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 agm@agmculture.org
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.

QUAD Derby, UK & Radiator Biennial Festival of New Media Art Nottingham, UK

The 7th edition of the media/art project AGM (www.agmculture.org) is this year part of the Radiator Biennial Festival and Symposium (www.radiator-festival.org) and includes an exhibition, video installation, performance, music and talk; exploring our behaviour with technologies of surveillance and counter-surveillance in QUAD. From 15th to 25th January 2009, eight international artists, designers, writers and performers respond to the cultural environment generated by CCTV and (self) recording.

On screens throughout QUAD, 15th – 25th January 2009

Artworks by plankton (media collective, Austria), Chris Oakley (videomaker, UK), Miska Knapek (new media designer, Denmark/Sweden), Scott Jon Siegel (game designer, USA), and ZimmerFrei (art collective, Italy).

AGM is an art/media project that happens once a year and changes its form, content and location every time. Previous editions were held in Italy (performance event, 2003), the Netherlands (radio programme, 2004), Canada (sound installations, 2005), Denmark (public screenings, 2006), Austria (symposium, 2007), and the Internet (2008).For previous editions please visit www.agmculture.org. Curated by Iben Bentzen and Alfredo Cramerotti, QUAD Exhibitions Officer.

The fourth Radiator Biennial Festival and Symposium brings together artists with academics, geographers, urban theorists, scientists, sociologists and fellow citizens in the discovery of a new topography of the city, based on the understanding that digital networks are transforming our notion of public and private space. The symposium “Exploits in the Wireless City” at Broadway in Nottingham (http://www.broadway.org.uk) features theorists, architects, journalists, urban planners, and artists’ works. The symposium aims to instigate discussion, debate and new interdisciplinary research networks. Curated by Anette Schäfer and Miles Chalcraft.
