School of Commons (SoC) is a community-based initiative dedicated to the study and development of self-organized knowledge. We promote a broad, integrative understanding of knowledge, and focus on matters surrounding the production and mediation of knowledge with a focus on self-organized practices and knowledge decentralization. Located at the Zurich University of the Arts (ZHdK), the content and position of SoC is defined by our community rather than a predetermined program; research is conducted in our three labs (LEARN, MAPP, and READ), all of which are run as peer-based collaborative endeavours with annually changing members. Our labs bring together a wide range of participants, guests, and contributors who share their curiosity, skills, and visions. We offer personal support, financial resources, and an active community of peers and experts engaged in a wide range of topics. ✨ For more information, check out our website or get in touch!

StoneZone: A meeting point for art professionals working with granite, or stone in general. StoneZone is located at the Westcoast of Sweden, in the centre of the Bohusgranite area. In the spring of 2010 two close friends and collegues in sculpture, Lukas Arons and Tom Flick, were able to purchase an old stone industry in the forrests of Bohuslän at the Swedish westcoast. Since than this neglected and abandoned place has been transformed into a living artspace with temporary exhibitions, artiststudio, stoneworkshop and blacksmithy. StoneZone’s dream to be able to open ‘artist in residence places’ for sculptors and possibly other disciplines will soon become a reality.

Ort Gallery is on a social mission to redefine contemporary visual arts by rejecting the sector’s exclusivity, centring access and equity, and by providing inclusive high quality art experiences. We support this mission with a care-centred approach and give artists, team members, and participants autonomy over their projects. We believe everyone should have access to high quality art experiences and aim to provide that standard by providing exhibition and professional development opportunities to artists, creatives, and community members. We are particularly focused on investing in and engaging with community members of the Balsall Heath area that are often overlooked. We use our space to provide our community with art focused events, activities and volunteering opportunities. We believe that art holds transformative power for mental wellbeing, bridging gaps between communities. We believe that you are never too young, too old or too different to learn a new skill or engage with art. We place Warmth at the heart of all our work. We recognise that galleries are sites of oppression which centre and reproduce white normative and elitist ways of ‘being’ under the supposed guise of neutrality. We are interested in challenging this head on; whilst also committing to creating space for local artists and marginalised community […]

Paper toys, máscaras y productos de papel para creativos y futuros genios Somos diseñadores gráficos egresados en el año 2004, período de progresivo desarrollo de los medios digitales y justo al borde de la explosión e instalación de Internet como medio de comunicación masiva. Durante nuestra formación académica aprendimos muchísimo sobre los medios impresos y con el avanzar del tiempo nos adaptamos rápida y fácilmente a las nuevas tecnologías. En exposiciones, eventos y talleres relacionados con nuestra profesión y junto con el desarrollo artístico nos fuimos familiarizando con el hecho de que a través de internet se estaba compartiendo información entre artistas y profesionales gráficos, en la que se ponían en formato digital plantillas para ser intervenidas por ilustradores y devueltas vía internet, para ser descargadas e impresas en casa u oficinas de diseñadores. En otras palabras, conocimos prontamente los llamados “paper toys, tan famosos hoy en día. Fue allí, en esa área, visualizamos la oportunidad de crear un producto físico, interactivo y lúdico usando medios tradicionales clásicos de impresión para mantener una conexión con el pasado y que a la vez nos permitiera trabajar con artistas de cualquier parte del mundo, traspasando fronteras gracias a los nuevos medios de […]
