3rd ArtLeaks Working Assembly – Belgrade

Friday, 31st of August, 7pm, 2012
Cultural Center REX, Jevrejska 16, Belgrade, Serbia

Facebook event page here. 

Building on our previous experience organizing an ArtLeaks Working Assemblies in Berlin in June 2012 and Moscow in July 2012, we invite you to a similar working-group format that allows direct engagement with the public at the Cultural Center REX  in Belgrade.

For our Belgrade assembly, our goals for further developments are :

(1) To reach new constituencies from the cultural, social, and political milieu of Belgrade, and  invite them to join our struggles

(2)To research the local socio-political context in which cultural workers are exploited in Belgrade, Serbia in particular and the Balkans generally; to find out about local cases of abuse, corruption and exploitation

(3)To receive critique regarding the manner in which ArtLeaks is currently functioning and may be improved further

(4) To collectively formulate concrete working methodologies and actions that our cultural workers’ alliances may incorporate into their development

Treći ArtLeaks radni skup – Beograd
Kulturni centar REX, Jevrejska 16
31. avgust 2012. u 19h

Učestvuju: Corina L. Apostol, Maja Ćirić, Pavle Ćosić / KORNET, Nikola Radić Lucati, Vladan Jeremić, Selman Trtovac, Vesna Milosavljević / SEEcult.org,  Ștefan Tiron, Noa Treister, The Bureau of Melodramatic Research i Rena Rädle

 

Međunarodna platforma ArtLeaks, posvećena otkrivanju zloupotreba, korupcije i izrabljivanja u oblasti kulture i umetnosti, kao i promeni stanja u tim sektorima, održaće 31. avgusta radnu skupštinu u Beogradu, posle nedavnih sličnih okupljanja u Berlinu i Moskvi.

Skup ArtLeaksa u Kulturnom centru Rex trebalo bi da inspiriše predstavnike lokalnog kulturnog, društvenog i političkog miljea da se pridruže toj međunarodnoj platformi, a poslužiće i za sagledavanje opšteg konteksta rada i eksploatacije kulturnih radnika u Beogradu, Srbiji i na Balkanu generalno.

Takođe, ArtLeaks očekuje da dobije kritičke ocene u vezi sa načinom sopstvenog funkcionisanja kako bi mogao da ga unapredi.
Predviđeno je i zajedničko formulisanje konkretnih radnih metodologija i akcija koje bi različite forme udruživanja radnika u kulturi mogle da primene u svom daljem razvoju.

Prethodne dve radne skupštine ArtLeaksa iznedrile su osnivanje saveza sa internacionalnim grupama kao što su W.A.G.E.(Njujork), Occupy Museums (Njujork), Arts & Labor (Njujork), Haben und Brauchen (Berlin), the Precarious Workers Brigade (London), The May Congress of Creative Workers (Moskva). Njihova misija je formulisanje direktnih akcija i podizanje svesti o uslovima rada i problemima radnika u kulturi i umetnosti.

Osnivači ArtLeaksa veruju da jedino međunarodno koordinisani savezi mogu da razotkriju izrabljivanje i cenzuru u današnjoj umetnosti i kulturi, ali isto tako i da zajednički osmisle nove organizacione modele koji bi odgovorili na potrebe i želje političkih subjekata nastalih na dodirnim tačkama aktuelnih ekonomskih, političkih i kulturnih preokreta.

ArtLeaks je 15. jula održao i skup u Moskvi, a prva radna skupština i radionica održani su početkom juna u Berlinu.

Platforma ArtLeaks počela je da radi 2011. godine, otkrivajući i istražujući slučajeve problematične finansijske politike u savremenoj kulturi, intenzivnu eksploataciju rada u kulturi, preuzimanje javnog prostora posvećeno tzv. nezavisnim inicijativama, aproprijacije kulture pod okriljem zloglasanih korporacija. Više možete naći na linku: http://art-leaks.org

Događaj ne finansiraju fondacije, nego se realizuje od sredstava članova i učesnika ArtLeaks. Posebna zahvala Kulturnom centru REX za velikodušnu mogućnost organizacije ovog događaja u njihovom prostoru 31. avgusta 2012.
