In the first meeting of the year Frédérique Bergholtz, Tanja Baudoin and Vivian Ziherl will be present. We will be outlining the programme for the coming months and begin exploring ideas around the notion of ‘appropriation’ and what it may mean to our own practices. Several case studies of artist practices will function as examples to help us speak about this field of research. We will read an essay by Isabelle Graw titledDedication replacing appropriation: fascination, subversion, and dispossession in appropriation art from the catalogue Louise Lawler and Others from 2004. Students will contribute to the discussion by bringing something that communicates an idea of what appropriation is or might be, as a way to begin what may over the year grow into a ‘collective collection’ of materials.
Occupation Evacuation Transmission is a project conceived by Ian White in collaboration with Emma Hedditch and Jimmy Robert, and curated by If I Can’t Dance, I Don’t Want To Be Part Of Your Revolution. Coordinated by Tanja Baudoin.
