“Relationships to the other does not proceed through identification with a preexisting icon, inherent to each individual. The image is carried by a becoming other, ramified in becoming animal, becoming plant, becoming machine and, on occasion, becoming human.” Felix Guattari
How is contemporary aesthetic production affected by interactions and relations among its productive agencies?
In post-Fordist and post-human conditions of creative and artistic labour, what is the impact of collaborative realms on the production of aesthetic and cultural discourses?
To what extent can we link the value of cultural and artistic production to the specificities of the relations underneath it? To which field of relations (collaborators, friends, akin humans?) can we ascribe the specific relation between artists and curators?
The research investigates different artistic and curatorial approaches to sociality as a productive skill, and it will be conducted through a series of conversations where communication, based on language and affinities, will be recorded and analysed in a television-like set.
