public utility - last informations 

>From 8 to 16 February Kombirama will be the scene of "public utility", an
event which will look at independent artistic experience and
non-institutional work connections, and for one week will provide a
platform for the various people, collectives, groups and exhibition room
projects working in Europe. "public utility" is intended to offer an
overview of work in the various countries and serve to generate
discussion on a range of topics which interest us in this connection. 

Our initial suggestions for topics are: 
- Critical presentations of individual projects, of the initiatives,
  subjects, work areas, objectives, motivations and the results achieved
  by the individual groups, projects and exhibition rooms.
- "Lessons in the history of art", prepared by different people/groups,
  who are approached in advance, looking back at particular interesting
  points in the recent history of art (60's, 70's, 80's and 90's),
  reflections on the respective approaches, re-interpretation,
  re-assessment, indicating developments. 
- Thematic blocks, input and discussion about he artist's view of
  her/himself, the role of artists, social goals/functions, relationship
  to the public: between being noticed and being included, solidarity and 
- And of course social events like excursion, bar, club visits and party.

public utility online:
Version 1.2 of infozone online-magazine on the Kombirama-Server is being
developed in parallel with the event "public utility", to be held on
8-16 February 1997. The objective is to document the whole project on the
Internet in this way, and thus to make accessible to interested groups
all the information, statements, discussions and experiences brought
together specially for this event. Public utility online comprises on the
one hand a record of the people, groups and projects taking part,
including links to other sites on the web and on the other hand
contributions of material relating to the topics discussed, such as texts,
statements, theses, lectures, records of discussions and a range of free
contributions which may arise during the course of the week in February
and shortly afterwards.
