Hart Island New York

@ VOL 13 ON NOV 25, 2015

Maurits Wouters is ontwerper en mede-oprichter van het all-round ontwerpbureau Studio AIRPORT. Nu nog een kleine studio met zeven mensen maar zeker één met grote gedachten. Drie jaar geleden kregen ze de opdracht om een digitaal platform te ontwikkelen voor Hart Island. Een voor velen onbekend eiland voor de kust van New York waar sinds 1868 bijna één miljoen mensen liggen begraven in vergetelheid. Het Hart Island Project probeert al decennia lang het eiland toegankelijk te maken en de begrafenisdocumenten openbaar te stellen voor de nabestaanden. En daar heeft studio AIRPORT een website voor ontwikkeld.

The De-Institution: Or. How to Make A Contemporary Arts Space with no Capital, Networks or Cred

@ VOL 17 ON SEP 15, 2016

"Number 1. Be an ornery artist. You're mad. You went to art school. You go to shows in basements and living rooms. You are the poster child of the scurvy-laced bohemia. Your parents can't pay your rent."

In The De-Institution: Or. How to Make A Contemporary Arts Space with no Capital, Networks or Cred from PechaKucha Buffalo vol. 17, artist and founder of Dreamland Art Gallery in Buffalo, NY, Dana Mcknight, illustrates twenty steps to carving out a cutting-edge, artist-run space outside of the dominant, institutional realm. Mcknight cautions, "To be an institution is to own-- ­­­to place value on possession rather than action. To fixate on conservative contentment rather than Hope and Possibility. Artist-led spaces fizzle out all the time. Let us not leave behind the phoenix eggs to merely touch a tusk in the Elephant graveyard."
