In the last year, I have been collecting some ideas and observation to present the possibility of progress for contemporary art institution as a way „From the Institutional Critique to the Institutional Therapy“. If such a way to observe the institutional development is traced back, the question would be posed, how a contemporary art institution of commons after the „therapy“ look like or what will it be? What can be a historical starting point of such a speculation is the comparison of a most notable case of Institutional therapy movement – Clinique de la Borde and some current practices of commons. The goal of the comparison will anyhow not exhaust the topic, but rather sketch a new, possible institution where a practice of institutional therapy will meet with a practice of commons.
