unitednationsplaza Mexico DF is the third in a series of art projects organized around a temporary school format, started by Anton Vidokle. Vidokle initiated his research into education as site for artistic practice for Manifesta 6, which was cancelled. In response to the cancellation, Vidokle set up an independent project in Berlin called Unitednationsplaza–a twelve-month exhibition as school involving more than a hundred artists, writers, philosophers, and diverse audiences. Located behind a supermarket in East Berlin, UNP’s program featured numerous seminars, lectures, screenings, book presentations and projects including the Martha Rosler Library. Starting January 2008, Vidokle will present a related year-long program, called Night School, at the New Museum in New York City.

The Patronage for Contemporary Art A.C. (PAC) is a unique non-profit civic association formed by a group of individuals committed to promoting the development of contemporary art. PAC was founded in June 2000 as an initiative to bring contemporary art closer to an audience by way of collaboration with museums, galleries, curators, publishers, critics and researches in the field of contemporary art. Its board of directors concentrates the voluntary efforts of an independent group of cultural professionals. PAC‘s program is supported and developed thanks to the yearly contributions of individual and corporate donors.
