I am taking taking part in this in June. Curators Viviana Checchia (Public Engagement Curator, CCA, Glasgow) and Professor Johnny Rodger (Glasgow School of Art), have invited a collection of international artists, writers, performers, academics, musicians and activists from all over the globe to come together between 21–24 June 2018.
Participants will share their politicised practices and ask how the contemporary city can be written through curating, performing and building. The device of the ‘assembly’ will be a principle vehicle of exploration, with participants responding to questions both as artistic/cultural practitioners and also as citizens.
The subject will be expanded upon via four central themes: Art and the Contemporary City; Law and the Contemporary City; Writing and the Contemporary City; Publishing/Alternative Media and the Contemporary City.
Jasmina Cibic, Fucking Good Art, Peter Geoghegan, Agnieszka Kilian, Mairi Lafferty, Francis McKee, Hannah McGill, Paola Merli, Prabhakar Pachpute, Nikos Papastergiadis, Richard Parry, Andreas Phillipopoulos-Mihalopoulos, Alicja Rogalska, Lionel Ruffel, Mike Small,Jonas Staal, Ravi Sundaram, Andrew Tickell,Carol Yinghua Lu.
There will be various forms of engagement – conference / performances / exhibitions – all contained in two main arenas: a human assembly and an animal assembly.
