STRUCTURE
Period of 4 weeks Art Space at Agora’s top floor – 120 sq. meter in a industrial building in Neukölln Berlin 7 artists are selected through open call. 4 variety of interventions with 1 facilitator per week. About the interventions: Interventions happen once a week and it is lead by a member of Agora Collective - the processes are never top-down - the idea is to treat the member as co-learners. Throughout the weeks, Agora Collective members provoke smalls interventions to the group related to their domain of research, in order to build bridges, generate inputs and propose working tasks to the participants and their projects.

WEEK 1 // CREATING A GROUP How to create situations that encourage collaboration?

WEEK TWO // RE-MIX How to compose collaborative actions within individual artistic practices?

WEEK THREE // NETWORK What are the key elements that could provoke partnership between people?

WEEK FOUR // OUTCOME How can the group define a consensus of displaying and presenting the process? The outcome (display of the process experienced during the program) is decided by the group during the process: it can be anything - an art show, a public intervention, a creative event, a dinner, a party, etc.

PEOPLE Conceived by Agora Art Collective - A small group of artists and thinkers coming from many disciplines and backgrounds and while it retains a small, core group from project to project Agora Collective is also constantly inviting new members to meet the challenges of a new work the program Affect refers, to the influence, a change has on something else. It is not from today that artists are influenced and inspired by the relationships and encounters experienced throughout their lives. Interferences and interactions between persons can create special circumstances that are crucial for artistic development and certainly affect the way one relates to production.

AFFECT is a program designed by Agora Collective based on collaborative practices – Agora’s artists open their art space for 7 international artists – from all field of arts – who aim to challenge and incorporate new layers to their own projects. The program proposes a skill-sharing format in which Agora Collective intends, as a catalyser, to cause/ propose/create a review of perspective mainly through discussions, exercises, reading sessions, workshops and living collectively.

For Agora Collective the program shows itself as a potential opportunity to formalize daily situations experienced in the space.
