16th of November (Friday)
8:00 PM / Wyspa Institute of Art

Admission free

The exhibition Teachers. Socrates at Duchamp’s is an attempt to link the academic milieu with Wyspa as an art institution and Alternativas as its strategic, project which we hope to develop in the subsequent 2013-2016 years. This is related to the observation of new global phenomena in the field of artistic pedagogy and its influence on the image and efficiency of the art world. The basic challenge at the Intermedia studies is continual responsiveness to changing phenomena and the demands of the environment, as well as the ability to re-adapt the curricula and syllabuses quickly in the light of dynamic transformations of the information society. Thus, we must look anew at such issues as: the education of an artist and the relations between the structure of Gdańsk Academy and informal links in the artistic milieu which make artists join in groups/ collectives or chose individual work.

The Materiality anthology follows the exhibition and aims to widen and expand the educational and research-related aspect of both this particular project and the Alternativa Festival as a whole. This publication offers diverse perspectives on both the object unto itself, the material context, as well as the social role of things[…] The anthology is proceeded by an introductory section where the show’s curators, Leire Vergara, Aneta Szyłak, Inês Moreira and Arne Hendriks, present their view on materiality and the essence of curatorial practice. The main part has been devided into three sections, titled respectively, The Voice of Things, Materiality, and In girum imus nocte…, which through texts by authors of various provenance, offer theoretical commentary on the exhibition and highlight its key contexts.*
