'DOings & kNOTs' is a group exhibition based on the artistic project 'do it', which was initiated by Hans Ulrich Obrist in 1993 and was on display at the Tallinn Art Hall in 1997. This open exhibition model collects written instructions by artists, each of which could be interpreted anew every time they are enacted. The 'do it' project, which is being hosted today by Independent Curators International (ICI) in New York, has undergone a fundamental change in terms of its institutionalisation and organisation. Hence “DOings & kNOTs”, which was initially planned to be about instructions in art, became more about the impossibility of following instructions, rules or a given formula. What is an instruction after all? An assignment? A command? A poem?
