Come to BAK on Saturday 26 October 2019 for a public program with artist Carmen Papalia. In the spirit of Open Access, a conceptual framework for accessibility developed by Papalia, the public is invited into a collectively envisioned space emerging from the principles of trust and mutual care.

The public program consists of an inclusive, performative presentation by several of the participants from the training of that week (Training X: Organizing Accessibility from the Grassroots) moderated by Papalia himself. The performance offers an alternative perspective on, and practice of, accessibility and public engagement of cultural institutions.

Carmen Papalia is an artist who uses organizing strategies and improvisation to address access to public space, the art institution, and visual culture.



Tickets: 
€6 normal, €3 student discount. Ticket includes entry to exhibition Trainings for the Not-Yet on Saturday 26 October. Book your tickets via Eventbrite.
 
Participants of the training by Carmen Papalia can attend this event for free.
