Strategies for Public Occupation
Text: Detail Daily
The Storefront for Art and Architecture in New York calls for ideas for public occupation – first prize: "the possibility of a new world order".
The New York gallery Storefront for Art and Architecture calls for "Strategies for Public Occupation" - in other words f0r “submissions for projects and strategies that offer a new, creative and productive way of spatial occupation for public demonstrations and actions in cities throughout the world.”
This call for submissions is even for the progressive Storefront for Art and Architecture a rather unusual political competition caused by the Occupy Wall Street movement, which started in New York’s Zucotti Park at the beginning of October.
The objective is to gather “expertise from the various acts of civil occupation throughout the world during the last months.”
Architects, artists and citizens are asked to submit their ideas for “enabling acts of communication and action between the civil society and the structures of economic and political power. “
The deadline for submission is December 1, 2011 and the first prize announced as “the possibility of a new world order.”
The submissions will be exhibited at Storefront for Art and Architecture in New York in December and in the ongoing Storefront Strategies for Public Occupation Archive.
