PERFORMING INTERSTICES. READING AS WRITING FORWARD
Workshop
Reading Room #28 at Stroom, The Hague (NL)
With: Joana Chicau
Exploring the text not as a static entity but as a provocation to perception that offers its possibilities as an event inviting potentially indeterminate acts of intervention. By applying choreographic protocols denominating a shared writing and reading space, the workshop explores  how we are provoked physically and cognitively into reading and response (and thus into contributing to the creation of the text).

POST_DIGITAL PUBLISHING
Collective reading,
Reading Room #27 at Stroom, The Hague (NL)
With: Florian Cramer, Alessandro Ludovico, Joana Chicau
Exploring the notion of publishing in relation to what can be called the "post-digital," a term that aims to describe a contemporary condition, in which distinctions of "old" and "new media" have become obsolete, and where any publishing practice is being acknowledge as a material practice. Materiality is no longer understood as a mere physical property but as something that is inherently political, an emergence that may occur between textual content, its manifestation as an artifact, the economies and practices, as well as the non-human and human agents determining a publication’s production and consumption. We will ask how is artistic practice, understood in a broad sense as a gesture of ‘going public’, affected by this? What strategies, formats and notions of authorship and public may emerge from this new sensibility?

PUBLISHING ACTS II

Workshop and publication
With Istrian Architects (DAI-SAI), Šibenik Society of Architects (Soba DAŠ), Future Architecture Platform, Šibenik (HR), dpr-barcelona

The second edition of an investigation on publishing as an urban practice. How can we, by using publishing as a background for collaborations between local architects and participants from abroad and as a device for directing a critical engagement with an urban environment, identify and open possibilities for critical and collaborative reflection, imagination and action?

 

(PUBLISHING)SITES OF FRICTION

Seminar

Institut für Architektur und Städtebau (IAS), UdK, Berlin (DE)
Located in the areas of pedestrian circulation at the UdK, where university and city meet, where intersections manifest and disturbances arise, this publishing exercise aims to explore the meaning and potential of frictions, ambiguities and distortions for critical publishing endeavors. What can these moments, in which the peculiarities of coinciding worlds, perceptions and modes are revealed, and can be brought together for recombination and shared epistemic work, mean within and for publishing? What are the spaces for critical activity, productive publishing strategies, interfaces, formats and publics that could emanate from sites of emergent friction and its potential recombination?

PUBLISHING ACTS
Publication launch and workshop
MAO, Ljubljana (SL)
With Future Architecture Platform and DAI-SAI, Ana Dana Beroš and Emil Jurcan
Publishing Acts is the result of the “temporary editorial office” and publishing experiment held in Pula, Croatia, 1-3 June, 2017, which was designed to produce instant, open-ended socio-political imaginaries about the city. The "Publishing Acts" in Ljubljana, the for the present final act of this site-specific “social choreography”, serves as an occasion to think about possible further developments of the initiative.

PUBLISHING ACTS
Workshop

Future Architecture Platform & Association of Istrian Architects, Pula (HR)

"Publishing Acts" was an experimental publishing workshop and part of an a-festival with the same name. With Ana Dana Beroš, Emil Jurcan, Léopold Lambert (The Funambulist), Fosco Lucarelli and Mariabruna Fabrizi (Microcities), Rebekka Kiesewetter, Sofia Dona (Co-Hab Athens), Mika Savela and Henrik Drufva. Publishing in the Pula experiment was understood and explored the means to inform a process of connecting and re-connecting with the place by reviewing its history and cultural context in a specific and conscious way. The publication, resp. the publishing undertaking, figured in the role of an institutionalizing object conjoining a variety of international and local participants within a common process. From their respective points of view and against the background given by the parameters of the publishing proposition, the participants collaboratively explored the territorial, economical and sociopolitical situation of Pula. The ‘‘foreigners” – informed by their personal practices and perceptions – through the exchange with their hosts were not bound to adopt a touristic and external view, yet remained far from an insiders’ perspective. The locals, on the other hand, re-encountered their city through the amateurish eyes of experts from abroad. The connectedness within this discursive process of negotiation evolving within and dealing with a concrete territory required the participants of the Pula workshop to shift from their usual perspectives and adopt a kind of in-between-position. This in between –  awareness meeting naïveté, experiences interspersed with impressions, perceived realities mixed with playful speculation ­– was the interface, the common base for mutual understanding.
