This years’ programme will explore the Anthropocene
through storytelling and aims to wreak havoc on our
(mis)-conceptions of the natural world.
FOREST RANGERSREADING GROUP
HOSTED BY JUPITER WOODS
4th October 6.30-8pm
For this second session exploring alternative art spaces as common resources, join us in the garden of Jupiter Woods with curator Katie Simpson as we discuss producing publics and the relation between the art public and the counter public. All reading material will be provided on site and texts can also be found here: https://drive.google.com/open?....
This event will take place as part of Art Licks Peripheries, exploring how grassroots spaces and projects actively situate themselves on the edges of the art market. The aim is to discuss new structures as ways of establishing alternative creative working systems and new possibilities of access.
Diaspore is pleased to announce a new collaboration with Jupiter Woods, presenting Forest Rangers, a new reading group exploring the current state of the commons and their possible future. With a particular focus discussing the state of alternative art spaces, natural resources, education, open source economics and outer space colonialism, we hope to establish a comprehensible set of understandings and goals to nurture our common resources. Each group will be lead by a researcher in order to spark conversation and prompt ideas inviting participantsto share their experiences and thoughts.
The project will be hosted at Jupiter Woods for its entire duration, culminating in the recording of 5 podcasts and a live event in 2019.
