CuMMA DS #42: Barbara Steiner — On structures, frames

In her lecture Barbara Steiner will talk about the frames and conditions of artistic and curatorial production. This not only implies to deal with interdependencies and intricacies but also to find formats and forms, which show this in the project/exhibition. For her, curating exhibitions is more than just presenting objects; it comprises the presentation of constraints, conditions and spheres of interests – be they of political or economical nature. This approach aims at talking about the framework of artistic and curatorial work already in the programme of an institution and in the exhibition itself

Pith Bull — Zine making as Artistic Practice

For centuries magazines and magazine making have functioned as provocative political and artistic tool for countercultural and anti-authoritarian movements. Essential in the communication of the Riot Grrrl movement of the 1990s, zines continue to play a crucial role in communications between activists and artists today. 

M{if} and Ruskeat Tytöt together with FemF ART invites you to a zine workshop and talk by artist Renuka Rajiv aka Pith Bull on Sunday, October 22.

CuMMA DS #39: Osei Bonsu — The Economy of Living Things

Welcome to this autumn’s first CuMMA DS lecture on the 17th of October!
Presenting his research project “The Economy of Living Things”, London-based curator and writer Osei Bonsu will draw upon fields of visual art, archaeology, music and literature to reveal an alternative map of modern migrations. Taking as point of departure the emergence of video art as a new frontier of documentary form, “The Economy of Living Things” is concerned with how artists capture the constant flow of bodies and the movements of plants, animals, artefact and other cultural products across real and imagined borders.
