New text on Curating degree zero in OnCurating issue 26
The archive of curating degree zero is open to the public at the Media and Information Centre (MIZ) at the Zürich University of the Arts (ZHdK).
Curating Degree Zero Archive
The Curating Degree Zero Archive (CDZA) documents the work of over 100 contemporary art curators who are known internationally for their critical and experimental positions. This collection of exhibition documentation, gifted to the archivists by the curators themselves, contains, among other materials, catalogues, DVDs, magazines and ephemera. In this way the archive presents a representative cross-section of the critical curatorial discourse at the beginning of the 21st Century.
The project began with the three-day symposium ‘Curating Degree Zero’, organized in Bremen in 1998 by Dorothee Richter and Barnaby Drabble. Between 2003 and 2008 the two curators worked together again on the Archive, which grew in size as it travelles to 18 venues around the world as an exhibition and program of live events and public discussions.
In 2011, the resulting collection was gifted to the Media and Information Centre (MIZ) at the Zürich University of the Arts (ZHdK). Since the opening of the University’s new premises in the Toni-Areal in 2014, the archive ist accessible as a permanent refernce collection in the lower floor of the MIZ.
The entire contents of the CDZA are listed in the NEBIS Catalogue, and material that, due to conservation issues, cannot be accessed directly in the reference section can be ordered for viewing through the NEBIS catalogue. Several unedited video recordings are listed in the eMuseum and can also be requested for viewing in the MIZ archive.
Further information about the archive and the touring exhibition can be found on the former CDZA website which is documented in the Arts Media Archive (Medienarchiv der Künste).

“In a technical sense the project is looking at the erosion of thinking and art under the regime of Neo-Liberalism primarily through the prism of Post Autonomy, which I no longer understand as a theory but a means to record the erosion and loss of the attributes of art and thinking leading to this historical moment – so the work is a meditation on this. It also poses a provocation if art is truly free which aspects of society is art capable of interrogating, and making transparent, which leads onto locating images for Colonialism and Globalisation, then ideas for reinventing a new institutional critical practice. But central to the work has to be how to break colonial behaviour, actions and thinking, but foremost what is art able to say today, are we able to say anything?” In many respects’s the pooling together of these fragments can be seen as a path to reimagining an Enlightenment.

Celebrating 25 years of Existence of the Art colony Galichnik
In collaboration with Skopje Summer Festival (Скопско лето)
Art Colony Galicnik from the very beginning in 1990 has been following the current developments in visual arts with participation of Macedonian and above all international artists where in the ambient of the western part of Macedonia, in the Reka region, works of art are created that remain as Macedonian cultural heritage and artistic treasure. One of the characteristics of Galicnik Art Colony is that it continuously follows the current happenings in art, especially the art of new visual practices emerging in the last ten years, and is one of the few in the region and beyond where artists work in non-traditional artistic mediums i.e. they work in the so-called new media art, so it can rightly be said that this colony can carry the title multimedia art center.
The joining of the artists is well known from the period of impressionism and painting in the open – plein-air, which can be said is the precursor of the organization of the today’s art colonies. The term colony in the past (and even today in some parts of the world) is/was a gathering of people outside their territory, as a means of spreading the power of the imperialist countries… The power of the international art colonies consists of joining of artists from different parts of the world and creation of artistic and utopian state in time without political or provisional authority, governed by the ideology of creativity, where opinions, theories, work and experiences in the field of visual arts are exchanged and disseminated. Seen from a historical, geopolitical and socio-cultural aspect, Galicnik Art Colony as a projection of the authoritarian rule of the concepts and the ideas of and about art is experiencing the need for anesthetizing the world around us, which is imperative to art. The colonization of art in this regard is beneficial in our society making this art colony or workshop one of the most important socio-cultural phenomena present in Macedonia, the region and beyond.
During the last three years in Galicnik have created young artists from Macedonia (Ana Lazarevska, Dijana Bogdanovska, Ines Efremova, Ilina Cholak…), from the region; Europe and the rest of the world (Chrissie Burrows, Dilyana Stoimenova, Duygu Sezgin, Irmak Donmez, Jeton Muja, Maureen Bachaus, Pavel Pavelka, Uros Djuric etc.) in various media: conceptual photography, digital art, video, performance, comic book… where artists guided by their conceptual vocation have left works which enrich the fund and the production of works of art of the contemporary visual artistic expression in Macedonia.
The group show Dispositions in Timer and Space has now been extended until June.

“Revolution and Heresy”
“Since I will be discussing, throughout this text, the term Post Autonomy [I will use the abbreviation PA for Post Autonomy], which is probably unfamiliar to many peo- ple, I need to provide a basic genealogy and definition. At this point, all I want to say is that the term was invented in the 1970s in response to Barthes’ ”The Death of the Author” and revived in the 1990s as an alternative term for and critique of Post Modernism. Several authors inter- pret the term Post Autonomy to signal “after art”, or “the end” or “completion of Autonomy”.”

Banner Repeater and Hackney Archives
invite you to a
Borough of Hackney Artists’ Publishing exhibition.
opening night: Thursday 5th Feb 6-8pm until April 25th
Please join us for Activating the Archive: an exhibition of Artists’ Publishing in the borough of Hackney, at Hackney Archives on Thursday 5th February from 6-8pm.
Banner Repeater has been working with Hackney Archives to promote the richness of Artists’ publishing across the borough. The project aims to provide a temporary platform to raise the visibility of publishing as an art form, and is part of a broader aim to introduce Artists’ Publishing within the network of Hackney Libraries.
Hackney Archives is the recognised repository for the Borough history and its research. This service preserves the Borough’s historic records and makes them accessible for people to research and learn from. Hackney Archives also collects and records information relating to past and current activity in the borough. Activating the Archive has provided Hackney Archives with the opportunity to identify local, contemporary work with a view of adding this work into the archives and to ensure its contribution to the Borough’s creative heritage.
The Activating the Archive exhibition opens on Thursday 5th February at Hackney Archives, with a launch event from 6pm until 8pm. The exhibition features works from local artists. The exhibition is accessible during the public opening hours of Hackney Archives, located on the second floor of CLR James Library, Dalston. Many of the works can be handled to allow the visitor to explore this medium at its best. The works collectively go some way in representing a broad range of artistic practices that engage with the publishing process, including Artists, Artist-led groups, collectives, and independent publishers working with Artists.
The exhibition will be on display from 5th February until April 25th (please note there is a scheduled period of closure at Hackney Archives between February 14th until the 2nd March).
Supported by Arts Council England.
The exhibition has been extended to May
