Protoacademy: 'Alternative Strategies' Cork

November 16–1 December 2011

The Protoacademy 'Alternative Strategies' Cork is an 'umbrella-term' for a continually changing, international organisation that brings a collective of artists and theorists together to form a forum for progressive thought on art, creativity and learning. The Protoacademy takes a more definite shape periodically through a series of events which take place in different cities throughout Europe. This becomes an intense period of production and discussion inspired by its location and intended to act as a catalyst for further future contact and participation.

Protoacademy 'Alternative Strategies' Cork will include an exhibition installation, a public lecture by Charles Esche (Director of Rooseum Center for Contemporary Art, Malmö, Sweden) and a public lecture and forum chaired by Dr. Sheperd Steiner.
