During the fourth day of Post-Precarity Autumn Camp, the notions of dependency, wasted time, refusal, and selflessness in the artistic working life have been explored through the workshops prepared by Art Goss and The Long Tail of Art (Caradt).
Curriculum Veto, a workshop facilitated by Art Goss, was aimed at rethinking the concept of CV (Curriculum Vitae) through all of the aspects of an artist’s working life that eventually don’t make the cut into the standardized narrative of professional self-presentation. Participants reflected on all of the things they refused to do in their career, as well as all the labour that didn’t fit into the CV form but was somehow necessary for their creative practice and development.
During lunch, participants discussed the policies and practices in the local arts and culture sector with the council member of the municipality of Hoorn, Samir Bashara. Following that, The Long Tail of Art held a workshop that explored the similarities between the art world and the immune system, which illuminated the importance of care, interdependency, and responsibility in collective artistic practices. The last activity of the day encompassed the guided visit to the West-Fries Museum.
