POOL is an emergent platform for curatorial
and artistic production, experimentation and
research, working with artists to support and
commission new work. Emerging from a joint
investigation into the role, form, and organ-
ising systems of art institutions in South Africa,
POOL considers from a curatorial and artistic
perspective, the question of what it means to
institute and how to institute in a South African
(and specifically Johannesburg) context.
POOL is organised as an experiment in alter-
native instituent forms and as a site through
which to stretch curatorial methodology and
artistic practice through the frames of self-
organising and self-instituting.
