Really Simple Syndication
Really Simple Syndication is the independent publisher of SixtyEight Art Institute. The goal for RSS is to recreate the relationship between art, theory and literature as a way of promoting critical discourse, and as an attempt to create an international voice through the physical presence of Sixty Eight in Copenhagen. Really Simple Syndication will launch publications with a focus on artistic research, either project oriented or as a part of an expanded practice that origins in curatorial exhibition considerations. The goal is to both cooperate with new and established artists and curators. Furthermore, would RSS as an initiative and platform invite artists, curators and writers to visualize their research through aesthetic experiments and different publishable formats (either as an extension of SixtyEight Art Institutes current research practice, or through new configurations of artistic research).
For Alt_Cph 18: Liv Schulman will present the lecture performance Formal Economy, in which she will stand in a space filled by a group of sculptures. These sculptures can be seen as a metaphorical residue of the global production surplus, or as a group of neurons. Using a loosely poetic form of speech act, she will think among and through the sculptures, telling stories about various forms of informal economy that exist within emotional lives.
As an addition to the discursive program Jytte Rex will present a selection of her films, followed by a talk moderated by Anja Franke. She will shed light on the motivations behind her work, which social conditions played a role in their conception, and why she has been interested in making films about major figures in Danish art and culture.
