How Can You Relate? – A Case of Alienation and Closeness

Saturday 8 February 2014, 2–8pm

Free admission, but tickets are limited. Please book here

How can you relate? looks at what it is to transpose personal practice into a public event. Constructed as a series of performances, screenings and works, How can you relate? considers where the artistic subject is found across constellations of production, distribution and consumption. The event consists of a series of lateral questions alongside more tacit propositions that fold back onto the structure of the event itself.

Edited by Pieternel Vermoortel, hosted and co-organised by LUX and the Showroom.

The LUX Associate Artist Programme is a 12 month post-academic development course for artists working with the moving image. It aims to provide an intensive development focused on critical discourse, extending to the practical and infrastructural issues that present challenges for artists working with the medium. The programme consists of a minimum of 12 monthly critical seminars taking place at LUX exploring issues around artists’ moving image in the context of the artists’ own practice. Previous AAP Projects include (dis)chorus Residency, a project of the 2010/11 programme, Detroit, the 2009/10 final project, 8 Metaphors (because the moving image is not a book) for the 2008/9 final project and The Politics in the Room the AAP 2007/8 final project.
