An attempt to use alternative geography to explore narratives and space

Free School workshop with visual artists Sherif el Azma and Malak Helmy (Cairo) /


Visual artists Sherif el Azma and Malak Helmy hold a four-days workshop with the students of the Intermedia Department at the University of Fine Arts between November 23 and 26 2011.

The workshop is a practice oriented format of the Free School for Art Theory and Practice

The workshop will function as a laboratory-like environment to maintain a conceptualization/ discussion with the intention to form a strong grounding from which to create a time-based collective work (made by the group involved). Time-based media may involve sound, video, performance, reading/lecture (or a multi-media piece) that has a sequential structure that runs with time. A specific space/location within Budapest will be chosen through discussion with the group, so that focus on that specific geography can be both used as part of a narrative construction and/or a base to consider different representational strategies when looking at a space more phenomenologically. Actual production will take place gradually during the three days of the workshop.

The Middleman part II: Dead Authors and Flexible Personalities /


Date: May 18-20, 2007
Place: KÉK - Hungarian Contemporary Architecture Centre - Budapest, VII. Nefelejcs u.26.

Application deadline with motivational letter to the office@tranzitinfo.hu address is May 13, 2007.

The topic of the seminar is mediation and the agency of the intermediary in the context of advanced global capitalism. We have previously been writing about the representation of the curator in contemporary discourse, in the light of the historian Fernand Braudel’s assertion that the capitalist market as we know it was instituted when middlemen started to control access to the marketplace. That, perhaps, is why the middleman throughout modernity has been viewed with suspicion (to the Marxist, for example, production has always been preferred to mediation).
