9-20 January 2017 / a.pass
everyone will introduce the state of her research,
a.pass will introduce her new team and organisation,
the curatorial proposal of the current block will be presented and appropriated,
the four dedicated mentors will introduce themselves and present their practice,
we will establish a ‘block research plan’ to decide what to discriminate between all the possible options in a dialogue with us and the group.
Prepare for the 9th of January a written text about you and the current state of your research.
A written synthesis of your research, and of you as a researcher, ‘at time t’.
This text -one to two pages long- will be very useful during the opening days as part of your individual presentation but as well as a communication device to introduce your work to your mentors.
Imagine yourself in a desirable future some 20 years ahead and imagine the present from there:
who were you?
where did you come from?
what was your research about?
what was the problem/question you wanted to pose with this research?
what was the current state of your research?
what did you want to achieve during that block in a.pass?
what were you speculating for within this period of time?
what were you angry about the world and or your environment?
what did give you hope?
