"It is precisely at the moment where one thing becomes something else that the action gets really exciting. Thatís where the exchanges happen: chemical reactions, fistfights, osmosis, infections, kisses. Surface to surface, separate entities meet and make a border. The relation changes, the border changes. One thing to count on: it will never stay the same. Given the alternating violence and richness of borders, what strategies can we develop to better work with and across them? As cultural producers, how do we navigate this territory in order to create politically relevant work?

As part of SKOLís new summer internship, Gina Badger, Adrienne Mak, and Amy Novak are inviting proposals to participate in a six-day intensive development and creation workshop that will culminate in a collaborative exhibition. Participants in the workshops will be asked to prepare a presentation for a panel, help come up with activities and fieldtrips, and collaborate in creating the exhibition."

The workshop series will take place in Montreal from July 10 to 16; the exhibition will run from July 18 to August 14, and will be followed by a publication.

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.
