lumbung member Instituto de Artivismo Hannah Arendt (INSTAR) asks Is there such a thing as a “Usological Turn”? The panel will look at the concept of usership in art practices that potentially oppose the realm of spectatorship. The Usological turn seems to capture the dissatisfaction of artists whose works are not created just to be looked at in awe but situate themselves as part of a broader usership.
INSTAR and their guests will look at how these practices welcome use, misuse, transformation, and repurposing, challenging old categories such as ownership, authorship, spectatorship, and intellectual property rights.
