This is a fascinating note, and one that I still can not comprehend in the context of this reading, but where is there a boundary between “art” and the role of “social practice”. Yes, art is social practice and exists in every moment ...

ABOUT

ABOUT | Social Art Practices | Scoop.it

On Saturday, February 28, 2015, Yale University will host a major symposium titled The Legal Medium: New Encounters of Art and Law. Leading artists and thinkers of our time will gather to engage in a series of panels, presentations, performances and an art exhibition. 
          Rather than focusing on the practice of art law, this symposium will examine law as an artistic medium, in and from which artists create. It will focus on how artists encounter, take advantage of and seek to mold law.

          SPEAKERS
          Amy Adler, Jack Balkin, Tania Bruguera, Mary Ellen Carroll, Joshua Decter, Keller Easterling, Liam Gillick, Kenny Goldsmith, Tehching Hsieh, David Joselit, Robert Post, Sergio Muñoz Sarmiento, Doris Sommer, & Laura Wexler

Empathy School | Experimental Media and Performing Arts Center (EMPAC)

Empathy School | Experimental Media and Performing Arts Center (EMPAC) | Social Art Practices | Scoop.it
An immersive performance set on a bus driving through post-industrial landscape surrounding Troy, NY. You will board at sunset and hear stories about time and separation. The stories will be accompanied by an ambient score that respond to the movement of the bus, subtly changing with shifts in speed and direction. This EMPAC-commissioned work was conceived a year ago, while Aaron Landsman lived in central Illinois as his wife completed graduate school at the University of Illinois. Landsman’s work often took him out of town; to get home he flew back into Chicago, and rode a night bus for three hours, overhearing riders’ stories as they spoke to relatives on the phone or talked to one another. The stories were of financial desperation and separated families, reflecting the difficult circumstances of those left in parts of America that were being abandoned by the post-industrial economy. Produced in collaboration with visual artist and filmmaker Brent Green, Empathy School combines theater, travel, and audio in a contained space where listening to another person’s stories is the only possible act of togetherness. Performed by Jim Findlay.

Green Art Lab Alliance | DutchCulture | TransArtists

Green Art Lab Alliance | DutchCulture | TransArtists | Social Art Practices | Scoop.it
Green Art Lab Alliance In partnership with Julie’s Bicycle TransArtists desk has developed a European wide program dedicated to promoting environmental sustainability and how that can be challenged in practical, ethical, and artistic ways across cultural communities in Europe. Based on the concept of a ‘knowledge alliance’ we are building a collaborative project with cultural organizations and artists all over Europe, and Georgia. We believe it is time that people working in the arts take responsibility in innovative and artistic ways. In the world of arts we shouldn’t see environmental sustainability as a side issue, but as an essential part of its practice. What that exactly implies for the visual arts and design, is what this project will investigate on different levels and in close collaboration with designers, artists and scientists across Europe.

They Take Care of Our Loved Ones, But Who Takes Care of Them?

Video by Studio REV- featuring Marisa Jahn. Produced in collaboration with Creative Time Reports, 2014. Natalicia Tracy came to Boston from Brazil in her late teens, lured by a family that offered to provide food and shelter in exchange for her labor as a nanny and housekeeper. She found herself working around the clock, earning $25 a week and sleeping on a three-season porch regardless of the weather. Her employers took away her passport and wouldn’t let her call her family in Brazil. Working two jobs, Tracy eventually raised enough money to put herself through school. Years later she became the executive director of the Brazilian Immigrant Center, a nonprofit organization that represents, supports and organizes Brazilian day laborers, migrant workers and domestic workers in the Boston metropolitan region and Connecticut. Tracy is one of many former and current domestic workers who, by speaking out, have become leaders of today’s movement for domestic worker justice. Domestic work touches everyone’s lives, making much of what we value possible. By caring for children and the elderly and cleaning homes, domestic workers allow parents to go to work and enable families to have leisure time. Yet despite the contributions they make to our society, domestic workers in the United States have shockingly few rights. Most do not have the right to file charges if they’ve experienced abuse. Most do not have the right to file for unemployment (that’s because at least 70 percent do not have written job descriptions or contracts). As a workforce concealed in the privacy of the home, 36 percent of live-in workers report that they have been verbally harassed in the previous year (PDF), and many others have been threatened, subjected to racial slurs or sexually abused. Despite this high rate of abuse, most domestic workers do not have any legal recourse.
