Exit Strategies: Challenging Productivism in Contemporary Capitalism and Art

When you hear “exit strategies” what do you think of first? Iraq and environs? The neo-liberal mindset, its wanton growth-cures-all productivism? Or maybe, depending on the extent of your Napoleon complex, exodus from the intellectual bankruptcy of the mainstream artworld? This project seeks to imagine gangplanks out of contemporary warfare, capitalism, and art, not necessarily in that order.

About n.e.w.s.

n.e.w.s (http://northeastwestsouth.net) was launched at ISEA 2008 in Singapore at The Substation. n.e.w.s. is a collective online platform for the analysis and development of art-related activity, drawing upon contributions from around the globe, bringing together different voices, accents and outlooks from the North, East, West and South. n.e.w.s. reflects geographic diversity and facilitates a framework for collaboration, content and visions of change from outside the normal parameters of established art world networks. n.e.w.s. offers space for a potential series of global dialogues, transactions and collaborations concerning art and its discourse. Content is curatorially determined: images, texts, podcasts, livestream and sound archives provide documentation of discussions, works or new media. Contributors change during the course of the year depending on interests and time. n.e.w.s. structures these contributions in the form of a blog/archive (images and text), regular online forums on diverse subjects ranging from Asian Biennials, an Internet for introverts to the paradoxes of slackerdom, on error and errorism and remuneration for usership. Building upon shared knowledge and past references, contributors engage with others’ practices. Multilingual translation, tagging and commentary contextualise the contributions and open up new possibilities; collaboration in the form of future projects such as our forthcoming publication and the Shadow Search Project.
