Against-ing the curatorial: four methods for an outsourced field

Online (with breaks!)

Welcome to a discussion exploring some of the methods that have developed within the collaborative practice-based research - "Against the Outsourced Body".

The seminar will be held with discussants Sara Greavu and Marta Malo de Molina.

Here is some of the materials we will discuss alongside a short introduction into some of the different collective practices.

Sara Greavu is a curator, writer and organiser and is Curator of Visual Arts at Project Arts Centre, Dublin. Previous curatorial and development roles include Centre for Contemporary Art Derry~Londonderry, VOID Gallery, and Outburst Arts, Belfast; in addition to working independently. In CCA she initiated the two-year residency programme, Our Neighbourhood, which engaged with local communities of place and communities of interest, alongside artists Sarah Pierce and Sarah Browne. In 2019/2020, in partnership with artist Andrea Francke, she developed Knowledge is Made Here, an alternative pedagogical practice, produced with trans and non-binary young people. Institutional and independent projects have included artists such as Renate Lorenz & Pauline Boudry and Phil Collins, and new commissions by Aideen Doran and Eimear Walshe, among others.

Marta Malo de Molina is a free-lance translator, activist, researcher and mother living in Vallecas, a working-class neighbourhood in Southern Madrid (Spain). Since 1999, she has been committed to the development of theoretical discourse on power, gender, borders and governmentality, as well as to grassroots action-research and pedagogical practices. In 2004, she was responsible for the edition of a collective book on militant research practices: Nociones Comunes. Experiencias y ensayos entre Investigación y Militancia [Common Notions. Experiences and Trials at the Crossroads of Research and Militancy]. Her collaborative projects include Precarias a la deriva [Precarious Women Workers Adrift], an action research project on female precarity by precarious women workers (2003-2007), and Manos Invisibles [Invisible Hands], an ongoing collaborative research project on neoliberal governmentality. In the post-15M context, she has got involved in the establishment of Escuela de Afuera [School from Outside], which aims to develop new pedagogical tools to decolonize our ways of knowing, building transversal and unusual connections between the university and its outskirts.
