ALFREDO CRAMEROTTI: I believe in starting from the middle…  2012

talk, seminar, debate, screening

Alfredo Cramerotti's lecture at the CCA Centre For Contemporary Art Ujazdowski Castle, Warsaw, Poland, for the "Office of Possibilities' - Platform for discussion about the transformation of an art institute. - - - - - - - The lecture revolved around the idea of expanding curatorial and artistic activities beyond the environment of art; specifically, beyond the art space as such. It looked into the possibility of creating other spaces, however risky and limited in time and scope, in order to challenge the 'safe' fencing of artistic practices within the (global) art circuit, and presented a number of cases in which people pushed these boundaries - sometime successfully, other times less so. Finally, it opened up a discussion about risks and benefits involved in opening such spaces, treating them as agents of translation rather than representation. - - - - - - Alfredo Cramerotti – is a writer, curator, editor and artist working across a variety of media such as TV, radio, publishing, internet, media festivals, photography, writing and exhibition curating. He directs Mostyn, Wales. - - - - - Video trailer: http://youtu.be/kzHCrMiyWFg
