Following the model of Joseph Beuys’s participatory project during documenta 6 in 1977, the museum is about to become a place of open dialogue on our society and democratic values as well as an arena for shared experience. A starting point is the video work On Fear and Education, Disappointment and Justice, Protest and Division in Saxony/Germany by Mario Pfeifer. Artists, designers and architects are invited to engage the audience in a fluid discourse on politics and their understanding of democracy as reflected in artistic thought and practice. The program, which for the first time ever will be codetermined by the museum visitors themselves in a preparatory workshop, will be announced in September at www.pinakothek-der-moderne.de.
