Nicolas Galeazzi Block overview

8 January-1 April 2018

plenum & forum

Fora&Plena

This post gives a short overview of the organisation and agenda of the block.


PLENUM
Plenums are gatherings of a.pass as a whole. All participants of the block program take part in each of the 3 plenums to share the state and development of their researches, as do the mentors, the research centre, the daily team and the core members as far as possible.
Plenums are gatherings to exchange about individual researches and practices, and are used to discuss how we, as a group of researchers, and the structure of a.pass can best support them.

The plenum doesn’t start until everyone announced is present.

 

FORUM
Forums are timeframes to discuss and work on the topics of MAKING/CONDITIONS, to develop and exchange knowledge or to practice the making of research. 
A forum can be a physical gathering from 1 hour to 5 days. Forums can be internal a.pass work gatherings, held publicly in presence of invited guests, or even take place in collaboration with other institutions.
Forums start at the announced time, wether the participants are present or not.

block 18/I curated by Nicolas Galeazzi

circus
This block combines institutional critique with a fundamental depiction of Performance in its various interpretations in economy, administration, performing arts, and sociology. Performance stands for productivity and efficiency as much as for presence, representation, and the transformative power of speech. Investigating the interdependency between our artistic research practice and its surrounding adinistrative and economic supportstructures, we will develop a pattern language for conditioning practices in the arts - a pattern language as a set of tools for finding the 'institute' behind our research.

Reading across technical tools and theoretical devices

Keyboard

In cultural institutions like a.pass, digital tools are used for communication, archiving, administration and production. These computational infrastructures depend more often than not on the services of tech giants and are put to use without too much space for reflection on how they actually work. If we want to bring technology within reach of interrogation and critique, how to break the spell of those paralysing regimes? How to shift the relationship from efficiency to curiosity; from scarcity to multiplicity and from solution to possibility?

weekly meetings

In order to explore MAKING / CONDITIONS we will try to create a Pattern Language for conditioning practices in the arts. With reference to the same named concept, proposed by the architect and philosopher Christopher Alexander in the late 1970's, we will investigate the patterns that help us to cretate the conditions for our artistic research through this very same research practices.

Shaking down the entrepreneur

tumblr_od79riRzmO1sv2w2so1_1280

This workshop takes place in the devastated landscape of the Creative Economy. Dipping cautiously into realms of business and economics (in which artists are generally and probably wilfully unschooled), we will take a pigeon’s-eye view (scrappy, opportunistic, only occasionally vicious) of worn-out tropes such as entrepreneurialism, human capital and cultural enterprise.
