How do artists work today? How do they speak about their method? How can one make a start with documenting, discussing and sharing the hybrid and heterogeneous practices that underpin the performing arts today? How can the informal and embodied discourses, as well as the implicit knowledge they carry, find a wider recognition and accessibility? A series of monthly salons, organized by Sarma on different locations in Brussels, create a live research environment for makers and researchers to address issues of new artistic practices and discourses.

In the Thematics “-18/+65 Politics of the An-Aged” at Bains Connective, artists and researchers develop in the course of two months artistic practices with a participatory dimension in a local social context. The focus on ‘non-productive’ ages yields several questions regarding time. Who has time and who spends it? In what ways? How can one ‘author’ one’s time within the ‘authorized’ time alotted by our society? Can one actually ‘produce’ meaningful time? What about free time, quality time, collective time, public time, alternative time, marginal time, losing time, wasting time? Transgression, loitering, procrastination? Volunteer’s work and the right to useful unemployment? How do artistic practices put these issues in perspective?
