So, while we are fixing the last details of our collaborative actions, we can think more deeply about the process of creating works that can involve local communities and connect people at the corners of Europe.
The Participation Lab with Phil Wood, Nedyalko Delchev ans Adam Jeanes, has been an interesting reflection about “how” we can invite people to participate in our projects and what’s the artstic, cultural and ethic meaning of participation.
And also, it was really fundamental to establish, with Phil Wood, the delicate shift between co-creation and manipulation, the processes can be multiple:
- artists and the public co-create
- the public initiates and the artists enacts
- artists initiate and the public takes part
- the public is assigned and informed
- the public is tokenised
- the public is decoration
- the public is manipulated
