The aim of the workshop in Trondheim – to share knowledge and
experiences stemming from artistic production taking place beyond
traditional exhibition matrix and inhabiting formats of TV, online
games or rumours rather than the spaces of museums. Through
collaborative analysis and imagination the participants of the workshop
are expected to produce a new identity (for television) of IX Baltic
Triennial aka BMW following the logic of CAC TV, BMW and the workshop
The structure of the workshop consists of the three basic parts:
1. Introduction of several projects with a focus on The IX Baltic
Triennial aka BMW and CAC TV.
2. Watching the selection of:
a) existing CAC TV episodes followed by the session of critique and
b) several films presented on CAC TV (Montewood Hollyverita by Una
Szeemann and Alice in Wonderland or Who is Guy Debord by Robert Cauble)
and exhibited in BMW (All Wrong by Gabriel Lester.)
c) unedited material from BMW exhibition and Rotterdam film festival;
3. Conceptual investigations: finding and formulating the key principles
operating in both projects, analysing their implications and impact,
projecting their possible adaptation and use in a different format and
context. Collaborative imagining and streamlining of the ideas of the
new episode of CAC TV.
4. Practical realisation of the episode: filming, editing, re-editing.
