Radical_Hope : bureau annex
Arising from an experiment in 2010, bureau annex is a developing practice for artists, concerned with the production of art in the 'wilderness of urban milieus'.Read more
The interest is to create first an affinity between people 'foreign' to one another and then, as a consequence, work together. This affinity is not there from the outset but man-made by an artificial behaviour: 'hanging out' regularly next and with people and in places at first sight completely unacquainted, the artist becomes present in a reality which naturally wouldn't become familiar. Following up first contact conversations s/he proposes to produce independent art works irregularly and occasionally but continually.
Drawing further on the potential of becoming an urban tradition, bureau annex is producing a next work: back again, a serie's of small video-works.
