The amateur vs. the professional: visual arts, Open Source and the curator’s role in 2012 (panel)Tags: conference, diy, freshheads, incubate, open source expo, short films, visual arts
The conventional structure of ‘gatekeepers’, who determine what the public gets to see seems to shift to that of synergy between the artists and their audience. With this idea Incubate organized the Open Source Expo. The concept is simple: artists apply with two to five artworks, the curator chooses one artwork and composes an exhibition with all these works. Everyone joins in, nobody gets excluded. Why would an artist send in work for free? Why would a professional artist want to exhibit their work next to an amateur? What is the role of the curator in an exhibition without a strict contextual framework?

(Illustration: Wouter Medaer) On Friday, September 14, Mark Fisher will give a keynote during the Incubate DIY Conference. Mark Fisher is the author of Capitalist Realism: Is There No Alternative? and is a blogger under the name of k-punk. You can also find him on Twitter here. During his talk, he'll speak about the topics of his book. In Capitalist Realism, Fisher surveys the symptoms of our current cultural malaise. After 1989, capitalism has successfully presented itself as the only realistic political-economic system. We live in a world in which we have been told, again and again, that There Is No Alternative. Using examples from politics, films, fiction, work and education, he argues that capitalist realism colours all areas of contemporary experience, while even holding out the prospect of an antidote.
As a preview for the conference, Mark Fisher wrote an exclusive article for the independent music & culture magazine Gonzo (circus). The article, called Time Wars is about our constant struggle with time, in relation with work, capitalism, our attention span and our relations and communications with others. The article appeared in Gonzo (circus) issue #110, but has now also been made available to read online. Click here for the English version, Dutch readers can read the translated version here. Make sure to attend Mark Fisher's keynote on the DIY Conference as well. Pay What You Want-tickets for the event are available here.Tags: capitalism, capitalist realism, conference, diy, gonzo (circus), incubate, k-punk, mark fisher, pay what you want, time wars
