BIENNALIST, THE ACADEMY OF EMERGENCY ART, and PHOTOGRAPHY CALLING! are setting up an action camp to express about Emergencies NOW BEFORE IT IS TOO LATE.
Together we will daily activate Emergency art, Critical Run, Penetrations, Slow Dance Debate, Art Flash Mobs, Photography Calling!, Rumor Art, Debate Raves, Quadridimensional Journalism. Through these different formats we will question WHAT ARE THE EMERGENCIES TODAY?
WHAT MAKES US APATHETIC?
WHY ARE BIENNALES LYING TO US AND HOW?
ARE BIENNALES DANGEROUS?
CAN ART BE IN ADVANCE OF THE BROKEN ARM?
IS THE THEME OF THE VENICE BIENNALE PERTINENT? CAN FREEDOM OF SPEECH BE CURATED?
CAN CRITIC BE SPONSORED?
and other questions that we will be burning to express about, simply not possible to ignore at this specific moment. To join these 6 days of intensive education (May 30–June 4, 2011) you will have to apply to firstname.lastname@example.org or negotiate with us on the spot.
Participants will get a Biennalist diploma if they accomplish the missions and training successfully.
The camp is an Art format by format artist Thierry Geoffroy/Colonel more known for his Emergency Room format and Critical Run format as well as for his Academy of Emergency Art.
Melina Peña and Copyflex will also be active artists in the format as well as some of the artists from the Emergency Room segment coming to the camp.
PHOTOGRAPHY CALLING! is an upcoming exhibition of the Sprengel Museum Hannover in cooperation with the Lower Saxony Savings Bank Foundation. PHOTOGRAPHY CALLING! supports the Biennalist edition at the Venice Biennale 2011 as well as the Thierry Geoffroy/Colonel project space “PHOTOGRAPHY CALLING/ EXTRACTEUR” in the exhibition.
PHOTOGRAPHY CALLING! is curated by Inka Schube, Curator of Photography and Media Art at the Sprengel Museum Hannover, and Thomas Weski, professor of “Curatorial Cultures” at the Academy of Visual Arts in Leipzig.
