PROJECT: (dis)Corporate Bodies
(Undermining the Institution)

Introduction

The Unstitute is offering an opportunity for practitioners to contribute towards a radical new form of interactive archive which aims to subvert the notion of 'The Institution'.

Proposal

The Unstitute proposes to forge new connections in anti-establishment thought and practise in its new interactive archive: [dis]Corporate Bodies. Individuals and groups are invited to create new works or select existing works which respond to the theme 'Under-Mining the Institution' - an activity which could involve plans, excavations, extractions, subversions, criticisms - by selecting an institution and actively mining the fabric upon which its 'institutional' structure rests. This could take the form of creating a subversive 'clone' of the target institution, a direct attack against an institution, an institutional satire or critique - the brief is only limited by the imagination and interest of the participants. Works can be of any kind - photographs, drawings, texts, plans, maps, audio, videos, diagrams, stories, games - so long as they can be presented in a HTML webpage.

Upon receipt of these responses to the brief, archivists at The Unstitute will piece-together these deterritorialised fragments into an interactive labyrinth which can be navigated and explored by visitors, deep in the underground recesses of The Unstitute's burrow-like structure.

How to apply

To take part in this experiment, please send a brief description of how your work responds to the brief and send works/links to works to theunstitute@gmail.com. This is an ongoing open call with no closing date, and applicants may submit as many works as they wish. The selection criteria will be defined by your contributions, and will only come into being as the archive develops. If selected, your contribution will be credited and will form part of a rhizomatic structure embedded inside The Unstitute and promoted as part of our ongoing activity.

The Unstitute offers no financial support to contributors. The edifice exists only in temporary, dynamic structures which cluster, shift and concentrate according to the drive of contributors to experiment with establishment ideas. It exists as a defensive stronghold within the Internet.
