Weekly sessions 26 September — 25 October

Over five weeks each of the five artists commissioned for the exhibition, Our House of Common Weeds, curated by Nathalie Boobis, will lead a public session for discussion of their research and work in progress.

The collaboratively generated discussion from each session will feed into the development of Our House of Common Weeds, 27 Oct — 26 Nov, at Res.

Waning crescent moon in Virgo (Tuesday 17 October)
7 — 9pm
Hosted by Fourthland

*Please note that the date of this session has changed from Wednesday 18 to Tuesday 17 October*

This week's session is hosted by the artist collective Fourthland who will focus on nomadic householding as contemporary social feminist practice.

We will be reading sections of the texts, 'Householding amid global crisis' and 'Queering the intimate' by V Spike Peterson, followed by collective improvisation around ideas of kinship. The workshop will use bundles created by the artists as substance for improvisation.

Fourthland (Louise Sayarer and Eva Knutsdotter) is a London-based artist collective that uses objects, ritual, storytelling and enactment to co-create public space and performances. Recent exhibitions and projects BearMotherHouse with Xenia at SPACE, London (2017); Permissible Notations of with Rosalind Fowler at PEER, London (2017); The Storm within Jeremy Deller’s Utopia Treasury, Somerset House, London (2016); back to where we have not quite been, Arnolfini, Bristol (2015); The Collective Tongue, Errant Bodies, Berlin; and everything happens on the street, PEER, London (2015). They have had recent residencies at CASS School of Art and Design, London (2016) and Cabot Institute of Climate Change, Bristol.

Please sign up for free via Eventbrite if you would like to attend so that we have an idea of numbers.

The Future is a Collective Project is a participatory research group, akin to a reading group but not limited to texts. It is grounded in the question: Are we carrying the right tools to shape the future we want and need?

The Future is a Collective Project is a project by Nathalie Boobis that began meeting in 2016 with the aim of collectively viewing, reading, talking and thinking about artworks/texts/books/films/projects to explore the following:

// Marginalised ideas and practices of the past being essential considerations in thinking about the future;
// The future as a tool of fiction for asserting our desires and articulating what is missing or ignored in the present;
// The possibilities of future thinking from the position of ‘the other’

In the interest of moving outside of the Western and patriarchal construction of clock time and its characterisations of past, present and future, meetings are scheduled according to the lunar calendar.
