Rethinking Art as Experience
Barcelona
Is there any other way that art can exist in the public sphere?
This is the kick off question for the seminar at the MACBA, Barcelona on November 25 and 26 from 11 am-9 pm.
This is how they describe it:
From relationality’s point of view, the Museum is a space for art in which new forms of social interaction are investigated without limiting its function to mere exhibition, but creating an experimental platform. In this way, art can contribute significantly to the multiplication of public spheres through a process in which various subjects, forms and spaces participate.

Institutions that engage actively in the public sphere is unfortunately a rare thing. Expect a report in the near future.

FRUIT takes up the challenge of elevating the ecological knowledge of consumers and encouraging a way of life that is friendly to the environment. We want consumers to be conscious of the entire life of a product, from production to utilization, and not just what they see in the stores. Consumers must be aware that every phase of a product's life influences the environment and ourselves.

Free Soil has produced a run of FRUIT wrappers, a website, and a traveling installation as part of an initiative to inform people about alternative food systems and local food movements. The wrappers are disseminated throughout the food chain by piggybacking on oranges. Information will be carried through the food system and into the hands of consumers. The wrapper holds information on a variety of aspects concerning food movements, transport and urban farming. Get your daily dose!
