The Exhibition is in Transit is an ongoing series of publications edited by Joe Rowley and published by Ephemeral Care. The project seeks to tie together narratives to present a patchwork of responses and considerations of the possibilities and challenges of exhibition making in an increasingly digital, content driven and COVID affected world. This session takes the form of a reading group and allows for an open discussion around the themes and contributions presented in The Exhibition is in Transit vol1 and their connection to the themes of GIBCA 2021 - The Ghost Ship and the Sea Change with the editor Ephemeral Care team and contributors.
What is whiteness, and why should we acknowledge it? How can we identify the phenomenon that is whiteness, and in what ways does it occur in our day-to-day lives? This workshop with Ephemeral Care and Hanna Skoglar, literary scholar with an interest in critical whiteness studies, centers around the possible ways to lay bare whiteness as a phenomenon and how we can critically scrutinise it using several theorists and cultural and social occurrences. By connecting the worlds historical and colonial heritage with the present, and by shedding light on its relevance, this workshop aims to offer tools to those who wish to approach whiteness as a phenomenon in a critically empowered way.
Hosted by Godisfabriken, Göteborg, SE. Vegan lunch provided.
November 6 & 7
Ephemeral Care will lead two workshop sessions exploring the theme community. On November 6th the workshop will be digital. The workshop on November 7th will be in person in Göteborg, Sweden, hosted by Godisfabriken.
In the workshops we will think about how we define "community" as cultural organisations and how we service, support, communicate with and become part of the communities which surround us.
Each workshop is a full day with a vegan lunch provided to participants.
Ephemeral Care's first Open Call focuses on this liminal, potential and precarious time in the cultural field. This call seeks reflections on how our cultural communities, outputs, ethics, structures, hopes, fears and realities could be and have been reformatted. We are seeking submissions across digitally presented media to be published across Ephemeral Care's online presence.
Application is free of charge. Deadline is rolling.
Ephemeral Care focuses on ethics, practice and strategies in artist-led and self-organised projects.
