Where We Live? Looking for safe ground 3/3
Time & Location
About The Event
In the third part of Room For improved Furtures Where we live? Looking for safe ground, we have invited artists and theorists coming from Scotland and Denmark to discuss issues partly on local alternativ economies - partly on a global perspective and understanding on the distribution of cultural values - with a starting point in The Art Museum .This will happen through talks, a workshop, sharing food and coffee and an exhibition.
For the silk-screen-workshop please bring a t-shirt or a bag for the text based silk-prints. Paper can also be used - and paper we have on the shelves.
We will start the late afternoon event with the following talk:
For what is is worth Artist talk by Ailie Rutherford, Scotland.
In this artist talk Ailie Rutherford will present her long term project The People’s Bank of Govanhill which was initiated in 2015. The project evolved from her residency at Govanhill Baths in Glasgow to become a long term collaborative research project on community currency.
In an area frequently described as deprived, the project takes Govanhill's existing alternative economy as its starting point, considering the diversity and richness of the local community as a form of wealth Ailie Rutherford is a visual artist. Her collaborative practice is grounded in the places she works; inviting people to become co-producers of works that activate local public space and collectively imagine alternatives to the way we live now.
Manifesto for Maintenance of The Art Museum Johanne Løgstrup, DK Johanne Løgstrups talk will take its source from a manifesto she has made in order to discuss the future and the possibilities for the art museums today in the west. The manifesto deals with how to make parts of an art collection that has been hidden from view visible in order to shed new light on the past. It proposes a global perspective to understanding the Western values of the museum so they can be expanded, questioned, and decolonized.
And it will question the International as a paradigm and instead ask for a local awareness of its base so the museums as such retain the diversity of their history. Johanne Løgstrup is a curator and a Ph.D. researcher at Department of Aesthetics and Culture at the University of Aarhus. She is co-founder of the organization publik. In addition, she has run the project space bureau public together with curator Katarina Stenbeck and has worked as a curator at Nikolaj Kunsthal in Copenhagen.
