“The Mousetrap Book: On dealing with institutions in contemporary curatorial practice” is a reader with the proceedings from the conference under the same title at Wyspa Institute of Art in Gdansk in October 15-16 2005 in collaboration with Buro Kopernikus in Berlin.

Mousetrap Authors: Barnabas Bencsik, Sebastian Cichocki, Hedwig Fijen, Maria Hussakowska, Maria Lind & Nina Montman, Dorota Monkiewicz, Vanessa Joan Muller, Barbara Steiner, Andrzej Szczerski, Aneta Szylak, Thomas Wulffen.

The term “Mousetrap” in this context is being used in conjunction with Rube Goldberg’s machine project, which influenced the imagination of many, starting from artists and ending with computer game creators. The very idea of big and funny machinery that accomplishes little appears to be a good metaphor for the ambivalence with which the art institution is being seen today.
