Curating as Collaborative Practice 2/ DREAM CITY [FR]
Within On focus: Communal Knowledge at Large, a laboratory of three events taking place at key intervals took on a workshop approach. Entitled, Curating as a Collaborative Practice, the laboratory provided ESAV students, local practitioners and other members of the public with the opportunity to observe, debate, and participate in a dialogue around three case studies, which take as a source their immediate context and the communities that inhabit them.
Meeting an urgency to reclaim public spaces confined by officialdom and its institutions, Dream City is a bi-annual contemporary arts festival in the medina of Tunis, Tunisia, that aims to reimagine the city. Co-founder of arts association, L’art Rue, and director of the festival, Sofiane Ouissi and artistic director Jan Goossens, lead a session delving into the festival’s concept and materialisation.
