Last night (5 September) we had a fairly successful initial meeting on Google hangout which helped to get everyone in one place at one time. (Thank you to everyone who took part). The aim of this meeting was to pull a few thoughts together around plans for a second Laboratory of Dissent at Winchester School of Art, in order that we can submit a proposal to the committee.
It was decided that everyone interested in participating should put forward an expression of interest to Maija and I, and, rather than submit a statement as such, we would pose two questions to draw out your interests/ideas.
Overall, the theme for next years exhibition is, Inside / Outside to be interpreted in all manner of ways, but seen through a lens of dissent. Please read the information about the project we will be proposing to the gallery here: Private Facebook Group Link
The questions your expression of interest should address are;
1: What ideas/theories would you like to put to the test/what experiment would you like to carry out in this 2nd Laboratory?
2. What form might these explorations take in the actual spaces on offer?
Please email us your expressions of interest responding to these questions by midnight Sunday 16th September. We will then assign you to working groups to develop your part of the proposal for a collaborative experimental exhibition.
