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.

    Serpentine Work Marathon Workshops

    On the occasion of the Serpentine Work Marathon (22 September 2018, 10am-10pm, Royal Geographical Society), on the 23rd September, Prof. Bernard Stiegler convenes a gathering of practitioners from multiple disciplines to contribute to the writing of a new manifesto, the first version of which will be issued on the 23rd September, with the definitive version being sent to the United Nations, in Geneva, on 10 January 2020 – the centenary anniversary of the League of Nations.

    Participants include: Anne Alombert, Sara Baranzoni, David Berry, Divya Dwivedi, Noel Fitzpatrick, Giacomo Gilmozzi, Gaël Giraud, Yuk Hui, Olivier Landau, Giuseppe Longo, Glenn Loughran, Shaj Mohan, Maël Montévil, Gerald Moore, Clément Morlat, Vincent Puig, Daniel Ross, Saskia Sassen, Bernard Stiegler and Alain Supiot.

    The 2018 Work Marathon explores issues including technological developments enabling automation and its impact on labour and work; the political urgencies of coerced and invisible labour and the differentiation between work, employment and labour; and the role of non-human agents, including artificial intelligence, animals and materials, in the context of planetary-scale ecologies. The Work Marathon is conceived in collaboration with Professor Bernard Stiegler and builds on the 2017’s GUEST, GHOST, HOST: MACHINE! Marathon, which focused on artificial intelligence and questions of consciousness.
