18 November – 18 December 2016

(no)action(no)space is a research and working platform that investigates collective spaces of action and the structures that support and inhabit them. A shared space of action, developed over several informal symposia with a view to becoming a digital publication, is now made public as an exhibition. What infrastructures have emerged or might now be required, and how do these in turn shape the individual contributions and positions of its participants? Entering the institution through a back door, the artists take this opportunity to interact, together with their tools, potentialities and limitations, within co-created spaces that are analogue, virtual, social and fictional.

(Making) Time and Space in Science Fiction - a night of cinematic potpourri and Speculative Fermentation

A potpourri of time & space in SF film. After we'll have a listen and a dance to the soundtracks. Films at 8pm, come early for sauerkraut by the Lively Arts reading group! //....... Donna Haraway's Sf is 'speculative fabulation, science fiction, science fact, speculative feminism, soin de ficelle, so far... the patterning of possible worlds and possible times, material-semiotic worlds, gone, here and yet-to-come.' Like sauerkraut, it is also 'practice and process; it is becoming-with each other in surprising relays'.

Building structure from materials of value - an experiment in hands-on discussion

Participants are invited to make discussion by building structures from a select palette of materials and tools. The topic for discussion will be introduced in the form of a lecture. The fact that the materials selected for this task reference values that resulted from Bruno Latour's investigation into our modes of existence, might or might not be important. The tools will be selected for their ability to manipulate and join these materials in a variety of ways and could be unequally distributed among the participants. The discussion will last slightly longer than the lecture, and will end with tea and sweets. Come hungry.
