(10) Do you know any fact that restricts the possibilities of installation? (→ selected answers)

Tiziana BARACCHI (I): - Only prejudices.

Vittore BARONI (I): - There is always a (creative) way to surmount difficulties, you just have to remain flexible.

Lilian A. BELL (USA): - Possibly money and resistance by authorities and audience, but these can be overcome - an installation is like a chameleon, it can be retrofitted, and take on other “colors” to be shown elsewhere where there is no resistance.

David BORAWSKI (USA): - Ignorance.

Monty CANTSIN (CDN): - Yes, police, government suppression, etc.

Geoffrey COOK (USA): - Again, topography, social restrictions; many similar things can limit the installation.

Billy X. CURMANO (USA): - Small minds and conservative natures restrict the possibilities of installations.

H. R. FRICKER (CH): - For myself there are ethical boundaries.

György GALÁNTAI (H): - Theoretically, in an installation each element restricts the others through its own potentials and through being an “environment” to the others. However, since the possibilities are infinite, this “restriction” is the place of the linking points. Therefore the restriction is illusory, because the “proper” links increase the value of the installation in question.

István GELLÉR B. (H): - The lack of ideas, thought or money.

Klaus HEID (D): -Space and money.

James JOHNSON (USA): - The political reality of a given situation might restrict the possibilities of an installation.

Július KOLLER (SK): - Finance, materials, social terms, political situation (but it refers to larger, technically pretentious installations).

Miroslav KULCHITSKY - Vadim CHECKORSKY (UA): - Lack of money.

Jean-Noël LASZLO (F): - Money, censure.

Jacalyn LOPEZ GARCIA (USA): - Usually funding.

Michael LUMB (GB): - Finance.

Gyula MÁTÉ (H): - Strait-lacedness, conventional, (any kind of) museum-approached judgement of works.

Willi R. MELNIKOV-STARQUIST (RUS): - Some restriction factors I met were not strong enough to pull down my installation (police, size of the room, financial capacity) but basically the misunderstanding of people became the most dangerous thing.

Luca MITI (I): - Here, also, a lot of factors: possibilities of the artist, possibilities of the place, but also difficulties with the political power (police, etc.).

Alberto RIZZI (I): - Impossible technical requests; lack of money: but fantasy can solve every problem.

Jean-François ROBIC (F): - Police and time.

Péter RÓNAI (SK): - The only and unchangeable reason is: the classical human stupidity.

Lada SEGA (SLO): - Political, financial, transport.

Baudhuin SIMON (B): - Censorship! Everything is possible. Money.

Janos SUGAR (H): - Yes. The degree of the artist's freedom.

Rod SUMMERS (NL): - No, I don't think about what might not be.

W. Mark SUTHERLAND (CDN): - Local conditions prevail (geography, economics, culture and history).

Patricia TAVENNER (USA): - Money sometimes. Imagination at others.

Bene TREVISAN (BR): - The mentality of certain artists who haven't realized the relation of different things in the world yet.
