Daniel García Andújar: Apprehension of the Postcapital Archive Reality
Württembergischer Kunstverein Stuttgart
December 13 + 14, 2008, each day: 12 – 6 pm
Registration till Monday, December 1, 2008
The aim of the workshop is to facilitate reflection on the structures of the “archive culture” process. We will delve into the methods of exploring and reinterpreting the archive along with the possibilities these present, intervening artistically using various methods. We are also going to test new public participation models of understanding and working with the archive. This process takes shape as a platform, understood as a cooperative space, enabling the work done to be shared through workshops, actions, and other instruments, opening up a vast range of possibilities for collective intervention and participation. During the workshop period, forms of creative, critical, and subversive handlings of media and new technologies, in both theory and practice, shall be developed. The focus of the workshop thereby additionally lies in the specific information and archive situation of our society. The project furthermore offers an opportunity to examine strategies of “artist practice in the Postcapital Archive”—a new public space having long been influenced by new information and communications technologies.
