Coming Commons
Nov 2020 / Manifesta13

Coming Commons is a proposal by the digital art and research platform Station of Commons (Gregoire Rousseau and Juan Gomez) to reflect and open up on current forms of digital commoning in an online conference. It happens on an invitation by ex situ – Cassandre Langlois & Simona Dvořáková – and the curatorial duo Gabrielle Boder & Tadeo Kohan.

Coming Commons brings forward discussions on the future of distribution and archives of printed matters with artist Anne-Laure Franchette, co-organizer of Volumes book fair. Juan Pablo García Sossa will present his research project Instituto Habanero on post-conflict situations in Colombia and his proposition of Magical Realism as a form of Speculative Design applied in Global South in conversation with theorist and curator Nora Sternfeld (Professor HFBK Hamburg).

Coming Commons is the second iteration of the project The Coming Community as part of Manifesta13 hosted at HFBK in Hamburg.

What if? Questions happen in the library
On the Digital in the Arts and society at large.

Exhibition in French Institute in Helsinki.
Nov 2020

What if the French Institute would be a space to intersect media-based culture and contemporary art practice? What if this space of traditional knowledge distribution would operate as a platform for radical digital practices? How to produce a space such that the social element present in the institute would engage with an artistic practice
always in the making?

Curatorial work with artits:
 Flora Bouteille, Free Frag Steeve Bauras , Felipe de Avila , Yassine KhaledNicolina StylianouJoakim Pusenius.

WHAT SYSTEM ACTUALLY?


Symposium of the Kunsthochschule Kassel in collaboration with Station of Commons
17th and 18th of July 2020

The two-day symposium entitled “What System Actually” refers to the German term “System-relevant”, in reference to the essential workers “necessary” to keep “the system” running during the ongoing pandemic. Paradoxically, the pandemic has amplified the very exploitative conditions of neo-liberal capitalism, exposing the precariousness of many of the system’s “relevant” workers. Through this symposium we would like to interrogate “the system” through thoughtful conversations about the potential to move beyond notions of competition & exploitation.

This time, Tohu-Bohu will experiment with energy from within the body to produce the necessary electricity in order to generate sound waves. A set of four reversed motors will act as the knobs, however these special knobs will require effort... What if the body relation to sound was not precision and speed but stamina and force?
