Introduction


In a house where several people live and work together, the centre is the kitchen: the meeting place where informal exchanges happen. Such was also the case at Arc artist residency in Romainmôtier: the kitchen was the beating heart of the institution. It was a space where artists would gather when they took a break from their research, where they would cook and eat together, where other guests would join in. This book is inspired by that kitchen, by its conviviality, the sharing of food and knowledge, the experiments that took place. <read more>

Re-invent the residency

In the privileged settings of Central, Western and Northern Europe, and moreover in privileged sectors like the fields of art and knowledge production, we have to involve ourselves in re-inventing art institutions. In an essay titled Inventing the (Art) Institution of the Commons, Gerald Raunig writes that “in times of persistent multiple crises, the moves of neoliberal institutional reformism cannot just continue as if it were business as usual”. This does not mean spectacular actions, one-off provocations, or temporary occupations, leaving the old structures unchanged. Rather it means slowly but persistently transforming the institution from within. No more naïve anti-institutionalism, no more cynical theories, no more complaining: it is time to start getting our hands dirty! <read more>
