STATE OF THE ARTS PRESENTEERT:
SOTA FAIR ARTS ALMANAC 2022

SOTA Fair Arts Almanac 2022

State Of The Arts (SOTA) is een open platform dat de hedendaagse kunstwereld opnieuw wil verbeelden. Wij geloven dat de transitie van de kunstwereld naar een meer rechtvaardige praktijk ook kan dienen als een katalysator voor echte verandering in de bredere samenleving.

In 2019 publiceerde SOTA de eerste Fair Arts Almanac. De inhoud van het boek werd ontwikkeld tijdens een zomerkamp in 2018 waarin ongeveer 70 medewerkers actief waren. De samenstelling van diverse artikelen in deze eerste editie was bewust opengesteld voor debat en associatief samengesteld, met veel tegenstrijdigheden, losse eindjes en botsingen die aanleiding gaven tot discussie.

In 2021 zal SOTA een reeks ontmoetingen organiseren, die elke laatste zaterdag van de maand plaatsvinden op een andere locatie in België en steeds een ander onderwerp of vraag aanvatten, die vandaag de dag binnen de kunstwereld leeft. Deze thema's worden verdeeld over de kalender van het hele jaar, rekening houdend met de gevoeligheden van de verschillende seizoenen.

DE-SCHOOL

Maart is de maand van de woede. Hoe is het geglobaliseerde kunstonderwijs in zo'n standaardisatie terechtgekomen? Studenten en andere actoren vragen om het recht om zelf te beslissen over hun curriculum, sommigen vragen om andere pedagogische modellen en anderen zetten tijdelijke scholen op.

Zaterdag 27 maart, 11.00 - 18.00
Locatie: Kunsthal Gent, Lange Steenstraat 14, 9000 Gent
