Pascal Gielen -
The Biennial and the Art Scene: a Post-Institution in the Post-Fordist Factory of Creativity

27th of May (Saturday)
2 PM Conference Room / Wyspa Institute of Art
Admission Free

Alfredo Cramerotti - Tagging and Other Amenities of Contemporary Life

25th of May (Friday)
5 PM Conference Room / Wyspa Institute of Art
Admission Free


Alfredo Cramerotti’s lecture will introduce a series of ’tags’, each discussed on its own terms, all taking onboard the idea of how-to use various ’systems’ that govern/influence/complement/sustain our lives i.e. journalism, books, clothing, leisure, cooking and so on. Please don’t assume this would be an exhaustive list of words, as it is not. It will, however, include the following tags, among others: Footnotes, Midpoint, Leisure, Suspension, Reception, Curiosity, Knitting, Skyscraper, Access, Gap, Perspective, Hole, Dependency, Translation

Come along and discover by yourself how all these may come together and make (some) sense.
