Making-visible is a prerequisite for collective knowledge - and each mode of production makes their own, be it through visual or other channels. AXP C4 aims to question the differences and similarities between science and the plastic arts in terms of making-visible. In a playful examination of the scientific format of the conference, work and interventions are seen through open debates about science, art and architectural production. In itself a specific format of making-visible, the video at the same time documents what happened on occasion of C4 and shapes the retrospective perception of the event.
Case 4 is co-directed by Jan Bovelet and Luis Berríos-Negrón, and contains contributions by Caitlin Berrigan, Luis Berríos-Negrón, Jan Bovelet, Rick Buckley, Eric Ellingsen, Tim Gough, Mendel Heit, Alexandra Hopf, Anna Kostreva, Boris Kajmak, Miodrag Ku?, Fotini Lazaridou-Hatzigoga, Pia Marais, MIT Museum, Olivia Plender, The Product, Hans-Jörg Rheinberger, Carrie Roseland, Salottobuono, Gabi Schillig, George Stiny.
This feuilleton is both a sporadic publication and a loose collective operating under the aegis of The Anxious Prop. That which is common is the desire to work with two looping, yet sequential parameters: 1. We are into the labor of producing forms, shapes, and figures as a method to explore collective knowledge by challenging the discourse of digital fabrication; 2. These forms, shapes, and figures emerge with the disposition to be activated, triggering their condition as theatrical objects and their consequent instrumental or anthropological role in the world.
