EASA - HOSPITALITY, FINDING THE FRAMEWORK
Talk by Gro Sarauw at the European Architecture School Assembly.
Gro Sarauw has been invited to speak about her role as an artist, architect, and organiser of a union for young artists, curators and critics in Denmark.
In moments of wishful collective thinking, we speak of deep space and time, but we are not able to act in depth of spectres of these crises. We may be able to visualise and describe in words what global crises call for, as is evident in much contemporary art that must, in order to be contemporary, capture this moment - as these crises are the only things that matter - as if the multiple global crises is being unified to one single universal art project.
Alongside presenting her role working with THE WINTER OFFICE Gro Sarauw’s paper/presentation also speaks of her ongoing artistic research seeking to redefine our approach to contemporary art and the way that knowledge is distributed, by examining ongoing practices in which technological articulation and thinking holds a progressive — if not revolutionary potential. As a result of this research, conducted particularly during a time when arguably we are facing the ‘end of the art school’ as we know it, she proposes an alternative ‘art school’: a ‘re-engineered’ version.
