Lecture #1 WHY WORK?
21/12/2017 van 19:00 tot 21:00
St Lucas School of Arts (Antwerp) is organising a series of public lectures around the topic ‘Why Work?’. Speakers from various disciplines are invited to elaborate on their practice, and engage with MA students from St Lucas in a preceding workshop. What is the motivation and structure underpinning their work? How to remain critical? What happened to the promise of leisure—as Liam Gillick put it in his eponymous essay—and what is the importance of doing nothing? And last but not least, how do these speakers consider their position as cultural workers?
Sorry is the official name of an unofficial organisation.
It is an organisation in the literal meaning of the word: it functions as an organism that divides and melts together on any occasion. In this way Sorry has one spirit but many bodies in which it manifests itself.
Sorry has to eat, just like any other organism. It eats ideas, brain spiders, thoughts and corridors, waterfalls of speech, drawings, but also many phone calls and emails. The artists who are part of the organism feed the organism on an irregular basis, so life for Sorry will never be boring.
Sorry is therefore an irregular organization that can bounce and roar, but can also operate silently (?) Or can doze in the sunshine. Nevertheless, it is composed of a number of vital organs. So she offers a permanent studio to tree artists, she has a space for exhibitions and all sorts of experiments, and an open kitchen because artists have to eat as well.
