Do you like art, meeting other people and participating in cultural debates? Join “7 Walks: From Albisola to Læsø by Vermeir & Heiremans and Luke Mason”
f.eks. warmly invites you to the project “7 Walks: From Albisola to Læsø”, an event-based public artwork initiated by the Belgian artist duo Vermeir & Heiremans in collaboration with legal philosopher Luke Mason. You can join two different events for free. Read more about them at the bottom of this article.
The project consists of a combination of presentations, workshops, and public discussions at Kunsten Museum of Modern Art Aalborg as well as a walking event at the Asger Jorn House on Læsø. 7 Walks: From Albisola to Læsø is a transdisciplinary and research-based art project. The project questions if (re)thinking legal concepts and contesting the absoluteness of property ownership can contribute to more sustainable and equitable governing practices regarding natural and artistic resources. By examining property relations in a more layered way, Vermeir & Heiremans and Mason argue both natural and social commons could be better protected. As a site-specific methodology for both contemplation and a clashing of the minds, the project also investigates walking. The dialogues their project generates highlight art’s social urgency in relationship to the creation and distribution of value, spatial dynamics, commoning approaches, and the discursive potential of expanded (artistic) practices.
