The AA at Manifesta 8, Spain

Arts Assembly – CPS

A Reflexive Organ of CPS, Curators of Manifesta 8

A Perpetuum Mobilεzation

The Arts Assembly – CPS is a programme of critical evaluations of the Chamber of Public Secrets (CPS), in its capacity as a curatorial team of Manifesta 8.

An Arts Assembly (AA) is a reflexive model for cooperation in the creative field. It unites a diversity of actors in a new genre of formats based on participatory action through peer-to-peer platforms. One can imagine it as a self-constituting parliament. Each AA is structured and tailored to develop a unique modus vivendi for each unique context. In its work for CPS-M8 the AA will operate as a reflexive and critical organ. The membership of  AAs includes artists, philosophers, writers, curators and other intellectuals and art-actors. The CPS AA at Manifesta 8 will include experienced members of the first Helsinki AA. It will “constitute” Charters to evaluate works and processes in public Assemblies.

The early-stage list of participants includes: CPS (Curators at Manifesta 8 ), Perpetuum Mobilε, Parfyme (www.parfyme.dk, Copenhagen), S.a.L.E. (Venice) and Damian Le Bas (London)..

A documentary film by Perpetuum Mobilε for CPS-M8 will be co-produced by the AA with the Finnish-Iranian director Hamy Ramezan.

WE ARE ACTIVELY SEEKING PARTICIPANTS
for certain Chambers of the AA-CPS at M8.

    The overall goal of the Arts Assembly – CPS is to reflect, analyse, reformulate and critically represent the CPS process at Manifesta 8 through procedures which are both analytical and performative as new works and evaluations.

The Arts Assembly – CPS is a programme of critical evaluations of the Chamber of Public Secrets (CPS) in the context of Manifesta 8. It is piloted by Perpetuum Mobilε.

What is an Arts Assembly?

An Arts Assembly is a reflexive model for co-operation in the creative field. It unites a diversity of actors in new “formats” based on participatory action through peer-to-peer platforms. There are several Chambers of the Assembly.

The Value Chamber (aka the Auction Chamber):

This chamber was first conceived (during the collapse of casino-style markets) after the fashion of auctions: through bids and counter-bids according to a procedure.  Given the absurd volatility of market valuations, the Value Chamber is designed to provide non-monetary procedures for the evaluation – critical, practical, aesthetic, political, philosophical or otherwise – of artworks presented to it.

The Chamber of Public Secrets:

Many ideas, histories or movements are public, but not known…

The Chamber of Diversity and Pre-Universalism:

This Chamber’s title springs from our conviction that it has long been time to get past the ‘posts’ — post-modernism, post-histoire, post-Soviet, post-colonial, post-national, etc. — and turn to the ideational creativity involved in formulating the oncoming epoch: the pre.

The Copyist Chamber:

The Kamera Kopista, as it is also known, researches models of theoretical, performative, artistic and empirical knowledge; creative content; and creates copies of it and it’s context (the Art Assembly event itself) in other spaces, events and contexts. It claims that the avant-garde producer today is one that shares, copies and clones its work.
