We Cannot Work Like This
25/09/2018 › 28/09/2018 van 09:00 tot 20:00
The cross-disciplinary alliance “We Cannot Work Like This: Decolonial Practices and Degrowth” brings together students and teachers of several departments of academies and universities in the region in Belgium, France, England and Hong Kong, and enables that students work together in each of their schools on a proposal for sustainable, decolonial and inclusive practices in relation to cultural institutions and their own artistic professions. The students are invited to look at sustainability through the self-reflexive, intersectional feminist, anti-capitalist and anti-racist lens.
September 25-28 we meet in Venice with the members of the alliance. We are invited by the project Commonism, conceived by Nico Dockx and Pascal Gielen for the project Swamp at the Lithuanian pavilion of the Venice Biennial of Architecture.
The aim of this alliance is that it stirs interest for creation of a legal charter that would promote sustainable and decolonial practices for the institutions and the practitioners themselves. It is part of the Contour Biennale 2019, curated by Natasa Petresin Bachelez.
The students will use the collaborative online tool Ethertoff, an open source software program to make collective notes, developed and used by the graphic design collective OSP. This is where the collective knowledge is shared i.e. what is read, what is seen and (re-)viewed.
