In War/At War: The Practice of Everyday
12 E. Washington St.
October 5 - 29:
War affects the daily life of all societies, cultures, families and individuals. The result is a climate of war, including the physical, economic, and psychological conditions created by the direct and indirect connection to this kind of violent conflict. We (in the broadest sense) generate and define the everyday, all becoming participants that shape perceptions of daily experience. In War our adjustments to everyday practices and daily life can reflect its radical climate, pointing to the nature of conflict and ones relationship to experience. We adapt, These adaptations vary depending on personal experiences and define one's relationship to war and inform one's everyday life.
In War/At War: The Practice of Everyday is an exhibition and series of events that investigates variations on everyday practices, projects, and tactics explored by individuals whom cope, adapt and adjust to War and the climate it produces.
At the heart of In War/At War: The Practice of Everyday is an exhibition at OPENSOURCE Art that explores how individuals cope, adapt, or adjust to War and the climate it generates. OPENSOURCE Art seeks submissions from mothers, fathers, siblings, families, soldiers, veterans, civilians, refugees, activists, community groups, volunteers, artists, and all people who are reflecting on the climate of war. Submissions may take any form and can be, but are not limited to, a series of letters, recorded stories, journal entries, art works, series of news clippings, mapping projects, inventories, lists, music, poems, etc.. It should be clear how this submission is an individual reflection on the climate of war.
