Alfredo Cramerotti – Curating oneself. An exploration on curating and ‘the curatorial’ beyond exhibition-making. 

Friday 23 May 2014

Wysing Arts Centre

Bourn, Cambridge, CB23 2TX, UK

In light of increasing connectivity and the pressure of a transforming environment, this retreat, entitled Of Our Own Making, will address the question ‘how do we want to live together?’ The retreat curators are MA students Jennifer KY Lam, Marenka Krasomil, Olivia Leahy, and Sophie Oxenbridge-Hastie.

Across five immersive days a programme of invited speakers and group activities will offer possible interpretations of this question, endeavouring to address its social, environmental and metaphysical implications.

Commencing the retreat, artist Cally Spooner will lead a workshop session and host presentations and discussions by participants on their work. On the following days, Anthony Davies and Jaya Klara Brekke of the MayDay Rooms, a safe house for vulnerable archives and historical material linked to social movements, experimental culture, and marginalised figures, will initiate discussion on current social movements and alternative communities in regards to collaborative ways of living.

Writer, curator, editor and artist Alfredo Cramerotti, director of MOSTYN art gallery, Co-Director, AGM Culture and collective Chamber of Public Secrets, will address the relations between society and the environment, situated within a concept of ecology influenced by the separation of nature and culture. His presentation and open-floor debate will focus on collective curating, Venice pavilions, digital culture, and curating our own future.

Finally, the retreat will examine visionary ideas for the future, with the theoretical and scientific research of English author, theoretician in the field of gerontology and co-founder of the SENS Research Foundation, Aubrey de Grey, on proposed techniques to stop aging. Contributing to this conversation, Richard Noble, lecturer in Fine Art at Goldsmiths College, philosopher and writer, primarily on the intersection of art and politics, will also lead a talk on the politics of utopia in artistic practice.

 

Selected participants for the retreat are: Love Enqvist, Rose Gibbs, Lina Hermsdorf, Gareth Lloyd, Vipash Purichanont, Amy Spencer and Anna Stephens.

TVE Metropolis – Manifesta 8: AGM 10 feat. Comrade Alfredo Neri (excerpt)

(Spanish below)

Special Metropolis TV format from TVE Spain about Manifesta 8 / CPS Chamber of Public Secrets / AGM 10 feat. Comrade Alfredo Neri (2006).

A ‘performative documentary’ about Alfredo Neri, the spokesman of the Italian neo-nazi movement Skinheads. The work was presented in Manifesta 8 by AGM 10 which selected a number of archive pieces from CPS archive.

A powerful analysis of the media construction, representation and mediation of facts, identities and historical narratives through the documentary language.
