Art & Activism with Adbusters, Brandalism And Center For Political Beauty

Share

Category:

Country:

CAMP is a residential arts facility in the French Pyrenees. It's a place where great art is made, new movements are formed, new ideas are explored and groundbreaking people are nurtured. CAMP is located in Aulus les Bains, the last village before the France/Spain Pyrenean frontier chain. The location is spectacular - we are nestled at 750m above sea level, surrounded by snowcapped peaks over 3000m high, ancient forests and cascading waterfalls. There are eagles, lammergeiers, vultures, ibex and bears. Walk out of the residency, and within ten minutes you are completely alone in one of the most beautiful mountain landscapes in Europe. Aulus les Bains is also a spa village - there are hot water springs, and a thermal spa in the village to take advantage of the healing and relaxing properties of the water.
    
Workshop dates: 31/07/2019 - 05/08/2019
    
Climate change, Trump, Brexit, the rise of the right wing, increasing poverty and the increasingly desperate thrashing of late-stage capitalism - the old debate of the artist as societal mirror or social pioneer is becoming more and more obsolete as the reality becomes clearer - there is no political art, there is no activist art - all art is political, all art is politically active. The only question is - what kind of social statement is the artist making? The production of decorative canvases intended to adorn the walls of the wealthy is an active social statement. The creative hijacking of corporate advertising and communications is another.

This session will examine the responsibility of the artist in our epoque, and the opportunities for protest and social change available to active, creative individuals and collectives. It will be carried out by three of the most dynamic collectives active in the diverse fields of humanitarian / anti-capitalist / anti-corporate art: Adbusters, Brandalism and the Center for Political Beauty.

Brandalism is an international collective of artists that challenge corporate power in public space around the world. Corporate advertising influences every aspect of our modern lives: from how we feel about ourselves; our bodies; our understandings of gender, race and class; through to our perceptions of others and the world we live in. Building resistance and resilience to corporate power is at the heart of the culture wars in the 21st century so with nothing more than high-vis jackets, special keys, and shared creative principles we create the world's largest ad takeovers that hold corporate power to account. Read more about Brandalism here: http://brandalism.ch/manifesto/

Brandalism will share tactics and approaches that allow diverse artists to hack the city, challenge corporate power, and get away clean. Expect a deep dive into a range of forms of critical public art and the socio-political history of each. We'll explore solo vs collective actions, subversive tactics and more. Brandalism will also provide practical (action-led) trainings, ensuring participants have a range of resources that enable all participants to begin hacking the city where they live.

Adbusters is a global network of artists, activists, writers, musicians, designers, poets, philosophers, and punks trying to pull off a radical transformation of the current world order. Our media foundation publishes a bi-monthly magazine and invents cultural campaigns that explore the erosion of the mental and physical environment by commercial forces.

"To resist evil is the highest achievement of human life." - Chris Hedges

As artists, you hold the power of persuasion and perspective changing. Through visual communication, you influence the way people think, feel, and act. How will you employ your skills for radical good and resist the pull of the corporate consumerist tide? Dayna Mahannah and Maggie McPhee are the campaign and project managers at Adbusters magazine. Their recent campaign, the First Things First Project, zeroes in on the ethics of the design industry and its responsibility to humanity, the economy, and the environment.

Adbusters is keen to express, through this workshop, theoretical and actionable skills inspired by the themes of expectations (and the value of subverting them), non-linear chronology (structural anarchy), and responsibility. Using the FTF Project, as well as historical and contemporary design revolutions, as examples of small scale resistance with huge impacts, you will be accoutred with the knowledge to culture jam any space. Together, we'll examine the effects of design & visual art - both good and bad - and how it exists in and narrates every facet of our lives. Find out more at abillionpeople.org

The Center for Political Beauty (ZPS) is an assault team that establishes moral beauty, political poetry and human greatness while aiming to preserve humanitarianism. The group's basic understanding is that the legacy of the Holocaust is rendered void by political apathy, the rejection of refugees and cowardice. It believes that Germany should not only learn from its History but also take action. For their part in the session, ZPS representatives Gabriela Langholf and Lotta Dorte will work with the group to form new ways to put humanistic ideals into action, looking at the ZPS's past works and intellectual foundations, then taking the results forward to create new concepts and help participants bring their own ideas into action.

Share

Category:

Country:

AADK Spain invites all artists and researchers who wish to work on the topics of body, territory and spatiality to participate in its Artistic Residency Program. For this call, projects that respond to  the landscape will be prioritised. The Programme is carried out in Centro Negra, current headquarters of AADK Spain, located in the town of Blanca, Murcia. It is conceived of as a space for reflection and creative research that encourages its participants to interweave their projects with the historical, cultural and geographical context of the region. 

AADK advocates for the decentralisation of culture and access to contemporary art in non-urban areas. It addresses local issues as a means to understand global problems. Currently based in Centro Negra (Blanca, Murcia) AADK Spain holds several programmes among which its Artistic Residency Program is foremost. Deeply rooted in its context, this programme constitutes a framework for research and debate where knowledge exchange and creative collaboration are always encouraged. Throughout the year the platform also holds a wide variety of activities, workshops and events. Furthermore, AADK Spain creates networks with other cultural and artistic enterprises in order to facilitate mobility for the artists that it hosts and foster their work at a national and international level.

At Centro Negra you will find support at every level of your project from AADK. The conditions of the stay and the access to equipment and materials can be discussed individually either remotely or during your stay. AADK Spain invests 850€ (a 60%) per resident in the residency program, and the Municipality of Blanca supports with the accommodation. The artists need to cover:

650€ per month (40% of total costs). If the resident works collectively there is an extra cost of 100€ per month per person, only if working on the same project, and sharing the studio and accommodation.
