What forms an institution? Artists, curators, and scholars discuss what institutions are, which duties they fulfil, which criticism they should be subject to, and how they could be conceived differently. They refer to examples of architecture, the visual arts, and law, and they ask for a tradition of institutional critique in the performing arts, and for a philosophy of potentialities. ‘'Performing Institutions' is a working journal on conditions, objectives, and necessary updates of institutions, compiled from excerpts of the conversation series '‘Performing Institutions’ and combined with scene descriptions and archive materials of the artists and editors Herbordt/Mohren.
