Play for Today: Cornelius Cardew Conference

The final weekend of Calling Out Of Context focuses on the legacy of the British composer and activist Cornelius Cardew (1936-81), a figure who helped question artistic boundaries in the 1960s, but whose politics brought him back to more traditional and accessible forms of music-making in the 1970s.

Becoming Dutch

The word caucus derives from a term for a Native American practice in which a community comes together to discuss the future and to vote, constituting a very pragmatic form of democracy. Becoming Dutch has chosen to take this concept as inspiration for their three-week interdisciplinary programme.

From November 9 to December 6 Eindhoven will host a unique series of events in which artists, curators, philosophers and other creative thinkers from around the world will gather in the Van Abbemuseum to work, debate and engage in a dialogue about art and its relationships with identity, diversity, culture and society.

Manifesto Marathon: Manifestos for the 21st Century

Manifesto Marathon, the third in the Serpentine Gallery's acclaimed series of Marathon events, takes place in the closing weekend of the Serpentine Gallery Pavilion 2008, designed by Frank Gehry. Manifesto Marathon comes at a time when artists are working less in formal groups and defined artistic movements. The Marathon showcases a new generation of artists alongside practitioners from the worlds of literature, design, science, philosophy, music and film who are returning to the historical notion of the manifesto. The Manifesto Marathon draws on the Serpentine Gallery's close proximity to Speakers' Corner in Hyde Park, which has been used as a platform by Karl Marx, Vladimir Lenin, George Orwell and William Morris, among many others.

"We are all already in Space... "

Images Sometimes Tremble: Encounters with Durational Cinema

PSi #12: Performing Rights focuses on questions of performance and human rights and is composed of two distinct but related programmes: a Conference and a series of Manifestations

The PSi #12 Conference is a programme of plenary sessions, papers, panels and dialogues organised by academics, artists and activists who are making and researching performance that declares its interest and intent within the field of human rights. Around the world, performance-based research and projects both challenge the ways in which human rights are kept distant from the everyday situations in which abuse and discrimination operate, and are a means by which human rights can be understood as part of evolving cultural and political processes. The PSi #12 Conference will attempt to reflect these processes and further their impact through a provocative mix of practice and discourse. Over 400 participants from over 30 countries are attending the conference.
