CAPP Second Staging Post – Shades of Agency
Collaborative Arts Partnership Programme (CAPP) with m-cult (Finland)
Second Staging Post – Shades of Agency, Helsinki
Collaborative, socially engaged arts redistribute the agency of art-making among artists, participants and institutional contexts. In this event the complex negotiations involved in the production and presentation of collaborative projects will be discussed.
What types of roles are framed for the participants of collaborative projects?
What is the nature and degree of influence they can exert on the process?
How do museums, galleries and other institutions affect the projects they commission?
What kinds of social practices and contracts should guide the collective authorship, and how to respond to potential conflicts of interest?
How should the artist navigate the contexts and affects involved in the creation of a collaborative piece?
The event format is a ‘café discussion’ with short provocations from invited speakers and screenings. Join the event and share your experience with our 40 international guests from the Collaborative Arts Partnership Programme (CAPP).
