“Internal Seminar” is a new format established to provide a space for a deeper reflection on the issues that are important for institutional practice in middle-scale contemporary art initiatives. We hope that it can lead to regular exchanges that foster critical thinking and feedback regarding institutional habits. The seminar consists of two thematically interrelated sessions led by an invited guest lecturer. For each session there will be a reading list with the texts made available online. The seminar is free of charge, the number of participants is limited. The current “Internal Seminar” deals with the notion of “slowness”, and accompanies the symposium “Rethinking Locality”, organized by the Academy of the Arts of the World in Cologne.
