ConferenceReshaping the Art World: An Experiment in Collaborative Change-making

Book launch

RESHAPE - A Workbook to Reimagine the Art World

The publication RESHAPE – A Workbook to Reimagine the Art World documents a series of Prototypes designed by the RESHAPE community of artists and art workers. These prototypes function as proposals reflecting and inciting the transition of the sector towards more equitable and more sustainable ways of working. The prototypes engage in dialogue with a number of existing, reworked, and commissioned works selected by the RESHAPE community: the Zeitgeist material. The authors – including artists, scholars, and critical thinkers – analyse and contextualise current challenges, thus outlining the spirit of our times that informs and inspires the prototypes. The experimental process of RESHAPE is described in the introduction and in a conversation with six facilitators who accompanied the various groups as they worked on the prototypes.

Members of the RESHAPE community will present the book in a conversation with Ivana Pejić, editor-in-chief of the independent culture magazine, where they will discuss the prototype design process and hopefully inspire you to delve deeper into the material. Hard copies of the book will be available at the launch event.

Milica Ilić, project coordinator and co-editor of the book, ONDA
Marijana Rimanić, project communications manager and co-editor of the book, Pogon
Ingrid Vranken, Reshaper, co-author of the prototype "Transnational and Postnational Practices Manual"

Moderated by Ivana Pejić, editor-in-chief of the independent culture magazine

Marko Bulc: First Altruistic Performance

The First Altruistic Performance isbased on the author’s frustration and dissatisfaction with most of the so‑called artivistic projects (including his own), which exploit unfortunate, unjust, illegal, and similar miserable situations of the other and the others for self‑promotion and to strengthen their artistic ego, while being for the most part self‑sufficiently confined within the boundaries of the art system.
