A public conversation about publication and public-making. With members of continent. and participants of the Open Scenarios for Non-Trivial Pursuits.
Artist-run research and teaching have long been the source of transformative potentials and radical rethinkings of how communities can be, work and act together, as distributed, collective, synchronic, autonomous and connective. These much deliberated communities support and cultivate the knowledge practices of curious people – artists, researchers, designers; thinkers and makers, activists; administrators, activators and organisers. In our current moment, such communities, if they are operational, are by default both digital and real, streamable and graspable. The very existence and prolonged discourse around such communities directly affirms the need for new forms of encounter between people, producers and audiences. We always need to co-create new potentials and formats for discussing, presenting, learning, sharing – knowing – as well via critical reflection on the media and the technological conditions that allow us to work together.
