Daniel García Andújar, Listen To The People‘s Wrath.November 22–25, 2012 WORKSHOP

November 22–25,

November 22–25, 2012
Daniel García Andújar, Listen To The People‘s Wrath
In English Language

Based on the „anti-anti-riot-kit“ which Daniel García Andújar produced for the exhibition at Württembergischer Kunstverein Stuttgart, this workshop understands itself as an open offer to explore analogue and digital techniques of protest, both in theory and practice. Protest forms that use the street as stage of main interest here.

The basic tools of the workshop are a conversed ant-riot-gear, stencils, t-shirts, flags etc. The latter carry among other things the slogan “”. Further tools are mechanical movable types, a so called “action camera”, and a digital with materials from the fields of riot, anti-riot, and anti-anti-riot.

The workshop aims to develop horizontal and collective ways of working as well as a productive and at the same time (self)critical analysis of the forms and formats of protest: their performativity, choreographies and role allocations. Present, past as well as upcoming protests and protest movements can serve here as references.

Behind the background of the slogan “Let’s Democratize Democracy” the workshop intends to discuss structures of democracy, participation and social transformation processes. Of main interest here are those conflicts and difficulties which are inherent to democracy: its fragility, its requirements and our expectations.

An artist who uses irony and presentation strategies that employ new communication technologies to question the democratic and equalitarian promises of these media and criticise the desire for control lying behind their apparent transparency. Based on the confirmation that new information and communication technologies are transforming our everyday life, Daniel G. Andújar created a fiction (Technologies To The People, 1996) designed to make us increase our awareness of the reality around us and of the deception in promises of free choice that are converted, irremissibly, into new forms of control and inequality. A long-time member of i rational.org (international reference point for art on the web) and founder of Technologies To The People , he is the creator of numerous projects on the Internet such as art-net-dortmund, e-barcelona.org, e-valencia.org, e-seoul.org, e-wac.org, e-sevilla.org, Materiales de artista, etc. He has directed numerous workshops for artists and social collectives in different countries.
