Celebrating unrealised artists' projects

This year, e-flux was invited to develop a special project for the Kopfbau during Art Basel. In response, e-flux developed a raft of projects situated somewhere between exhibitions of art and the concrete forms of social reality encountered in everyday life, drawing on a wide circle of institutions, artists, curators and writers who have been involved with various e-flux projects over the past several years. 

The projects include the Agency of Unrealised Projects (AUP) - a temporary office that exhibits a growing archive of several hundred unrealised art projects, including contributions received through an open call, as well as those originally collated by Hans Ulrich Obrist (they include one by Billy Apple). You can read more about this exhibition celebrating artists' projects that never got beyond the planning stage here.
