PAM x Misoogst

PAM (Platform for Audiovisual and Media Arts) has grown out of a diverse assembly of organizations and practitioners working with moving image, sound art, or media art. PAM invites anyone who works in media arts to meet, to discuss common issues and to share knowledge and tools about the development, production, distribution, presentation, and reflection of audiovisual and media arts.

The next PAM session is organized on the 16th of September 2022 at 15h in the context of Misoogst, an interactive meeting in Cas-co in Leuven of initiatives and artists who work on green structures, ecology and (urban) agriculture. At the crossroads of art and agriculture, they present their practices and provide insight into their relationship with all non-human entities that surround us.

Werktank invited Katinka de Jonge, Julia Eckhardt, Christoph De Boeck, Aernoudt Jacobs and Cirkel Mediakunst Leuven. You can join them in a round table about a specific theme.

Katinka de Jonge was supported by STUK in the form of a residency. More info on that residency can be found here.

Sustainable development and ecosystems - Katinka de Jonge

How can the metaphor of an ecosystem contribute to the sustainable development of an art practice or organization? Through various conversational formats, artist and researcher Katinka de Jonge invites you to map your own ecosystem, and thereby reflect on concepts such as sustainability, producing versus decomposing, and non-human influences on an artistic practice.

Katinka de Jonge works as an artist and is a PhD researcher at Hasselt University (BE), where she conducts research about artistic self-organization and artist-run spaces. In her work she explores 'locality', focusing on the complex relations between design and everyday life, and emphasizing polyphony and the function of language and dialogue in specific contexts. This can be a neighbourhood, but also an (art) organization or a specific (oral) history surrounding a place. She works with different media, which are often approached in a participatory way: audio, text, performance and (spatial) installations are recurring forms.

Art/Non-Art Crossover Collaborations Christoph De Boeck and Aernoudt Jacobs

What is your favorite collaboration with a non-artistic partner? It could be a sponsor who lends you some audiovisual material, a scientific institute for your art-science proposal, a hospital or other social services for your community project, local authorities, a city with a Capital of Culture programme, expertise at university or other schools, technical support from an industry, real estate owners for an atelier… let’s exchange tips and experiences!

The discussion is moderated by Christoph De Boeck and Aernoudt Jacobs who have been running Overtoon, a platform for research, production and distribution of sound art and sound-based installation art. Both sound artists have initiated many collaborations with different kinds of actors over the last fifteen years.

Curatorial responsibilities -Julia Eckhardt

Organising and curating implies responsibility, especially when it comes to efforts for diversification and just representation. In what way is this a political rather than an aesthetic question? How far can we go in enlarging the scope of our program, and still stay personally and affectively involved? What practical tools can be useful for feedback on the meaningfulness of curatorial work

Julia Eckhardt is a musician and artistic co-director of Q-O2 workspace in Brussels. As a performer of composed and improvised music she has collaborated with numerous artists, and extensively with Éliane Radigue. She is (co-)author of several publications on aspects of sonic arts and music.
