Practice International – Stockholm Assembly
Is it possible to imagine other models of working internationally that break with the narrative of mobility, circulation and productivity linked to economic or diplomatic imperatives?
Considered here are artistic practices that produce autonomous structures emerging from a particular place or discourse, whilst establishing international constellations, that can be variously politically motivated, or based on subjective choice, or poetics or friendship.

Visual Cultures Forum No. 5: How to Live Together

Fifth Public forum from the Department for Visual Cultures on the theme of 'how to live together'.

The question "How to live together?" implies a consensus, but what exactly do we mean by this consensus? The 5th Visual Cultures Public Forum will explore this topic not only in relation to our Western context, but also with regards to the extreme situation that followed the genocide that took place in Rwanda in 1994: victims and killers cohabiting together for the last 18 years. A philosopher, a writer, and an artist will present their views on this topic, drawing inspiration from the writings of both Roland Barthes and Jacques Derrida.

How Can We Leave Our Beloved Ones With Such Joy?

Gathering, screening and conversation with Aimée Zito Lema
With Zito Lema's Otros Lugares/Other Places and Nyampeta's Anachoresis, we would like to feel out and discuss artistic urges to make such works. The following conversation considers these works in relation to both the physical and "historical" distance from the context of events, how distant events speak to us, and how the solitary works remediate modes of working – and living – together.
