5th - 7th October, 2007
Institute for Advanced Studies, Lancaster University, North West England.
Like previous knowledge labs the day will be divided into four streams, which will take place over two separate spaces.
STREAM 1: TECHNOLOGY
Stefan Merten together with Raoul Victor will present an introduction on their project Oekonux and then develop a discussion on the subject of free software - which is at the heart of their project - and difference and similarities with art. For more information on their project go to: http://en.wiki.oekonux.org/StefanMerten/KLab9Worksheet/Announcement.
STREAM 2: WAYS OF LIVING
Paper: Guerrilla Installation > Miss Information (FR)
Workshop: It is an escapist world but one can not make the escape > Jacqueline Forzelius
This stream concerns process, moment and performance. It is the political stream where we will consider primarily imaginative resistance and artivism, but also touch on debates surrounding gender issues, community and cultural production, and personal/political.
STREAM 3: AUTHORSHIP
Performance: Performance Work For Free > Beatriz Albuquerque/Campos Baptista (PT)
Paper: A Pedagogical Turn: A Discussion on Education as Art > Colourschool / Kristina (CA)
Forum: Collective Ownership: In History and Today > Nina Moehler and Martin Pederson
This stream will consider, ownership, patenting, appropriation and art in education.
STREAM 4: THE ART MARKET
Paper and discussion: New Models of Curtaing?: Possibility of non-curating in the network society > Magdalena Tyżlik-Carver (UK)
Workshop: How much autonomy do you need? > David Goldenberg (UK)
The fourth stream is intended to raise issues concerning (new ways of) curating, spaces (physical and virtual) to show art, and ways of making money: Marketing, the means of production, market forces and anti-market forces, the art market, and art and ethics.
