STUDIOvisits is the artist´s studio –both physical and conceptual- that visits… STUDIOvisits´ vehicles are concepts, texts, objects, ideas, processes moving/migrating/translating around in reciprocal directions. STUDIOvisits´ itineraries are translocal. STUDIOvisits´ desire is to transfer, postpone and prolongue the processes of reflection upon concepts and objects that surround and construct the so called „artwork“. STUDIOvisits is a thought- and praxis-based artistic enterprise that aims to overcome the reduction of the „artwork“ to a mere commodity that follows the laws of the (art) market.
STUDIOvisits is a project of encounters taken in random intervals between artists, theorists, poets,
architects and other art workers.
STUDIOvisits ´ starting point is the desire to find new formats that will communicate both the process
and the outcome of artistic concepts. The departure area of STUDIOvisits is the artist’s work space.
STUDIOvisits intents to elaborate through encounters a network of artists, theorists and architects
that will deal with the spatio-temporal discourses and processes of the artistic work within our sociopolitical present.
Thus, the work of art becomes a common topos for discursive and process-based exchange.
These encounters might take the form of a one-to-one discussion, a three-day presentation/exhibition, a workshop,
a collaborative piece of art, a book, an open discussion...
STUDIOvisits poses the question of whether it is possible for artists to re/generate through collaboration and exchange
the (sociopolitical, aesthetic) value of their work.
STUDIOvisits aims to function as an OPEN SOURCE PROJECT in analogue space and time.
Therefore it is open to ideas and concepts for encounters.
A blog will follow up all upcoming encounters.
