Oproep 1: Zorgzaam werken in de kunsten
Reflect on what an artist cooperative could be and how to build up support structures, there is a practical tool we would like to develop further: a Skill Share System, an inventory of the skills in a community is made and a platform of exchange is created where members can give skills they have and ask for skills when needed.
With a skill share system a community would be able to support each other artistically and possibly economically. The platform could also be opened up to make it possible to exchange or provide skills to other communities in order to bring about collaborations of mutual support beyond the arts. We think this would be an open, inclusive, care-full and solidary way to work within the arts and with other communities!
What role does the curator* hold in transforming environments whose trajectories are all intertwined with processes of globalisation? How are ephemeral experiences curated, archived and re-evoked across space, time and digital access, consumption and saturation? How can curatorship subvert the algorithms placed upon us and how can safety, solidarity and an ecology of sharing be upheld throughout?
I am interested in testing how participatory projects can be developed through hybrid methodologies between physical and digital contacts. Working digitally doesn't necessarily means producing digital artworks, it can also implies creating participation through digital devices focusing this period of transition from physical to digital encounters, but also mutations through digital communication.
