The Knowledge Museum
Lia Perjovschi will discuss a few of her previous projects in context, the evolution of her practice and the changes it underwent as a result of various personal, social and political events, and how she ultimately reached the Knowledge Museum. The Knowledge Museum is a project in which Lia recycles all her other artistic projects including elements of her Contemporary Art Archive (CAA), the first archive of its kind in Romania. Like an architect, she presents a model - on a table, on the walls, or in a space - using diagrams from her interdisciplinary research. This research comes from books, reviews, the internet, and objects mainly in museum stores from around the globe (collected from 1999 until today and used for educational purposes). The Knowledge Museum comprises 7 departments: Earth, Body, Art, Culture, Knowledge, Science, and Universe. It is not 'The Museum', but rather a basic starting point. Knowledge is Surviving (doing the best you can out of what you have).
During this Theory Tuesdays session, Christoph Brunner will be presenting the second chapter of "24/7: Late Capitalism and the End of Sleep" by Jonathan Crary.
The session will be held in English and it's encouraged that you read the chapter (in English) beforehand, to participate in the discussion.

Theory Tuesdays & Practical Fridays
Planning Session / Fall 2014
Theory Tuesdays and Practical Fridays are organized around an „Each One, Teach One“ pedagogical philosophy. During each session, a different person initiates discussion about a specific text, film or leads an instructional workshop.
If you would like to lead a session, please bring a concrete idea about a text, a film or a practical workshop with you to the planning session. During the session, everyone will briefly present their ideas and we will collectively fill in a calendar with the suggestions. Below are a list of requirements to consider.
TEXT - The texts presented and discussed are usually about art, architecture, design, critical and literary theory.
FILM - The films screened are usually about specific artists, art & design movements, avant-garde cinema or documentaries.
WORKSHOP – Past Practical Fridays sessions have included „A Viking Way of Knitting“, „Vocal Training“, „Bouquet Making“ and "How to Correctly Compost". Please keep in mind that a workshop should be no longer than two hours and everyone should be able to participate.
AUF DEUTSCH – Theory Tuesdays and Practical Fridays are not exclusively held in English. Please don't hesitate to make suggestions that are in German.
During this Theory Tuesdays session, Philip Matesic will be presenting excerpts from the book "Searching for Art's New Publics", edited by Jeni Walwin. More information and a .pdf of the text selections to follow.
