The End of Something.. A collection of reflections on the Global Crisis

* If the World came to an end how would you imagine picking up the pieces and starting over?
* What is the best thing about having less work, less money and more time? How would you best spend your (Free) time?

The End of Something is a critical archival project that aims to create a platform for participation to engage a local and International community to respond to recent shifts in the economy and the World. During Summer 2009, LOUDSPKR in collaboration with Volume will embark on a process of accumulation to collect personal and creative reflections, stories and experiences on the global crisis. Located in the former ‘archive room’ of a police station, Volume will become once again a bureau and repository for information. Materials will be displayed within the space, as well as online in a digital archive. Through a series of talks and events, the contents of the archive will be excavated, analyzed and interpreted. The End of Something aims to bring together a multitude of ideas, to approach a collective understanding of the present and to configure new possibilities for the future.

We are open for contribution for:
1. Personal reflections/stories (or responses to the above questions)
2. Web links to articles/texts, documents/publications/press releases/statements for film/artworks or events/exhibitions/conferences on the global crisis

All submissions will be uploaded to online and exhibited at Volume during August 2009. The End of Something is a non-profit independent initiative. If you are submitting any personal creative content, please specify if you have any terms of usage or creative license you would like to apply. i.e. Creative Commons
