TALKS Loop fair 2018

The LOOP Talks 2018 are now available on our video channel.

What about Production? II

Artistic creation is irremediably bound to production. The relationship between the conceptualization of an artwork and the processes through which it takes form – be it material or immaterial –, is complex and worth investigating. Six years after a first edition of the talks titled “What About Production?”, LOOP proposed to review that same question in light of the current cultural and economic panorama.

While trying a definition of what production means today (the conceptualization of a work? the manufacturing? the preliminary idea? the final product? an individual act? a collective effort? the hybridization of disciplines and means?), the Talks looked at the still slippery boundaries between artists’ films and cinema – and the related differences in terms of production and circulation -, and explored the role of artists, gallerists and collectors as producers.
