Practicable

Practicable is a programme that brings to the fore, materializes or even somatizes some of Hangar’s backbone principles and lines of action.

The first one is the will to widen what is usually understood as “research”, and more particularly, to pay attention to research forms in which, in a peculiarly radical manner, practice is not the applied consequence of previous research, but rather the mode and the condition to bring research forward. Practicable gathers processes in which investigation takes place as practice, through practice, even at risk of setting oneself in motion without prefigurations, without any previous plan and without aiming at results. There is in this kind of procedures a kind of gap between doing and understanding the directionality of what is being done. It is often only later, with a certain distance, après coup, when it becomes possible to apprehend the consistency of a process that went through a sort of momentary blindness.

The second core issue is the one expressed by the suffix “-able”. Connecting artistic practices with Hangar’s historical bond with free software and open source, Practicable focuses on artists and methodologies that open their code; that include such an openness in its becoming -be it in parallel or after- to be practicable, replicable or versionable by others.

Practicable will include different formats, from a one-off presentation to longer and more ramified engagements in response to what each invitation and moment might require. The programme intends to stand at the fold between visual arts and performance context. And more generally, as it is the case for Hangar as a whole, Practicable, looks after a zone of creation that takes place – or struggles to find its place- at the intersection with many others. Ultimately, with each intervention, a sense of cohesion and a way of naming and locating those practices -not as an intersection but rather as a space on their own-will progressively be brought about.
