Future Focus: Art Hack Practice series, exploring shifting spaces of production, labour and artistic practice in a precarious world.

Wednesday, May 13, 2020 16:30 - 17:45
Time Zone: Europe/London
Local Time: Wednesday, May 13, 2020 16:30 - 17:45

The series brings together the international contributors to my co-edited book Art Hack Practice: Critical Intersections of Art, Innovation and the Maker Movement (Routledge, 2019) during three sessions. 

Session I: Where do we work?

Session II: Digital Platforms: The only platforms

Session III: Engaged Communities: Then and then

About the series: Art Hack Practice was released less than 6 months ago, yet is now a historical record of contemporary art and technology practices before the COVID-19 pandemic. Our community of authors have shared their global perspectives as culturally, racially and gender diverse art and design practitioners, operating at the nexus of art, technology and innovation. They have presented art-making and curatorial strategies that address and engage with social, political, environmental and cultural issues emerging within unusual and cross-disciplinary contexts of creative production. More than ever, Art Hack Practice can be seen as an important resource to help us collectively reconcile, understand and process our current situation. 

Through this series of three discussions, we aim to facilitate conversations that will help us in ways that are creatively productive and can seed and extend future formats for arts production and engagement. What might allow cross-disciplinary art and technology practitioners to begin the work of recovery planning from this trauma? 

Session I: Where do we work?

Many chapters and case studies in this book present collaborative and co-working contexts, which are at this moment impossible to work in. Our first session will consider what we can do given our current limitations and the resources that we have access to now. How might the notion of co-working shift?

Participants: Victoria Bradbury (US), Suzy O’Hara (UK), Irini Papadimitriou (UK), Hannah Redler (UK), Julie Freeman (UK), Clare Reddington (UK), Mugendi K. M’Rithaa (KE), Tania Aedo (MX), Garnet Hertz(US) and Saki Mafundikwa (US/ZI).
