The programme of this year 'Gathering on Rehearsing Hospitalities' (Oct 5>8 2022) focuses on practices that deal with the redistribution of power, wealth, and resources within the art field and society at large.
Together with Gemma Medina, we will introduce the evolution of the Asociación de Arte Útil, its archive, and the selection of case studies on display. We will present examples focused on the redistribution of power, resources, and knowledge within and outside the artistic institutional sphere.
