This session of thinking together, hosted by New York based artists Ayreen Anastas and Rene Gabri, will focus on the multiple intersections between art practices, politics and education. „Ayreen Anastas and Rene Gabri work together. Ayreen writes in fragments, and makes films and videos. She is interested in philosophy, literature, the political and the everyday. Rene is interested in the complex mechanisms that constitute the world. He works within the folds of cultural practice, social thought and politics. Ayreen and Rene’s collaborative projects have evolved a great deal through their frequent contributions to the program at 16 Beaver.“ (http://arika.org.uk) 16 Beaver is the New York City address of a space initiated/run by artists since 1999. Since that time, it has served as place where those involved in art, politics, education, as well as a multiplicity of other contexts and fields of activity could discover and develop a common place to share research, questions, understandings, concerns, and struggles. Thus, it has been an open place to share, present, produce, and discuss a variety of artistic/cultural/economic/political projects. It has also been a site where discussions can lead to actions and action can be discussed and rethought.
Connecting the Bubbles is the presentation of a workshop and research process conducted by Mauricio Corbalán with students and guests during the entire period of the Osthang Project. In the first phase during the summer school the group will trace the supply chains of the materials and building resources used for constructing the physical structures that will host the event. In the second phase, during thinking together, Corbalán and his guests will put the whole Osthang Project into a larger context. By creating an interface between building practices, spatial analysis and economy, and by mixing different perspectives from inside and outside Europe, the group will work on a cartography that tries to render visible the position of the Osthang Project in relation to these frameworks as well as to current initiatives engaged in reengineering the production of the public, like Degrowth theories, P2P, Open Source and ‘Buen Vivir‘ movements.
