Art Changing Attitudes toward the Environment
US, New York
May 9-31, 2008
The exhibition is directly tied to the seminar, Unlearning Intolerance: Art Changing Attitudes Toward the Environment, sponsored by the United Nations Department of Public Information in cooperation with NWM and UNEP. The exhibition compliments and expands upon the perspectives presented at the Unlearning Intolerance seminar, including the connections between art, action and human security, and art as a vehicle for environmental action. The works of art to be displayed at the exhibition are creations of the seven artists participating in the Unlearning Intolerance seminar.

nowHere, a space where a spot becomes a place.
15 march - 25 may, 2008

nowHere, is a cabinet which invokes a dialogue on re-appropriation of the private and public domain. Through personal tags and geographies (books, movies, music, websites, drawings, mappings, photocopies, art works, ... ) it reads as a 'certain' historical relation between human, space and technology.

bolwerK considers the constructed in-between space of architect C.Kieckens, within the art space, Z33, not as a sub-art space with a curatorial reading; a cabinet as 'museum' but as a space with a personal narrative and a social meaning embedded in a neighborhood. The active use of the space for living, eating, working, sleeping implies that the cabinet is more a 'room of collection', in a live, real-time situation.

During PLACE@SPACE Marthe Van Dessel will post live from Z33, as a guest contributor on Free Soil, to connect, publish and share her discourse
with the virtual open public resources of the net.

The the conceptualization of the space as 'ongoing', work-in-progress externalizes the precarity of information, issues of copyright, authorship, knowledge production and hierarchical information networks.
