Collective condition, a worksession in the framework of the European project Iterations

Collective Conditions will take place from 8 to 16 November at the Mommen Ateliers in Brussels, a workshop organized as part of the European Iterations project.

Collective Conditions experiments with the generative potential of codes of conduct, complaints procedures, bug reports and copyleft licenses. These socio-technical protocols are understood as artistic and activist media and can play a role in the (different) imagination of complex collectivities. The working session proposes different modes of ’writing’ that go beyond typing protocols on a keyboard. Collective Conditions explores codes, rhythms, frequencies, scripts, scores and non-verbal agreements that regulate, challenge, stumble and collide posing questions and problems.

About Iterations

Iterations is a European project committed to the future of artistic collaboration in digital networked contexts. Multidisciplinary artists and professionals come together to create speculative works that feed the imagination of possible forms of artistic collaboration. Through a series of practical residencies and discursive exhibitions, Iterations offers situations in which artists collectively experience new forms of artistic work that generate spaces for collectivity and collaboration.

The project is structured around the conceptual model of “iteration”. Inspired by the recursive forms of collaboration as they exist in the development of open source software, the Iterations project applies the repetition and circularity of artistic methodologies, in which the result of one activity is used as a starting point for the next. In each iteration, a group of artists is invited to develop in residence a collaborative artistic proposal based on one or more of the results of the previous iteration. The last iteration of Iterations took place in Sicily in April 2018 within the framework of Trasformatorio. Prior to the residency in Hangar this November, artists who participated in the iteration in Sicily have met with the artists who have participated in the residency in Barcelona to give them the material that has been one of the starting points of the collaborative work that has been developed in Hangar. The institutions participating in Iteration are Constant (Brussels, Belgium), Esc (Graz, Austria), Trasformatorio (Amsterdam, Holland) and Hangar.
