I was invited by Joasia Krysa, Director of the Kunsthal Aarhus to contribute to the programme of events The Perfect Institution: Culture 2017
11th December: Public talk: 1-2pm. I made a presentation, taking Self Portrait: Arnolfini and V&A bicentenial as speculative case studies, I performed a live-thread recall to imagine the bicentenary celebrations.
Closed Workshop Session (booking required): 3-6pm. I participated in a workshop where we collectively imagined possible futures for the Kunsthal Aarhus, and the culture in which it is situated. The workshop developed through conversation, speculation, post-it affinity maps, and time-line drawing to performatively inhabit 2067. We then tried to work out how to get there.
The Perfect Institution is a series of events to produce a step-by-step guide, to construct a future art institution. An institution that responds to uncertain cultural, social and economic conditions. The aim, is not merely to adapt to change, but to shape those changes.
