Report from the Paragora meeting

On Monday 2 February 2015, about 25 people followed the invitation of Dmitry Kleiner, Baruch Gottlieb and myself to join us for a discussion about Art and Commons based on reflections on my current project Giving What You Don’t Have. The event was part of the new mini media festival Paragora that the two initiated and which was hosted by ThoughtWorks Werkstatt Berlin in a space the company sponsors in order to contribute to the critical exploration of the information economy.

Conversation with Cornelia Sollfrank: If Art Were A Commons

Monday 2 February 2015, 19.00

On the basis of interviews conducted as part of her artistic research project ‘Giving What You Don’t Have’ (GWYDH), Cornelia Sollfrank will introduce and discuss projects whose aim is to contribute to the production and preservation of the commons. Fundamental questions will include the relation between art and the commons, what forms of organisation artists suggest, what values the projects represent, what external economies the projects depend on and, last but not least, what inherent conception of art they express.

Invitation to magazine launch and discussion: Critical net practice – information as reality?

Tonight there will be the presentation of the new issue of 'springerin,' a Vienna-based art and culture magazine. The thematic focus of the issue is on critical net practice (springerin / Band XXI, Heft 1, Winter 2015) and contains, amongst many other thrilling texts, an interview by Felix Stalder with me about the project Giving What You Don't Have. (The interview is in German, but we are planning to provide an English translation for this website as soon as possible).

The event will be hosted by Marina Gržinić (Ljubljana), Zoran Pantelić (Novi Sad) and Konrad Becker (Wien) Moderation: Christian Höller, editor and co-publisher of springerin. (And I guess it will be all in German...)

Date: Tuesday, 20 January 2015, 19.00
Venue: MAK-Kaminzimmer, Stubenring 5, 1010 Wien
