This Historical Moment

*Please note this page is under construction and further information will follow shortly

 

 

 

Neoliberalism has destroyed what exists leaving a blank, a clearing, a new space.

In a sense we can say we have entered a moment where it is possible to re-imagine art again for the 1st time in 200 years

How do we meet this challenge?

We can pose the question another way “If you were offered the opportunity to shape art and thinking would you take up the challenge?”

Is it possible to coordinate a situation where cultures and peoples meet to exchange ideas to contest existing thinking and positions to reshape  centres of cultural power?

 

This opening is where art and thinking starts again

 

 

 

 

This is stage one in developing a project, whose extent and breadth will develop and become apparent over time.

 

What are the issues that require to be looked at, who is interested in engaging and exchanging ideas and what form should this exchange take?

How do we translate these ideas into a way of living for a place and setting for experimental living?
