Discussions lead and moderated by Émilie Renard with the participation of Antonio Cataldo

This second meeting, adopt a social, economic, and historical perspective as a way to map and deconstruct the structural and material conditions that give rise to unequal institutional practices. Are considered multiple approaches to organising the cultural sector that are situated at the crossroads of feminist, post-colonial, queer, and intersectional thinking.

Art education and social reproduction

Sepake Angiama & Vanessa Desclaux

Within the field of art, how can mediation and educational actions create interstitial spaces that act as social interfaces? How do these intermediate spaces allow for other ways of being together than those permitted by the spaces where artworks are typically presented? Within an institutional framework, what margins can be opened by educational programming to specific forms of creation? How can these programmes enable art institutions to establish themselves locally and sustainably, and thus resonate with their own context?

Experimenting Opacity within a need for Transparency

Marthe Ramm Fortun & Dora García

What about transparency? Do we always have transparent and honest discussions about work conditions in what's known to be an unregulated art world? Does transparency of institutions (budget, material conditions, management) guarantee more balanced power relations (between artists, students, teams, boards, and the publics)? Or is transparency a tool of control when one needs a certain intimacy and opacity to build safe places and avoid forms of censorship? What about trust, intimacy, and opacity?
