Symposium on self-organization within contemporary art.

This symposium will discuss issues pertaining to autonomy, commons, and the relationship between self-organisation and artistic praxis. By focusing on the value and values of self-organisation and the potential of networks, the aim is to create a context for stimulus, methods and tools with opportunities for exchanging experience and knowhow for a wide group of participants. Among the lecturers are Andrea Phillips, Goldsmiths (London), Allison Collins, Western Front (Vancouver) Eric Stone, Common Practice (Los Angeles), Jason Bowman, Mick Wilson and Julie Crawshaw from Akademin Valand (Gothenburg)
