Community media, Community art production and Democratic knowledge
The artistic-democratic capacities of communities and their organisations are often underestimated and neglected, pushed aside by traditional top-down structures, and leadership, expertise and professional models. This seminar aims to critically explore the artistic-democratic capacities of communities and their organisations, identify problems, obstacles and restrictions, and look ahead at the conditions of possibility for the continued democratisation of the social and its many fields.
The seminar included the following talks:
- Vuk Ćosić (SI) – From Nettime via Syndicate to 7-11
- Pascal Gielen (BE) – Community Art, A Neoliberal Solution for the Deconstruction of the Welfare State?
- Helen Hahmann (DE) – Highjacking Radio Art. Artistic practice in Community Radio
- Nicos Trimikliniotis (CY) – Beyond austerity citizenship and nationalistic communalism in Cypriot ‘community media’: social media, digitalities and emancipation – towards a mobile commons
