How do we create a new form of collective being? How do we reframe dominant forms of knowledge? In New Models and Future Forms, Abhijan Toto (Curatorial Intensive Alumnus, Bangkok '18), discussed with Mari Spirito (Curatorial Intensive Alumna, Inhotim '12), collective forms of engagement, beyond only the exhibitionary, as ways to reduce cultural consumption and extraction.
The two also discussed their upcoming collaboration, A Few In Many Places 2021, a group exhibition presented by Spirito's Protocinema held across six cities, Seoul, Bangkok, Istanbul, New York, San Juan, and Guatemala City, which addresses re-learning, collective practice, and breaking historical cycles of violence. A video with closed-captioning will be available on our website soon.
