art to be understood as a philosophically acting entity – a brand of modernism that is revolutionary and perpetually unfinished – for which a public still has to be invented? Or will art only be encouraged, supported, and recognised if it does justice to prescribed criteria and merely «supplies» a culture industry? The consequence would be that important projects – projects difficult to grasp, «incomprehensible» by nature – would fall through the net of funding structures and media.

An open evening event as part of the conference «radius of art». Conceptualised by: Jürgen Bock (Lisbon).

Ao descer a escada
Há um degrau p’ra me sentar.
Não há outro degrau
Onde descansar.
Não estou lá em baixo
Nem lá em cima estou.
Estou é na escada
Onde sempre estou.

Ao subir a escada
Não estou em cima, nem em baixo.
Não estou na creche,
Nem mesmo no sopé, acho.
Ideias estranhas começam a girar
Na minha cabeça
Fora do lugar!
