Kanon-Fragen

2016—2019

Resources are not only of a material nature; ideas and concepts, frame narratives and traditions of practical knowledge are also among the (immaterial) resources of a culture. What are the resources of cultural canonization processes? This year, the long-term project Kanon-Fragen is searching for answers with two exhibitions on site at HKW and further exhibitions in Portugal and Brazil.
