The Public Studio: Exploring Autogenous Culture through Participatory Art Practices workshop with Dr Felicia Low (Singapore), artist and Director, Community Cultural Development

Description

6 Jun 2018, Wed 07:00 PM - 09:00 PM
The Lab, Block 43 Malan Road

This workshop by Dr Felicia Low presents the concept of autogenous cultural practices, which are defined by life practices that neither rely on nor protest the influence of the state on the site of the body and everyday life. Low also proposes for autogenous cultural practices which establish their own forms of life and measures of value that are in no way dictated by predetermined institutional forms of social life and engagement. To illustrate this proposal, Low will draw upon references from her publication Autogenous Culture As Political Form (2016) as well as an auto-ethnographical account of three participatory art projects — first, a project with the incarcerated in a governmental disciplinary centre; second, Project X, a non-governmental organisation that supports sex workers; and lastly, an independent art project with three young women.

The second part of the workshop will culminate in a conversation between the artist, the Centre’s Young Professional Trainees (YPT) who are the curators of this project, as well as the public. The conversation will trace the connections between Low’s practice and other educational projects through a selection of materials from the NTU CCA Singapore’s Public Resource Platform.

*This workshop is a public programme of the current research project Public Resource Platform: We Are Open! in The Lab.
