FORMAT, Summer events at the Architectural Association

FORMAT is 'live magazine' looking at the shapes that discourse takes. This summer at the AA, Issue 3 will talk about talking, show what it means to show something, and present the hidden politics of presentation.

Issue 3, 2-12 July 2013, features a format that reveals how unreal reality is, a format that mixes thinking with wandering, a format that promises us things to come, a format that promises to make us laugh and a format that celebrates a giant of history writing.

Women and the Archive: A Partial Disclosure

Curated by Anna Colin
Produced by Whitechapel Gallery in partnership with The Women's Library.

Women and the Archive: A Partial Disclosure presented four perspectives on the relationship between women and the archive in contemporary artistic production. Artists, collectives and researchers using archives as source material or constituting archives as their primary activity were invited to present their rarely shown collections of photographs, videos and audio recordings around women of artistic, social and political importance. Issues of provenance, methodology, property and historicisation were addressed throughout the afternoon via presentations, screenings, performances and a panel discussion.

This event was devised as part of The Street, a year-long series of artists' commissions by the Whitechapel Gallery on and around Wentworth Street. Women and the Archive: A Partial Disclosure was organised in partnership with The Women's Library.

THE OLD BRAND NEW How new is neo, and does 'retro' bring renewal?

THE OLD BRAND NEW How new is neo, and does 'retro' bring renewal?

In the arts, the concept 'new' is an ideal as well as a curse. The avant-garde has been declared dead and 'the cult of the new' is past its peak. The pursuit of absolute originality and total innovation has given way to concepts such as remix and postproduction, eclecticism and syncretism. Is 'new' still permitted, how new is neo, how innovative is retro? By looking at the term 'new' in the light of 'old' subjects such as virtuosity, beauty, knowledge and entertainment, the lecture series THE OLD BRAND NEW proposes to free 'new' of its stale image and present it in its full complexity.

Summit - non-aligned initiatives in education culture.

Two weeks before the 2007's G-8 meeting, a wide range of projects, initiatives and protagonists from the fields of art, culture and political activism had gathered in Berlin for "SUMMIT non- aligned initiatives in education culture." SUMMIT was a forum for questioning and changing some of the fundamental terms of the debate around education, knowledge production and information society.

Beyond the widespread lament about the crisis in education, there are numerous initiatives converging around "education." Recognizing that education is equally a platform for cultural actualization and self organization, these initiatives range from free academies and exhibitions as educational modes to ad-hoc initiatives within social, political and cultural organizations. Parallel to these developments, many initiatives are taking place within or at the margins of institutions that work against the grain of their official modes and expand, rather than defy, existing aims.

Necessary Journeys

'The gift of travel has been enabling for me in the same way that it has been enabling for those writers in the British tradition, those in the African diasporan tradition, and those in the Caribbean tradition, many of whom have found it necessary to move in order that they might reaffirm for themselves the fact that dual and multiple affiliations feed our constantly fluid sense of self.'
- Caryl Phillips
