Hackpad Event: (play)ground - less / Luli Perez / Jane Frances Dunlop & Mira Loew

What does it mean to be an artist in today’s digital and nomadic world?

Who forms our community when we exist inside a global network?

Where do we find the local when we are constantly on the move?

What does it mean to inhabit the temporary?

Itinerant Assembly interrogates these questions through a five-month programme of events which investigate the productive potential of temporary togetherness. The series of assemblies, which began in January this year, culminates in two final events this May: a new commission by emerging international artist group (play)ground - less, and a hackpad event based around a conversation between international participants, which will take place on an online collaborative document that can be updated in real time.
