This is Art and Art is Many Things

Public lecture with Sebastian Cichocki: “This is Art and Art is Many Things” | The 6th International Symposium Curating Exchange | Spaces, Functions, Fictions and Other Commons | organized by press to exit project space | 20 May 2017Museum of Contemporary Art – Skopje, 19:00 – 21:00 h

In the 1970s by Jerzy Ludwiński, a Polish art theoretician and critic, announced the arrival of postartistic times. He observed the transformation of art to be the result of its assumption of a completely new form; one which the critical language of his time was not able to do justice. Ludwiński claimed that post-art had an undeniably greater potential than the activities traditionally recognised as artistic. He wrote: “All previous notions relating to art are cancelled out, even that of authorship. What matters are the tensions created by the collective effort of many individuals that contributes to the making of one system, pulsating with its own life like some gigantic work of nature. Art = reality.” 
Such postartistic times signal an era in which a high “coefficient of art” (as the theorist Stephen Wright has described the phenomenon, referring to Marcel Duchamp’s lecture “The Creative Act”, 1957) present in many areas of life; when an artist’s work does not always materialize in the form of an art piece; while the art itself is carried out in a 1:1 scale, instead of generating models for situations and things. 
How does one measure the coefficient of art in a device which collects fog and supplies water to inhabitants of a desert in Chile? How much art is there in the collaboration of a Turkish beekeeper with a beehive during the production of psychoactive honey? But another question is really perplexing: is there more art within or outside the walls of the museum? 

Bubbles, Foam and Seas

Public lecture with Mauro Gil-Fournier: “Bubbles, Foam and Seas” | The 6th International Symposium Curating Exchange | Spaces, Functions, Fictions and Other Commons | organized by press to exit project space | 12 May 2017GEM Club, Skopje, 19:00 – 21:00 h

As described by Mauro Gil-Fournier, an architect and co-founder of architectural studio SIC | VIC from Madrid: As a collective, we want to place a nonlinear history of dynamics that are currently occurring in many of our cities under 3 different states. Citizen bubbles, such as the appearance and disappearance of citizen organizations and the creation of networks between them. The foams or states of complexity that arise when the bubble ecosystem has been created. The seas, as a transition-articulation between established models. These dynamics are not progressive or evolutionary in a linear fashion; Occur simultaneously in the city. They form a system with strong interactions and feedbacks between the components of the system. The non-linear history that we want to have here, with its attractors and its bifurcations, create dynamics that in the present case have a key factor: their situated character. We will explain through our work and development with the city, what makes Madrid today a prototype of citizen innovation and urban transformation.
