AF with WAZA at Documenta

Agence Future joins WAZA at Documenta 15 - Lumbung for four days of polylogue aimed at the co-creation of various images of the futures of artistic practices. 

Half a dozen in depth conversations and as many quick-fire conversations as well as two dedicated workshops will contribute to a videologue, relating and visualising different perspectives on what artists, their communities and subcultures can mean for the futures and how they see themselves in the long run. Our conversation partners will be our guides as we consider what contemporary artistic practices may contribute to and get from personal, local and global futures. 

Through accounts of our own co-created futures explorations and by sharing and repeating the processes behind them, by listening to the stories of others, by recording, selecting and editing live in the thick of the action, we take part in Waza’s Baraza to the full extent. By engaging in a process relying on successful multi-vocality, sharing our earlier harvests, picking low-hanging fruits together and planting seeds for tomorrow’s crop, we take part in the event’s Lumbung. 

Documenta has been labelled a key rendezvous for contemporary art and as such can provide a convivial setting for the scaled polylogues that our practice seeks to enliven. Already understood as a driving force transforming the artworld, Documenta this year putting collectivity centre stage, provides a natural setting for attempting futures-oriented co-creation. 

Come talk about your images of the futures with us at Fridericianum on August 7, 8, 9 and 10.

See the videologue at Gloria-Kino on August 11.
