Art for (and within) a Citizen Scene 1 & 2: Hybrid eXperience
Framer Framed will host a series of online workshops in the context of Art for (and within) a Citizen Scene: A Look at Art Primarily Active in the Context of Daily Practices, an upcoming co-publication project between Framer Framed and the Willem de Kooning Academy.
In line with the concept of the book, these workshops will create a safe space for dialogue and exchange. Led by Sigmund Roy G Pecho, the first two workshops: Art for (and within) a Citizen Scene: Hybrid eXperience 1 & 2 are taking place on the 28th March and on the 4th April at 11:00. We invite you to immersive virtual environments to gather, play, discover, and share ideas about the publication on the platform gather.town.
The interface includes games as well as texts and video clips related to the publication Art for (and within) a Citizen Scene: A Look at Art Primarily Active in the Context of Daily Practices. Participants may encounter instances where they are invited to reflect and respond to issues of community-based artistic practices, alternative spaces, and the social role of art. After our virtual wandering, we will come together around the fireplace to share our findings, and discuss how this experience might raise new questions or change our thoughts on certain issues. The drawings, texts, collages generated from this online experience will serve as inspirations and frameworks for the final design of the publication.
The online workshops are FREE and have limited spots. Please register to join the workshops by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. You will receive an invitation to participate in a gather.town meeting by email. The language is English. All workshops can be taken separately.

About the publication project
How can an artist or art organisation involve their audience into the process of production? If we shift our attention away from artistic practices based on individual success and the production of objects, what do those other practices have to offer? How does the materialisation of those practices look like, and how do they relate to their surroundings? What does collaboration mean today, and what positions do artists take during these collaborations? These are some of the questions addressed in Art for (and within) a Citizen Scene: A Look at Art Primarily Active in the Context of Daily Practices, a publication in which ten artists/cultural practitioners converse in pairs to share their personal thoughts and experiences.
Set to release in Spring, 2022, Art for (and within) a Citizen Scene: A Look at Art Primarily Active in the Context of Daily Practices wants to shed light on practices in specific communities where collaboration is common in daily life; where art is seen not only as a self-contained profession, but also as ways of living and being. In line with this collaborative concept, we are pleased to announce this series of online workshops/events in which we invite people to collectively explore different ways of designing the publication and become one of our contributors for this book.
For each series of online gatherings, lecture doodlings, and music hangouts, we will send out booklets containing different parts of the texts in advance and exchange our thoughts during the events. Participants will share their insights and observations of the texts, create visuals, text-based materials, or come up with new design frameworks that might allow the texts to be more experience-able. The different ideas and perspectives will be gathered and processed into the actual book-design.
Participants of the workshops/events will be credited in the final publication, and will receive a free pdf copy once the publication is released.
Art for (and within) a Citizen Scene: A Look at Art Primarily Active in the Context of Daily Practices is a collaboration of Framer Framed and the Willem de Kooning Academy.
