OPEN CALL

It was decided in the meeting of 2nd June 2015

BBKP

Status: confirmed
Stall Description: When was the last time you physically developed or printed a photograph? We found this past skill lost in the digitalised world today. BBKP's self-made portable darkroom and photographic workshops, bring techniques to public environments revealing the tools and methods needed to create chemical based photographs. It is not just an recreate a nostalgic past, but this skill is still very interesting, and can be done in a collective way.
Value:

Graham Dunning

Status: Confirmed
Stall Description: Imagine a keycutting kiosk or shoe repair stall, but instead of replacing heels or selling keyrings it produces and sells MUSIC BY THE METRE. At the front is a counter, manned by a chap in a grubby apron (me, the artist). On the counter is a metre ruler, scissors and spools of audio tape that you can listen to on an old reel-to-reel machine, and buy in 1m lengths, bagged up. Behind, in the “workshop”, a machine cobbled together from dusty old audio equipment fills spools of tape with abstract music. If you don’t want your music off the peg, why not bring along a cassette and have a new piece assembled while-you-wait – as the sandwich board out the front says, “bring me a tape and I’ll fill it up!”
Value:

Invited: Judith Lyons and The London Neurodegenerative Diseases Brain Bank

Status: Confirmed
Stall Description: A market-type stall hosted jointly by the London Neurodegenerative Diseases Brain Bank and Lyons as a member of the creative community of the University of the Arts. The stall will promote the importance and value of Brain Donation and would highlight the vital research that is currently going on in this area. Public engagement will be encouraged both through the display of art work and through a variety of accessible craft activities for adults and children. Children will be offered the opportunity to take their “makes” home with them, or to “donate” them to a gallery on the stall. The act of donation would be rewarded by a small token of appreciation.

Value:

ABORT TOURISM

Status: Confirmed
Stall Description: Abortourism is a fictional travel agency. A non­profit creative project. With its slogan “Personal borders Beyond State Borders” it aims to highlight how in certain countries women are not able to exercise their rights for bodily autonomy and human dignity, as their access to reproductive technologies such as contraception and abortion are limited. The particular modes through which reproductive rights and reproductive technologies become curtailed reveals how relations between the state and the citizens are negotiated. The offers of the Abortourism Travel agency compare the different healthcare protocols of different states, to highlight the politics governing the legislation, standardisation and distribution of these technologies.We chose to highlight the phenomena of medical tourism related to reproductive rights, how human dignity and autonomy comes with a price tag.
Value:

Early Lab

Status: Confirmed
Stall Description: For #TransActing the Early Lab will use an economy of promises. In exchange for refreshment, people promise to make a small intervention over the following week. These promises act as a step forward in spreading seeds that begin to combat stigma that is so detrimental to preconceptions about mental health. The Early Lab is concerned with how mental health is spoken about, and how we could better integrate it into our daily lives. By encouraging conversations about emotional wellbeing we can create a culture where we begin to tackle mental health concerns sooner through openness, community collaboration and peer support. Value:

thickear

Status: Confirmed
Stall Description:This contribution will explore a kind of ‘bureau de (ex)change’, where a thickear sound recording artifact can be acquired by members of the public in exchange for personal data and consultations around personal concerns. As artists exploring the ethics and economies of data transactions, our interactions with the public would include a consultation about these issues. To place the work within a contemporary socio-economic context we invented a new corporate identity analogous to the high street retail sector:
Value:

Joey Ryken

Status: Confirmed
Stall Description: This contribution will explore the values that emerge in theatres of therapeutic/transformational exchange. Drawing on the manifold capitalizations of 'transformative' methods/ideologies in New Age culture, this project would question how intimate experiences are materialized into exchangeable form. My method would predatorially exploit gestures or 'readings' of psychic distress, making them manifest and exchangeable. This is an attempt at siting a micro-political allegory for the attention economy propagated social media, with intimate expressions and gesture being offered up voluntarily, to be freely capitalized upon (via Facebook, Instagram, etc.).
Value:

Silvia Rupinska and her Wordpress


Status: Confirmed
Stall Description: In this stand/wall area Silvia will serving water to drink and create conversations about importance of water, rivers, and natural resources. While chatting, people can also see and read about her recent Rivers Project and view her woven steel sculpture of the Slovakian Poprad River called Flowing Roots, which will be on display as a crucial part of my stand area. This sculpture is an artistic representation of the Poprad River and inspired by its beauty but also by a harmful cyanide poisoning which happened in February 2014 and killed thousands of fish and wiped out its ecosystem on 5 km of length. Also on display will be books about about ecosystems of rivers and related reading for people to pick up and browse or sit down and stay for as long as they like.

OTHERS

Alice Tatge

CP Curator: TBC
Stall Status: Confirmed
Stall Description: Success has always been linked with a certain economical status. By opening up an exchange on the subject of success and failure I wish to remind each passerby of the value of immaterial success, the value of intuition and second sense, the value of procrastination and restlessness, the value of chaos and the unknown. The exchange would happen on a one-to-one basis, where I invite people to take a seat and have a moment with me. Each encounter would last aprox. 10 minutes. Combining conversational based engagement with other sensorial stimulus so as to cause a “glitch” in the rational deliberation and hopefully access the visitor’s ‘memory cabinets’ and thought associations connected to their own personal history. The sensorial stimulus will include a visualization exercise, combined with a kit of ‘olfactory potions’ and story telling. A cross between a dialectic exchange, a psychoanalytical session, a shamanic ritual and a mind massage. As for the ‘set design’ of the one-to-one sessions, the awning itself will provide the frame within which this ‘choreography for the mind’ will occur. The space itself will be adorned with textures, materials and objects that will engage the participant on a cerebral but also a sensorial level. Since 2011 I have made a series of guided tours and one-to-one encounters in a variety of settings and environments, including the Hayward Gallery. [www.alicetatge.com Please refer to the ‘Guided Tour’ section] of my website for further descriptions of this type of work.

Francis works in the workshops and has received some time off for pro development to develop his contribution to transacting. We spoke about the BBQ and it was suggested that perhaps it would 'bring your own faire' - you bring it and he cooks it?

CP Curator: Marsha
Stall Status: Confirmed
Stall Description: Value(s): corporate social responsibility and/or the corporatisation of art (?)

Curated This! Pita Arreola, Elliott Burns, Jake Charles Rees, Špela Pipan, Louise Laage Toft,Yusi Xiong

CP Curator: Marsha
Stall Status: Confirmed
Stall Description: ‘Curated This!’ is a reflection, response and call to action for the rephrasing of curatorial practice. Curation has extended into nigh on every facet of our lives: the food in your fridge, your route to work, wardrobe and shoe collection, computer desktop, social media accounts, herb garden etc. ‘Curated This!’ prompts a return to the original concept of curator as caretaker, except imagining one outside of the institution, caring for community rather than object. The project features a publication (open letter, essay, manifesto),website and free stickers. Value(s): care and/as cultural production

CCW Tracers

CP Curator: Marsha
Stall Status: Confirmed
Stall Description: This group will use counter mapping techniques to explore anthropocentic impact, including (creative resistance) to climate change. Value(s): sustainability/residence/post-human sensitivities
