Hi Gerald,

The first question that comes to mind is what the object of criticque would be. The second thing that pops up is the institutionally paid self-chastizing. The critical artist
is invited and paid to swing the wip telling off the institution how degenerate it is. But those are the sins of the 90s. And you are more after an institutional critical practice not doing the navel-gazing thing.
As you mention actual institutional power quickly comes down to who pays the bills. There are indeed those shining art institutions that managed to be critical (ie. MACBA). Is it dependent on individuals who manage for some years to dance on the nose of those board members until they are fired? That seems to be much more the case than any structure that manages to establish roots in true criticality. Should we strive for free and critical networks rather than an institutional fiefdom? A few thoughts between Tuer und Angel...
