Ongoing call for project partners
AGM accepts now proposals for future editions of its annual, international symposium, an itinerant and ‘expanded’ form of gathering that may include debate, exhibition, screening, performance and other formats.
Proposals from host organisations or project partners can be sent to email@example.com
Please include contact details, and an outline or relevance for collaboration. Further information can be seen on our website: http://www.agmculture.org
AGM is a curatorial project with some of the inbuilt features of a parasite. Each time, by changing partner, location, form and content, its primary focus is to explore the peculiarity of the hosting body – be it a site, an institution or a theme.
Through the creation of encounters and cultural exchange, AGM promotes the development of a network of cultural centres working around Europe. Our goal is to create and consolidate international collaboration, foster knowledge exchange and support international mobility of cultural workers, theorists and artists.
AGM is orchestrated by Hannah Conroy (UK), Iben Bentzen (Denmark), Yesomi Umolu (UK) and Alfredo Cramerotti (UK/Italy). Recent projects included the ongoing Conversation Series symposia, which provide an open forum for sharing and exchange with no underlying pretext but to consider the current state of affairs at various moments in the lead up to the exhibition or research process. Also, the collective presented AGM 10:Collectivus CPS, at Manifesta 8, Spain (2010) which sought to explore the collective process as emphasised in the selection of three collectives to curate the biennale this time around.
This year sees the beginning of a three year project AGM_Loci, which will facilitate public events that seek to encourage international collaboration and foster knowledge exchange between artist and theorists across Europe. Starting in 2011, curators and artists from Manifatture Knos, Lecce, Italy; One Thoresby Street, Nottingham, UK; Walden Affairs, Den Haag, Holland; Künstlerhaus Büchsenhausen, Innsbruck, Austria will initiate a dialogue to generate a public agenda and ignite discussions on the issue of shared memory of urban spaces.
Every AGM Culture edition poses a series of questions challenging pre-conceived ideas of the hosting body and the relative cultural productions taking place in/through that environment.
