Previous editions of AFFECT were supported by a Collective Editing Studio: , integrated by participants of AFFECT, facilitating artists, curators, mediators and coordination team, in collaboration with Broken Dimanche Press (editor in Chief and co-founder John Holten) and FUK Graphic Design Studio.
The experience of experimenting with editorial frames as one more collaborative methodology accommodating different sensitivities and practices along the residency process, is the base upon which AFFECT 2018 is built.
After 3 years coordinating 14 collaborative productions which resulted in a program of 14 ephemeral exhibitions & performative events, our residency outcome model shifts towards the production of a final e-publication project. As a reaction to the excess of production in today's context of artistic mobility, thinking of critical ways to produce/relate/encounter/affect/map/preserve knowledge is central to our proposal for "Micro-Utopias: Cartographies of Relational Art in Berlin". Under this umbrella, we welcome a wide spectrum of participants from artistic, theoretical, scientific, engineering or social working backgrounds to gradually contribute to the publication process through the insights gain in the module and all the knowledge they already come with, shaping a self-styled cartography of subjectivities, encounters and methods within Berlin’s micro-utopias of art+life.
The publication will include i.e: essays, interviews, performative scores, conversations, manifestos, artistic exercises, video documentations, etc. The publication will be launched in January 2019.
You can see here a list of past publication projects as an inspiration for this year’s AFFECT Collective Editing Studio.
