being together apart - gesprek: 05/06/2017

During his stay in the MeetFactory, Stijn Van Dorpe has been researching forms of ideology that offer a counterweight for the presumed natural and as such invisible ideology of neoliberalism. Van Dorpe invited different Prague based ideological groups that all assume a radical approach towards different inequalities (caused by capitalist society), to have a common meeting and to discuss some thorny issues. The outcome of this discussion will be visualized by a huge fabric, assembled by sewing during a week of collective meetings. The fabric will be created into a quilt of different ideological signs and positions of the group's together with marks of how the group’s relate to each other and actual solutions for different political challenges. By bringing these people together around the central democratic values of equality and freedom, the artist (re)installs a fictional, utopian political model, a model that offers alternatives for today's status quo. On Saturday the 10th during the open studio at 8.30 pm, the fabric formation will give rise to a public discussion.
