The Display plays a key role within the process of exhibition making. A term that emerged in the context of exhibitions a decade ago, which refers to a ‘screen’ and to the visual presentation of factual matter; it also reflects new economies and new conception of (re) presentation oriented towards a specific “surface”, specifically a “user interface”(Dorothee Richter, Revisiting Display: Display and Backstage). Research and artistic practices have in some sense abandoned the ‘traditional pedestal’ and have adopted a wide range of new and infinite modes of presentation.
This allows proximity to various subjects, narratives and new ways of reading. But mainly it develops a multipicity of approaches of working and collective practices - where the concept of authorship is blurred.
