The digital age has shown us how easily knowledge and information are now able to flow and circulate. It has rendered equally visible how hard it is especially for artists to challenge the dominant online presence with their commitment to printed matter and publishing. This workshop will engage with publications arguing for their role in creating a wider public. We will be discussing contemporary conditions of production, circulation, and distribution which insist on including questions of ownership, usership and belonging as concerns integral to the artistic practice itself.

Session 1. Archival knowledge as public awakening.
TEACHING: The remote learning experience includes lectures, seminar participation and discussions. The course provides unique opportunities for direct student engagement with arts professionals, as well an extensive array of discussion forums.
FACULTY: The lectures will be hold by Marysia Lewandowska. She is a Polish-born artist based in London since 1985. She has been exploring the public functions of archives, museums and exhibitions often resulting in conceptually driven projects and films involving the property of others. These works propose new relations between forms of knowledge and ownership, activating reflections on the social and immaterial public realm. In 2009 she has established the Women’s Audio Archive followed by a publication Undoing Property? co-edited with Laurel Ptak in 2013. Her work has been presented by Tate Modern, Moderna Museet, Muzeum Sztuki, Whitechapel Gallery. The latest installation It’s About Time occupied the Pavilion of Applied Arts at the 58th Art Biennale in Venice. The Museum of Modern Art in Warsaw has recently included the Enthusiasts Archive project in their collection. She is currently collaborating with Kunsthalle Baden Baden on re-thinking institutional practices for the post-pandemic times.www.marysialewandowska.com
