What does it mean to inhabit the temporary?
Where do we find the local, when we are constantly on-the-move?
Who forms our community, when we exist inside a global network?
And what does it mean to be an artist in today’s digitalised and nomadic world?

As precarity escalates in the global city, ways of living, modes of working, and networks of people have become hyper-mobile. Taking place at Gasworks, with its international artist-residency programme set in Vauxhall, a rapidly developing area of London, Itinerant Assembly takes this context as its starting point.


Over the course of four months, this curated project unfolded outwards in 5 assemblies: momentarily bringing together diverse practitioners and publics in real and virtual space to reflect on our contemporary nomadic condition and to question the productive potential of the temporary. Distilled in a series of graphic manuals, every Assembly is open to reactivation by anyone.
居住在临时之中,意味着什么?
当我们不断上路时,我们去何处寻找”在地”?
当我们都身处一个全球化的网络中时, 谁组成了我们的共同体?
而在今天这样一个电子化并游牧着的世界里,做一个艺术家意味着什么?

全球的城市生活正在加剧动荡,生活、工作和人际网络都变得极易变动。“流动集合”在Gasworks这个运行着国际艺术家驻地项目的机构开展,并把机构和其所在的
正迅速发展的Vaxuhall区域当做自己的出发点。

在四个月的过程里,这个策展项目会逐渐展开形成一系列的“集合”:集合#1为与Gaswork驻地艺术家为期一个月的采访,跟踪驻地过程中的创作变化。集合#2为柏林艺术家Emma Haugh带领的两日“读书剧团”工作坊,以身体和行为回应Hakim Bay的文本The Autonomous Zone;集合#3为艺术家组合They Are Here带领的移动工作坊;集合4是指派成员分布于全球的艺术家组合Play(groud)less使用虚拟现实技术创作装置作品,探索赛博空间中的聚集;集合#5 Hackpad将以线上讨论的方式整合前期实践并引发新的讨论,在伦敦的Gasworks, Green Rooms, Second Home三处空间同时展开并以行为艺术回应在虚拟空间中的讨论。

这些集合在实际和虚拟空间中和暂时汇集不同的参与者,一同反思我们当今的游牧情况,讨论人们如何在暂时聚集中生产。不同“集合”会被提炼进操作手册并被放在网站上,以期被再次激活。
