Keep track of Kobe Matthys
Kobe Matthys (Agency) and Stefan Nowotny (teacher at Goldsmiths, University of London) just ran a workshop at Unidee- Cittadellarte – Fondazione Pistoletto. This workshop is part of the UNIDEE fall term titled MODES OF INSTITUTING, dedicated to imagining the role of art organizations in times of perennial crisis, and to discussing what their future(s) in the next twenty years will be. A group of eight young artists and curators from Italy and beyond have been selected to follow these workshops and produce a final document: Agil Abdullayev, Gaia Di Lorenzo, Nicholas Ferrara, Giulia Floris, Carlotta Sofia Grassi, Majd Nasrallah, Yates Norton and Carolina Ongaro.
For Assembly (Modes of Instituting), Agency focussed on collectives and copyright law. One main interest of the conference for Stefan Nowotny was the interrelationship between a micropolitics of the infra-institutional and the desire to open up spaces and times of exchange between different or divergent practices.
