Time for some self promotion!

On June 5,6 and 7, we will present a bus tour, an outdoor film/video festival and an on-site exchange in conjunction with the 2nd Biennial 01SJ Global Festival of Art on the Edge in San Jose, California.

This tour takes inspiration from the spirit of counter cultural activities prevalent in this region in the late 1960ís, namely the activities of the Mid-Peninsula Free University, Homebrew Computer Club,draft-resisters and the back-to-landers.

The local landscape will provide a campus for our roaming classroom. The bus will traverse the Santa Clara Valley using public facilities, nature preserves and back alleys to host projects by a wide range of practitioners. We will use this free campus to explore, discover and generate critical responses to the pressing issues that affect not only ourselves, but our whole round planet.

A Free Soil reader will be published alongside this project that looks at various forms of education as cultural production and creative resistance.

Reports will follow. Stay tuned.!

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.
