No arts space acting alone can respond to the diverse and conflicting needs, interests and access requirements of all its stakeholders; no insular effort will suffice to critically embrace future technologies ... Instead we offer a toolkit of architectural and political strategies for knitting arts spaces into a tapestry of creative debate, out of which a new and more sustainable global society might one day rise. Art Spaces Lead Global Ecology of Ideas, Hunter&Gatherer (with Yiannis Kanakakis) Auto Italia South East is pleased to announce Towards a Zoology of spaces, a staged conversation and open debate by Hunter&Gatherer (architect Manuel Shvartzberg and writer Fabian Faltin) with the participation of James Taylor Gallery co-founders Julia Crabtree and Will Evans, Edward Dorrian of Five Years, and SPCMKR founder Timothy Ivison. Hunter&Gatherer's Art Spaces Lead Global Ecology of Ideas reported on a near-future art world constellation of institutional typologies ranging from MOMA franchise expansion in London Heathrow airport to 'grey' art centres which deliver day-care services and gated security for the elderly. Organised as a pragmatic response to their original report, Towards a Zoology of spaces provoke debate amongst self- organised arts spaces operating in contemporary contexts, and to sound out propositions for future methodologies and organisational structures. Hunter&Gatherer will rehearse a staged conversation based upon researches conducted at Auto Italia South East and members of the panel, which will be followed by an open discussion. Hunter&Gatherer www.hunterandgatherer.eu, a democratic two-way collaboration between Architecture Director" Manuel Shvartzberg, and "Intellectual Superintendent" Fabian Faltin founded in 2008.
