"Measuring Revolutions – Intentions, Occurrences and Continuity from The Grand Domestic Revolution to Composing the Commons"

After a revolution, what is left? How do we measure the quality or success of a socially driven art project that desires social transformation? How does a project fulfill its artistic or curatorial intents? How does a project relate to social movements? Where is a place of art in a paradigm shift? Binna Choi, Director, Casco – Office of Art, Design and Theory in Utrecht, the Netherlands, discusses the above questions, taking three major projects she co-developed at Casco in the last years: The Grand Domestic Revolution, a “living research” project inspired by late nineteenth-century “material feminist” movements in the United States that experimented with communal solutions to isolated domestic life, work, and intervention with urban planning; Composing the Commons, a research trajectory on the notion and practice of the commons; as well as her recent curatorial work for the Gwangju Biennale initiated in the aftermath of the 18 May democratic uprising that took place in Gwangju in 1980.
