New art always requires autonomy for itself, an as yet unoccupied territory, a new institutional expression. This lecture will discuss the main institutional forms and relationships within contemporary art and will also trace communication between institutions and artistic thinking. The biennial, various forums and discursive platforms rebellious counter-institutions and huge museums, academia and research grants for artists, trade fairs and single autonomous creators, all this keeps the world of contemporary art in constant movement, the understanding of which is necessary to produce a personal critical position.
