This publication documents one year of projects at Loge—a curatorial platform located in the artistic center PROGR, Bern—in a context of financial pressure brought by the city of Bern due to commercial interests.
The guest-curatorial project Loge is located in the Stadtgalerie (city gallery), an exhibition space situated in the court of the artists' residence house PROGR in Bern. Loge functions as a flexible platform for various artistic and curatorial projects and as a springboard for emerging artists. In 2009 the future of Loge and PROGR was uncertain due to commercial city interests. This precarious situation lead to the formulation of new questions, and the focus on context-specific projects. In 2009 all invited artists created new, site-specific work, thus addressing both current architectural and political aspects of Loge. A process-related transformation took place between each of the five exhibitions. Materials, as well as entire exhibition elements were re-used by the following artists, creating both new works and new environments. Beyond the identity of the individual exhibitions, a process can be observed, that is both connected and separated from the individual exhibitions and seems to develop a dynamic of its own.
Published following the exhibition “Loge: Exhibition as a Process,” Die Loge, Stadtgalerie Bern, in 2009.
