The Second World Congress of Free Artists

The Second World Congress of Free Artists

With humor and wit the authors invite us to join in the slow intellectual burn of unreliable knwoledge and the connundrums of pedagogical promiscuity in an age of transnational capital. Camel Collective's ripe of radical treat expands our conception of "education in art" for a democracy on its knees. -- Jennifer A. Gonzalez, University of California, Santa Cruz 

An incisive and playful analysis of the interrelated commercial, academic, curatorial and hedonistic forces that shape the global contemporary art world. Camel Collective turns the "pedagogical turn" in contemporary art in its head, taking inspiration from Asger Jorn's International Movement for an Imaginist Bauhauss, which attempted to create a spontaneous creative community resistant to pedagigy. The Second World Congress of Free Artists turns academic debate into an open-ended pwrformance that inspires and angers, suggests and unravels, from the political exclusions of today's threatened meritocracy to a series of imaginary future premises that demand us to reconsider the ways our utopian dreams of a free academy mimic the alienate flows of capitalist mobility. -- Karen Kurczynski, University of Massachusetts Amherts
