ArtLeaks Gazette No. 2 - Public Launch and Discussions

While in our previous issue (publication download: ) we sought to bring awareness of the challenges and obstacles of the contemporary art system as a initial, necessary first step in enacting meaningful transformations, with this gazette (publication download: ) we aim to move beyond exposure and breaking the silence, towards ways of engagement – or what does it mean to be agents of change in the art world today? What are the conditions and possibilities of alternative art worlds? How can we engage and use our imagination, avoiding, at the same time, the traps of utopian thinking?

We will be presenting our new issue '(An)Other Art World(s)? Imagination Beyond Fiction' and would like to invite you to attend the events below. Some of the gazette's editors and authors, together with other artists, activists and theorists will facilitate the discussions. Free entrance.

Monday, June 30th at 5pm

Museum of Contemporary Art of Vojvodina (MSUV)
Dunavska 37
Novi Sad, Serbia

Vladan Jeremić will present the gazette, part of the 'FACK MSUV – Performing the Museum as Common'
For more details join the group on fb:

FACK MSUV is an operation of temporary 'liberation' of the museum (it can be conceived too as a sui generis occupation or re- appropriation) with the aim of making it open and freely accessible for use for both local and international (art) community without classical institutional filtering and control 'from the top down'. The event is launched by the mobile art platform F.A.C.K. from Cesena (Italy) in collaboration with 'liberated spaces' MACAO (Milan), Teatro Valle (Rome), SALE.Docks (Venice) and Embros Theatre (Athens) and is realized with the contribution and participation of numerous artists, curators, researchers, activist and citizens from the ex-Yugoslav region and the rest of Europe.

The ArtLeaks Gazette is an activist publication produced by core members of ArtLeaks, an organization founded in 2011 as an international platform for cultural workers where instances of abuse, corruption and exploitation are exposed and submitted to public inquiry. Through our gazette, we stress the urgent need to seriously transform these workers' relationships with the institutions, networks and economies involved in the production,reproduction and consumption of art and culture. We pursue these goals through developing a new approach to the tradition of institutional critique and through fostering new forms of artistic production that might challenge the dominant discourses of criticality and social engagement that tame and contain creative forces.
