Part of Amsterdam Art weekend, Initiated by Humans of the Institution – UiB
On the 23th of November Chapter Thirteen hosted a lecture by Nancy Adajania and Ranjit Hoskote. Benjamin Fallon, part of Chapter Thirteen, introduces the intention of inviting these speakers to Glasgow with an explanation on why Chapter Thirteen was founded in the first place, to counter the perfunctory institutional methods and to include new voices in this process. Nancy Adajania and Ranjit Hoskote research exactly these processes in what they call the nth field, the non-static complex transcultural exchange.
From our reflection:
The ‘Word/Mouth body’ was formed for the event; this attracted curiosity and opened up the dialogue to interested wider audiences. The body consisted of the group, the artist and our methods of communication. The group communicated about our process and ideas through our network. The identity was also followed through on Instagram as a platform as our main social platform. The instagram functioned as a way to test and share ideas or references that did not have feature in the publication and as a way to visualise how these ideas were flowing between the members of the group.
The following needs more thinking: How can existing media be used in creating a single voice from a polyphonic construction.
