BEGIN:VCALENDAR VERSION:2.0 CALSCALE:GREGORIAN PRODID:iCalendar-Ruby VERSION:2.0 BEGIN:VEVENT DESCRIPTION:

Arte Útil in Spanish roughly translates as usef ul art\, but also suggests art as a device or tool. Arte Útil imagines\, creates and implements socially beneficial outcomes. The Ar te Útil Lab is a working laboratory that will test hypotheses on the u sefulness of art.

\n

The artworks in the Arte Útil Lab are pr opositions to generate and refine our thinking through public conversation. The Lab contains projects that will be activated\, as well as archival mat erial culled from our ongoing research of existing projects. During the Lab \, resident artists\, working groups\, and public discussions will test hyp otheses\, furthering the conversation and realizing new and existing Ar te Útil.

\n

The Arte Útil Lab is the first part of a yea r-long investigation initiated by the artist Tania Bruguera that includes a n online archive\, an association of Arte Útil practitioners\, an open-call\, a publication\, and a series of public projects and debates cul minating in the transformation of a building at the Van Abbemuseum in the N etherlands into the Museum of Arte Útil in the fall of 2013.

HYPOTHESES EVENTS

\n

The Lab will host public workshops testing hypotheses critical to form ulating the principals of Arte Útil including questions of aesthet ics\, ethical responsibility\, sustainability\, reproducibility and accessi bility under these four sections: Aest-ethics: Moral Aesthetics in Arte Útil\; Access &\; Replication Mechanisms\; Project Ecosystem Manag ement\; and Usefulness as Ideology. Hypotheses will be tested by bringing e xperts/practitioners in to challenge or support these questions and by anal yzing the case studies in the Lab. The events will be recorded in a lab boo k that will enter the archive.
