KnowledgeLab9:Art / 5th - 7th October / Institute for Advanced Studies, Lancaster University, UK

KnowledgeLab9:Art - Technology, Authorship, Ways of Living and Art Market
5th - 7th October, 2007
Institute for Advanced Studies, Lancaster University, North West England.

We welcome you to attend the Knowledgelab9:Art, a weekend gathering for collaborative and creative reflection. If you are unable to attend the whole weekend or are particularly interested in a single presentation then please come along to individual events.

For further information on locations, attendance conditions, details on participators, please refer to the wiki:
we are updating it regularly.
This knowledge lab will address art and ways of critically thinking about our world. Within this broad region of enquiry, the lab will encompass notions of life and art as a political commitment, the influence art can exert in politics and how political ideas in turn influence art. It will also address new ways of making art and how this relates to technologies and social changes, and the use of art as an anti-capitalist means to change and fight the system.
Like previous knowledge labs the day will be divided into four streams.

TECHNOLOGY In this stream the discussion will centre around free software, DIY, art spaces and interfaces.
WAYS OF LIVING This stream concerns process, moment, Artivism and performance.
AUTHORSHIP This stream will consider copy rights, ownership, patenting, and appropriation.
THE ART MARKET The fourth stream is intended to raise issues concerning(new ways of) curating, spaces (physical and virtual) to show art, and ways of making money: Marketing, the means of production, market forces and anti-market forces, the art market, and art and ethics.
