Alfredo Cramerotti will give a presentation of MOSTYN’s institutional approach for curating at the International Curatorial Workshop “Curating and Social Change” organised by the University of Zurich in partnership with Connecting Space Hong Kong, Bootes Ltd, and the Postgraduate Programme in Curating, Center of Further Education, Zurich University of the Arts. The talk will focus on the work done in MOSTYN for the audience development initiative – the History Series.  The starting point was an exploration of the connections between contemporary art and the history of the building and of the town of Llandudno; turning the usual curatorial process of creating exhibitions on its head, MOSTYN invited its audience to actively provide their stories behind the former uses of the building and its changing status over the course of the 20th Century. The aim of the project was not to come out with exhibitions and educational programmes that were “good for them” but to actually listen to the local environment and then create exhibitions and learning activities with in-built social relevance through the work of contemporary artists.

The overall focus of the visit to Hong Kong is on how arts can create social impact / social change, using findings and insights gathered from meetings the local institutions and their relevant counterparts:
– Mapping the current curatorial practices in the UK compared to what one can observe from meetings and visits in Hong Kong
– Opportunities and challenges in Hong Kong in relation to applying contemporary arts to achieve social change / impact
– Evaluation, Measurement and Impact role when making arts and / or sustain social change / impact , both in the UK and in Hong Kong.

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

Posted in nEws and rEleases by alcramer on February 12, 2011

(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.
