Experimental Publishing and Archival Research
Instructor: Bik Van der Pol
TA: Angel Chen
Conceiving the world around us as a dynamic living archive, this workshop aims to explore and map forms, strategies, and practices that investigate whether, where, and how art can produce a public sphere or a space of collectivity. We will critically and constructively review what “archives” are: how and by whom they are formed and made accessible, what is kept and what is left out, how information is disseminated, and how outcomes of time- and research-based practices may contribute to defining art in a new way, aided by cross-fertilization and collaborations with other fields.
