PRO–SPECTUS: Materials of the Future – How can we speculate
In conjunction with the launch of PROSPECTUS (ARTSCHOOL/UK, 2013), the publishing collective moderates a discursive event, expanding the topics of the book around academies and factories, art schooling and extra-institutional frameworks, into new enquiries of future materials. Themes of secondary knowledge, wildflower poetries, botanical diasporas, artistic agency and experimental analytical models, are addressed in a mix of informal panel discussion, poster distribution, reading and screening, including Fritz Haeg, Mark Allen of Machine Project, Johnnie JungleGuts / Kchung community radio station, and P.collective (John Reardon, Verina Gfader, Ruth Höflich). A limited edition flag by Ruth Höflich will be produced to coincide with the event.
