Save Event: On Generosity

I've seen this

People who have saved this event:


Jane Frances Dunlop & Mira Loew will be artists in residency as part of I'm not done/2 at Guest Projects in Hackney from 4 – 10 September.


As part of the residency, they will be leading a long table discussion on generosity on 6 September.

Come to listen, to talk, to think with us. 

It is time that we discuss the intimacy that our work together produces, relies on, often exploits. It is time we think about friendship – about love & intimacy – in artistic collaborations. How can we cultivate or encourage a generosity in our exchanges that undermines neoliberal individualism without taking advantage of each other?

Simply, how can we be generous with ourselves and fair with each other? How do we avoid allowing the intimacy that makes our exchanges possible to be exploitative, however kindly? Or is it inevitably? Should lines be drawn and where?

The conversation will take place at Guest Projects from 15.30 until 17.30. Afterwards, it will continue in Victoria Park. 

In preparation for the event, we will be collectively authoring a document with our thoughts, evolving questions and possible references. The document is available here:
