Practice and Power

A major transnational event exploring questions of negotiation, exchange and representation in contemporary collaborative arts practice.

Artists across the world are engaging with diverse constituencies to develop projects that seek to influence and expand the possibilities for greater participation and agency across artistic, cultural and socio-political spheres. Practice and Power will consider this paradigm shift towards collaborative processes and methodologies within the arts. Influenced by globalisation, emerging communication tools and the changing geopolitical landscape over CAPP’s four year arc, Practice and Power will critically engage with questions of negotiation, power and representation in collaborative art practice. An international community of artists, participants, community activists thinkers, policy makers and programmers will gather in Dublin for this major event, which is the culmination of a series of public Staging Posts held at key points across the CAPP partner network over 2017/2018. In addition to workshops, discussion events, and networking opportunities Practice and Power will showcase a selection of CAPP projects, share learnings from the CAPP research process and launch the CAPP project publication. Practice and Power marks the final and most significant dissemination moment for CAPP.

With For About: Making a Meal of It

The Collaborative Arts Partnership Programme (CAPP) is an ambitious transnational cultural programme focusing on the dynamic area of collaborative arts. The overall goal of CAPP is to improve and open up opportunities for artists who are working collaboratively across Europe, by enhancing mobility and exchange whilst at the same time engaging new publics and audiences for collaborative practices.

Heart of Glass hosts the fifth CAPP Staging Post titled With For About: Making a Meal of It. This Staging Post aims to create a space to discuss and reflect on the fierce and urgent questions facing collaborative and social art today, and more broadly reflect on the role of art and artists in civil society, and the nature and potential of collaborative art with and within community and social contexts.

In With For About: Making a Meal of It, our collective task is to produce a dinner course, present it in a meaningful way; document the process and the event; contribute to discussion; submit a page for publication.

Participants will explore the principles of collaboration through doing, and over the course of a day forge relationships, making a meal and creating meaning in the process. Reflections on this collective experience and knowledge would be shared with the wider sector.

Work in Process

The Collaborative Arts Partnership Programme (CAPP) is an ambitious transnational cultural programme focusing on the dynamic area of collaborative arts. The overall goal of CAPP is to improve and open up opportunities for artists who are working collaboratively across Europe, by enhancing mobility and exchange whilst at the same time engaging new publics and audiences for collaborative practices.

Work in Process, our first Staging Post in 2018, hosted by hablarenarte. It facilitates a meeting between national and international agents working with and through collaborative practices. Work in Process seeks to broaden perspectives and create a space for exchange on collaborative practices from a multidisciplinary viewpoint, surpassing the boundaries between artistic, technological, scientific and social practices.

Work in Process combines workshops, excursions, an exhibition, the presentation of a publication and public talks. All of these activities explore two issues of marked relevance in the field of collaborative practices from two perspectives:

  • How can a collaborative process be communicated to an audience that has not participated in it and is unfamiliar with the subject matter?
  • Are there methodologies capable of scaling processual experiences in order to emulate the same processes in different environments and circumstances?

The activities of Work in Process are designed for people who, by profession or affinity, are attracted to the notion of collaboration.

The Collaborative Arts Partnership Programme (CAPP) is an ambitious transnational cultural programme focusing on the dynamic area of collaborative arts. The overall goal of CAPP is to improve and open up opportunities for artists who are working collaboratively across Europe, by enhancing mobility and exchange whilst at the same time engaging new publics and audiences for collaborative practices.

The third Staging Post will focus on challenges and adventures related to the question of communication and language in collaborative practice. In the field of collaborative arts practices, where the relational is key, establishing understandings through a common verbal language is not a given. Communication requires ongoing attention and due diligence as well as empathy, patience, personal endurance and courage. In Trans-European projects such as CAPP, but also as a result of global mass-migratory movements, and increasingly in everyday situations, communication and language are critical questions.

This Staging Post will take place on the premises of Kunsthalle Osnabrück, which at that time will have two different exhibitions on view: A double installation by Swiss artist Felice Varini and the outcome of CAPP artist Roxy in the Box’s intervention “in and out” in the Rosenplatz District and at Kunsthalle Osnabrück.

Daniel Oliver (CAPP artist, London)

Shades of Agency

The Collaborative Arts Partnership Programme (CAPP) is an ambitious transnational cultural programme focusing on the dynamic area of collaborative arts.  Shades of Agency is the second CAPP Staging Post, hosted by M-cult.

Collaborative, socially engaged arts redistribute the agency of art-making among artists, participants and institutional contexts.  In this event we will address the complex negotiations involved in the production and presentation of collaborative projects.

What types of roles are framed for the participants of collaborative projects?  What is the nature and degree of influence they can exert on the process?  How do museums, galleries and other institutions affect the projects they commission?  What kinds of social practices and contracts should guide the collective authorship, and how to respond to potential conflicts of interest?  How should the artist navigate the contexts and affects involved in the creation of a collaborative piece?

The event format is a ‘cafe discussion’ with short provocations from invited speakers and screenings.  Join the event and share your experience with our 40 international guests from CAPP network.

Speakers:
Michael Birchall (Curator and Researcher, Tate Liverpool and Liverpool John Moores University)
Heidi Tikka (Artist and Researcher, M-cult and Aalto University)
Eila Hämäläinen (Arts & Crafts Pedagogue, Maunula)
Tellervo Kalleinen (Artist, YKON)

Screening of work:
Valentina Karga – Our Coming Community, 2017 (10 mins)
Riikka Kuoppala & Thomas Martin – Maunula, 2017 (27 mins)

Moderators:

Practice, Participation, Politics

Practice, Participation, Politics gathering was the first of a series of CAPP Staging Posts, held in Live Art Development Agency, London. It offered a forum for reflection on the CAPP residencies which have taken place across the partner countries throughout 2016 and an opportunity to discuss wider issues in relation to artists’ collaborations, public engagement, participation, and social responsibility.

An afternoon of artists’ presentations and additional debates provoked by guest speakers was followed by an evening launch of LADA’s Residency Study Guides and a Long Table discussion, facilitated by Lois Weaver, that aimed to foster conversations and exchange of ideas on social practice, politics and activism. The event also encouraged debate on urgent questions of language, solidarity and what’s at stake in this time of change and uncertainty.

Contributors representing the partners’ CAPP residencies to date included Lois Weaver, Sibylle Peters, Elena Marchevska, Kelly Green, Patrick Fox, Chrissie Tiller, Ailbhe Murphy, Christopher Kline, Viviana Checchia (CCA Glasgow), Orekari, Dafna Maimon, Anna Cutler (Tate Exchange), Selina Thompson, Miklós Tömör, and Juli Reinartz.

The gathering took place within the broader context of LADA’s CAPP residency programme, investigating issues of Live Art and Privilege and generating case studies and methodologies for working with the young, the old, the displaced and those excluded for reasons of class.

Also that evening PRAXIS Vol 1: Of People, Place & Time, a new publication from Heart of Glass (St. Helens) was launched. “Volume 1 of ‘Praxis’ is an invitation to a conversation. A conversation about community, engagement, collaboration and co-creation. A conversation about art and place and who gets to make art and where it gets made.

Taking two years of projects and initiatives by Heart of Glass; as its starting point, it explores the interface between theory and practice. And tries to uncover the possibilities contained in, what Grant Kester calls, ‘the spaces between’.

With contributions by:
Patrick Fox, Chrissie Tiller, Grant Kester, Ailbhe Murphy, Vaari Claffey, Mary Paterson, Michelle Wren, Jude Woods, Prof. Lynn Froggett and Dr. Alastair Roy
