The Rise of Predatory Locales in the Postwar World
On inventive and imaginative research Pandemonium -"the rise of predatory locales in the postwar world" should be mentionned. About techniques of control in a capitalist society, quite a dark book but actually achieves a somewhat productive critizism. Though from personal experience and from a talk yesterday on working in callcenters it might be that on that topic you could write an even grimmer book -my roommate worked for a year at a call center in Scotland and all their performances was messured and put to statistics above 30 min of going to the restroom a week would get you sacked and everybody knew that they were being monitored on their every moove. Access to these workplaces are quite restricted and doing reasarch on it would take a Gunter wallraff approach - which would offcourse be an interesting project in it self.

nowHere, a space where a spot becomes a place.
15 march - 25 may, 2008

nowHere, is a cabinet which invokes a dialogue on re-appropriation of the private and public domain. Through personal tags and geographies (books, movies, music, websites, drawings, mappings, photocopies, art works, ... ) it reads as a 'certain' historical relation between human, space and technology.

bolwerK considers the constructed in-between space of architect C.Kieckens, within the art space, Z33, not as a sub-art space with a curatorial reading; a cabinet as 'museum' but as a space with a personal narrative and a social meaning embedded in a neighborhood. The active use of the space for living, eating, working, sleeping implies that the cabinet is more a 'room of collection', in a live, real-time situation.

During PLACE@SPACE Marthe Van Dessel will post live from Z33, as a guest contributor on Free Soil, to connect, publish and share her discourse
with the virtual open public resources of the net.

The the conceptualization of the space as 'ongoing', work-in-progress externalizes the precarity of information, issues of copyright, authorship, knowledge production and hierarchical information networks.
