Self-Organised (Eds. Stine Hebert & Anne Szefer Karlsen)
Open Editions, London, 2013

Co-editor of Self-organised, Stine Hebert, will give a brief introduction to the editorial process of the book, as well as conflicting definitions of and approaches to self-organization from different localities in relation to the contemporary art context. A discussion will follow. What are the shifting implications of the term as working conditions become more precarious? What does self-organization suggest about the relationship between the self and the community? Is self-organization a radical alternative that leads to deserting the institutions? How is self-determination attained and maintained among neo-liberal agendas and right-wing populism?
