Hi everyone,

This Tuesday is the first evening in a year-long series of weekly conversations and exhibits in 2010 focusing on examples of Plausible Artworlds, culminating in an online and printed publication in 2011. Let’s get started!

SKYPE:
Join us every Tuesday night - in person, or on Skype, skypename: ‘basekamp’, send a message to join the chat.

6PM - 8PM EST (East Coast, US time)

This week we’ll be talking with folks from The Public School and AAAARG.ORG. This is a rare opportunity to get people who have been involved in organizing, theorizing, participating in (or newly interested in) these projects to convene online for a couple hours in a public and open setting.

Accompanying this conversation will also be a hands-on public event to officially launch The Public School in Philadelphia, with a history of past “courses”, and plenty of room to propose new ones. Please come and join us!

AAAARG.ORG is an online pirate library integrated with The Public School - initiated by Sean Dockray with Fiona Whitton as a project for TELIC Arts Exchange at the end of 2007. The Public School is a school with no curriculum, located underneath TELIC Arts Exchange. The Public School is an open structure, or maybe a stage, on which ideas about school perform new realities. To put it another way, The Public School is invested in the idea of public space - not in the sense of state-controlled plots of land, but rather in the sense of spaces for the political.

About Plausible Artworlds 2010

Plausible Artworlds is a project to collect and share knowledge about
alternative models of creative practice. From alternative economies to
open source culture and other social experiments, Plausible Artworlds
is a platform for research and participation with artworlds that
present a distinct alternative to mainstream culture.

The potlucks are free and open to the public - anyone can bring a
dish, sit, eat and drink together. The potluck discussions will be
started each week by the invited guests whose collective practice
exemplify “artworlds” that in some substantial way differ from a
prevailing and more broadly accepted “Artworld”. Corresponding
projects will be exhibited at Basekamp in support of these weekly
discussions along with a publication to be compiled at the end of the
year.

We invite artists, educators and community members to join us every
Tuesday night - in person, or on Skype, skypename: ‘basekamp’. If you
come to the potluck in person, be sure to bring a dish :)

“Plausible Artworlds” is a project organized by Basekamp and Stephen
Wright, and has been funded by The Pew Center for Arts & Heritage
through the Philadelphia Exhibitions Initiative.
