Disclosures – London

29-30/03/2008 participating with Critical Practice in Disclosures, Gasworks, London

We participated in an event called Disclosures on the 29th – 30th March 2008.

Disclosures seeks to scrutinise the notion of openness across fields of cultural production at large. A first reading of openness refers to situations in which the viewer, reader, listener or internet user becomes emancipated through egalitarian participation, diffuse collaborative authorship and/or the breaking down of hierarchical and social boundaries
It was organised by Anna Colin and Mia Jankowicz of Gasworks. See the programme here.
Critical Practice contributed directly to Phase 1 and Phase 3 of the programme.
