Collective research

Ghent: How to Live Together
Grace Ndiritu, together with Caveat's legal specialist, immersed herself in the history of a former monastery in Ghent and its users. The proposed sale of parts of the building has met criticism. The artist organises a series of activities at Kunsthal Gent around her research that can be seen at Kunsthal throughout this autumn and will keep growing. The aim is to find a peaceful resolution to the situation that has been building, in the framework of a Truth and Reconciliation process
07/09 – 10/12/2021

Caveat, an artistic research on the ecology of artistic practice
Caveat is a collective research project that focuses on the legal and social-economic frameworks in which art workers operate, and the precarious conditions this generates. The project aims to redefine the contract as a tool for actively reconfiguring relations in the field, and as an instrument toward self-emancipation. Caveat is convened by Jubilee, in partnership with Open Source Publishing, No New Enemies and Été 78
