Workshop mentors: Domènec and Tadej Poga?ar

7?12.05.2012 Muzej sodobne umetnosti Metelkova – MSUM, Maistrova 3

The workshop is framed within the exhibition This is not a museum. Mobile devices lurking, curated by Martí Peran and exhibited from 14 May to 17 June at the Slovenian Ethnographic Museum in collaboration with the Moderna galerija / Museum of Modern Art plus Museum of Contemporary Art Metelkova – MSUM, ACVic Centre for Contemporary Arts, P74, AC/?e and the Embassy of Spain in Ljubljana. This exhibition is an exercise of documentation and reflection on the construction of mobile artefacts as elements for an expanded concept of, or as an alternative to, the Museum.

Description of the workshop

Art, Social space and mobile devices consists on an intensive fieldwork where workshop participants will analyse the context of Slovenia, will question the conventional idea of museum as an institution, and reformulate the function of the exhibition display as a nomadic platform nurturing direct and self?managed participation. This research will lead to the design of a series of mobile prototypes. Participants will map public spaces and develop various elements for it, through interaction with the residents and temporary occupation of the space. The results of the workshop will be included to the itinerant exhibition.

Aims of the workshop

• Debate on the analysis of the relationship of mobility and locality as producers of knowledge.

• Observation of how cultural practices can promote a translation of social forces as vectors for a subjective and political transformation.

• Exchange of perspectives among artists and participants

• Construction of prototypes and/or mobile artefacts in Slovenia to introduce them in the itinerant exhibition.

• To combine spatial observation and social research, in order to gain knowledge of aspirations, necessities and shortages in the local context.


Who can participate?

The workshop is open to artists, architects, designers, educators, cultural managers, historians, social workers, and students of sociology, anthropology, art, architecture, design, education…
