TCAC in the Future Tense: Unit, Conjugation and Discursive Artefacts examines how an institution can perform the role between its functions and its purpose of being a public platform through ‘institutional design’. The design concept explores how the Taipei Contemporary Art Center (TCAC) acts as a production house of discourse and as a medium of cultural communication to create and depict its own production line. Through the filter of interior design, it looks at TCAC’s institutional history with various approaches of proposals and productions in the recent six years, in order to investigate how TCAC deals with new collaborative circumstances that negotiate its own public nature.

This project discusses ‘Specific Indeterminacy’  within institutional design by asking how to ‘design for uncertainty’, to aid open structures and open discourse. As objects, endowed with both functionality and ambiguity, the furniture displayed is to be seen as discursive artefacts, turning the TCAC into an ‘institutional sculpture’. Through these tools of production, facilitating media and its original and transform models, it opens up the notion of display as a dialectical sphere.

Creating relationships between the materiality of institutional production and conceptual aspects, the project investigates the intertwining of cultural production and knowledge production – and the politics of social formation.

Project participants: Oliver Klimpel (designer), Fang Yen Hsiang (curator)
