Collective Practices - Instituting with Care. Lecture by Lucy Lopez
Event accompanying the exhibition "Peer-to-Peer. Collective Practices in New Art".
Current forms of prefigurative politics - in which modes of organising are reflective of, and responsive to the urgencies at hand - have a vital bearing on institutional work. How can our working practices reflect our programmes and our politics? In her talk Lucy Lopez will discuss the forming of collectivities and counter-publics, and the tools these offer for instituting with care.
