The ICA Public Marketplace

The ICA Public Marketplace

27 Jul 2017

Are non-hierarchical and collective modes of working possible within a structured organization such as the Institute of Contemporary Arts? 

Undergirding the possibilities for egalitarian principles that the In formation programme examines, the ICA Student Forum organise a one-day marketplace to explore collective modes of working. Using the etymology of the word 'forum' (from the Latin for 'public marketplace') as its starting point, ICA Public Marketplace challenges the conventional meaning of the word 'market' by collectively producing knowledge, and sharing and exchanging ideas, rather than consuming culture. 

The ICA Public Marketplace consists of five market stalls, each inviting direct participation from audiences, curators, artists and contributors, blurring the boundaries between these predefined roles.   

Produced by you, Cristina Vasilescu, Elisabeth Del Prete, Håkon Lillegraven, Jakob Rowlinson, Johanna Hardt, Marcel Darienzo and Natasha Trotman.
