ARTIST TALK - APPARATUS 22
Apparatus 22 on gifts, broadcasting, positive destruction and blank auguri
Friday 11 October 2019, 20:00
This talk will introduce several aspects of the practice of Apparatus 22 art collective, through a set of topics ranging from the necessity for positive destruction to their bold explorations of gift economy, from their love for names and coining terms to their inquiry into the potential of radio broadcasting, in order to epitomize usually inaccessible contours and spaces, through the use of language, voice and sounds.
Art collective Apparatus 22 (Bucharest/Brussels) works in the development programme of Kunsthal Gent from July to October 2019. This summer they presented a series of performances in the city of Ghent and took over Kunsthal Gent with an epic confetti explosion full of critical questions. Apparatus 22 was part of the jury for the 2019-2020 development programme and they are currently devising - as part of their work - a new name for one of Kunsthal Gent's spaces. Being one of the first guest artists, they help to further shape the programme with their constructive feedback.
