A “Foster Care” Agreement for Artwork & the Search for New Legal Analogies
Op uitnodiging van f.eks.
Op uitnodiging van f.eks. en Scott William Raby spendeerden we een week in Aalborg en Kopenhagen. Hij schrijft zelf over het project:
Through different interactions across Aalborg and Copenhagen, the aim will be to examine legal conditions of artists, art workers, and art interest organizations toward the creation of legal models, commoning, and new forms of collective action for the contemporary art sector. In dialogue with local legal practitioners, artists, curators, and audiences, the project will explore the possibilities transdisciplinary artistic and legal collaboration can produce. By taking TWIIID’s collective “foster care” agreement for art created during the “Endless Exhibition” at Kunsthal Gent in 2021 as a point of departure, the aim will be to explore, contextualize, and experiment with new legal analogies in a Danish context.
This investigation seeks to invoke conversation about the needs, responsibilities, and roles between artists, institutions, and the wider art field. Also, it examines the power legal frameworks have to affect economic, social, and political relations within artistic production, but also in relation to other creative disciplines and precarious working conditions more broadly. What new legal analogies can we envision for artistic production that are more accessible, democratic, and help us “common” in our own localized context? How can closer legal cooperation with the visual art sector support better, fairer, and more interesting conditions for art in Denmark and abroad?
This project is co-supported by UKK Organisation for Artists, Curators, and Art Mediators.
