Collective research

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
