Interview by: Ewelina Bartosik What is the pedigree of municipal collections? Simply one type of municipal collection. Why can large territorial bodies act as collectors in Poland, not cities? This process could be based on giving cities the right to lead their own policies — for example, establishing alliances for certain areas independent of national policy. Creating independent municipal collections could fit within this scheme.
Do we really need municipal collections? Unfortunately, there is no research on the topic. I would reserve the term municipal collection for art collections set up for a particular city, rather than financed by that city. That sort of art I call the art of the city. I would distinguish such collections from art collections — mostly contemporary — financed from the municipal budget, as well as so-called history museums in certain cities.
Municipal collections, in other words, aim at documenting a given city as a collective, multimedia work of art.
It carries the threat of fetishizing a certain communal aspect, which undergoes experimentation in the field of art. One of the basic premises of this type of project is to bring about specific change. This is a problem described by Miwon Kwon, among others. Locality in contemporary art is a topic, rather than a characteristic. Miwon Kwon describes the process of splitting art from a place and relating it the performative urban collective. This process is both social and artistic.
It leads, rather, to experimentation with ephemeral municipal communities than to experimentation between artists with local communities. Ewa Rewers, Ph.
