Oproep 3: Digitaal werken in de kunsten
Based on previous workshop experiences, I wonder about the next challenges: How to create the feeling of “togetherness” between participants in a workshop experience? How to construct together, beyond the limitations of nationalities or regionalism? What do we mean by the pronoun “We” in the context of digital media? These questions work as signs to follow, doubts to think and reflect upon.
For more than ten years, I have been designing workshops that work as a tool for community building and as an esthetic experience. I am interested in how rulesets and performance elements shape these experiences. My task as designer is to organize spaces in which the spectator can become the performer. My drive is to know if we can move beyond the barriers of cultural background, language and species. As such I am interested in Bruno Latour's understanding of the “social” as a fluid and momentary association between human and non-human agents (‘Reassembling the Social’, 2005). I wonder if for a brief moment we can go beyond our barriers, and construct and experience together. This might sound utopian but I find in education and work places, like the workshops, labs and maker spaces, a unique opportunity to make agreements between humans happen, looking forward to the future of our societies on a local and global scale.
Together with the Interaction unit of Luca School of Arts and other cultural agents, We propose to design workshops as a tool for community building and aesthetic experiences. The goal of the project is to create a platform for workshops that enable socialization in hybrid ―physical and digital― environments that act in the local and international realm. It aims to influence the local cultural scenes of Brussels and Flanders by developing a symbiotic relationship with the rest of the globe. Based on Freire's idea that “Whoever teaches learns in the act of teaching, and whoever learns teaches in the act of learning.” This proposal aims to tackle sustainables and fairness concerns by performing workshops that underline the “social” and that imply collaboration and co-creations between participants. We outline next plan: to iterate our workshop already played such as Viral, Trueque, Pastiche and Oniric Maps to make an open call to artists to perform workshops To organize rounds tables about the challenges

(Start brief) Hey! Zin om te praten? Zin om praktijken uit te wisselen? Ik ben ingenieur architect en beeldend kunstenaar. Ik bevind mij hier in mijn atelier op Level Five in hartje Brussel en ik kijk naar buiten. Ik kijk naar de gigantische bouwwerven, naar de stad, naar de wereld en ik vraag mij af hoe het verder moet.

To us, DIGITAL is FREEDOM, it provides limitless potential, access and organic growth. Art should not be defined by institutions or corporate stakeholders. We want to shake the earth. To uncover methods that could allow for a rip in the fabric of MONEY EQUALS, DEFINES AND EATS ART. We seek to enable the development of a decentralised art world.
