Things come alive when there is friction

Pay what you can

Lunch Talk:
Alex Misick (CCA Glasgow)

Alex Misick (CCA Glasgow) over samenwerking met het bredere kunstenveld via CCA Glasgow’s "open source-programma". Met als respondent: kunstenaar Gordon Douglas, artist-in-residence bij CCA Glasgow.

  • Deuren open: 12:00 (reserveer een broodje: info@kunsthal.gent, of breng je lunch mee)
  • Lunch talk: 12:30 – 13:45 uur

Kunsthal Gent wil ruimte bieden aan samenwerking met veel verschillende partners. Ter inspiratie kijken we onder meer naar CCA Glasgow, een hedendaags kunstcentrum dat een model van open source programming ontwikkelde om samenwerking met het bredere kunstenveld te faciliteren. Alex Misick, open source programmacoördinator voor CCA Glasgow, licht hun werkwijze toe.

'Om dit beleid te laten werken, zijn twee elementen cruciaal. De eerste is coördinatie. Naarmate de activiteiten in de ruimtes groeiden, creëerden we een rol voor iemand om verbindingen te leggen en de verschillende evenementen in het gebouw te coördineren. Het tweede cruciale element is selectie. Het is duidelijk dat een dergelijk beleid gemakkelijk kan worden misbruikt of dat het snel een caleidoscoop van willekeurige events kan worden. Om dit te voorkomen, wordt elk event en elk partnerprogramma intern beschouwd en moet elk nieuw event aan CCA worden voorgesteld. (…) De voordelen hiervan voor iedereen zijn een veel groter gevoel van eigenaarschap van de ruimte door een breder spectrum van het kunstenveld.’ Meer informatie

Alex Misick werkt als programmacoördinator bij CCA Glasgow en leidt het open source partnerprogramma, met meer dan 1.000 events per jaar. Daarnaast coördineert hij CCA's Creative Lab residency-programma.

Gordon Douglas is een performancekunstenaar uit Glasgow. Hij werkt momenteel samen met CCA Glasgow aan een performatieve audit van hun open-sourcebeleid en een reeks evenementen met de titel 'An Opposites Program' (2018-19) die deze feedback 'live' willen maken.
