‘Mutual Speculation & Singular Fantasies’ by Katherine Clarke
The legacy of conceptual art has enabled artists to refine modes of practice that can, at the same time be speculative critical investigations and creative interventions. Within the process of urban regeneration, the artist is therefore able to map the existing territory and to exhume the hidden or potential values a community may bring to the identity of new places or revision of old ones.
The talk presents three art projects that are both strategic investigations and proposals for change. In each project the analysis of the existing social conditions are in themselves creative acts that seek to momentarily transform a situation in order to make space for mutual speculation.
