Waste/d is an ongoing art and pedagogy research project on social and artistic potential in times of extended crisis, by the Temporary Academy of Arts, PAT (Elpida Karaba, Despina Zefkili, Yota Ioannidou, Vangelis Vlahos).
Waste/d involves research and production of new theory and artistic projects, creating alliances among practitioners from different localities, as well as art and scientific fields and taking various forms (books, lectures, interviews, seminars, performances, live events) including an exhibition in early 2022.
PAT will be taking over the artistic directorship of State of Concept for a year to develop Waste/d (March 2022-March 2023)
The Temporary Academy of Arts was initiated by Elpida Karaba in 2014. PAT (the abbreviation of Temporary Academy of Arts) is a mobile academy of arts and at the same time an art project of experimental education that adopts mechanisms from various systems of knowledge and art practices for the production and transmission of artistic programs and the construction of their historicity. PAT is a para-institution engaged with a range of activities involved in different levels of institution affiliations. It depends on an ‘expanded’ curating, incorporating exhibitions, events and publishing projects persistently addressing the relationship of art and its institutions, the labour involved and the public.
