“MAKING INSTITUTIONS POROUS” : CONDITIONS FOR THE PRODUCTION OF ART AND THE ART OF PRODUCING — Since 2013, Alexandra Baudelot, together with her colleagues Dora García and Mathilde Villeneuve, is co-director of Les Laboratoires d’Aubervilliers, an arts centre located in the banlieues of the north of Paris—an industrial workers melting pot and immigration hub. This exceptional place for art and research, projects and theory welcomes, as the team puts it, artistic practices rather than artistic disciplines. And more importantly, at les Labos, art is confronted with what happens outside of the artistic context, relating artistic practice to the neighbourhood and to the people who live in Aubervilliers.
In EDITION NO. 21 of the ATW TALKS, Alexandra Baudelot will discuss les Labos’ approach to the production of art and the art of producing with ATW member of staf Bernhard Siebert. The talk will present the institution in Aubervilliers including some of the artistic projects that have been developed at the location in the last years. Moreover, the discussion will aim for more general questions, touching on the possibilities and limits of site-specifcity, on the expectations of artists, producers, and audiences in this context, and on ideal working and co-working conditions for artistic production.
