We are a collective of six artists and researchers collaborating to create an infrastructure that facilitates anti-extractivist, collective and embodied study.
Our project is motivated by the desire to build a commons of artistic collaboration and pedagogical practice that incorporates care, vulnerable communication, play and self-reflection.
In July 2023, we are hosting a residential study week—Field of Study— for eleven participants at The Mirror Institution in Öland, Sweden. The programme’s focus is on de-individualizing artistic practice through peer learning methodologies. It seeks to move away from competitive and extractivist modes of artistic study and production. Instead, the programme seeks to research models that create space for artists to share resources.
The week will include peer-led workshops engaging with improvisational scores, social dreaming, mobilizing theory, documentation practices and renegotiating our connection to the land. We will additionally host screenings of works by Ane Hjort Guttu and Agus Nur Amal PM TOH.
On the 9th of July, we welcome visitors from the public to join us, within the framework of the Småland Triennial 2023.
