The second edition of “Independent Art Spaces Beijing” will host independent art projects, no matter if you have a fixed location or are a collective occupying public spaces or private apartments or the digital space. Taking the question of independent art practice in China a step further we want to explore different possibilities of art space and their concepts. In a time, where space is not any more necessarily connected with a locality we want to also show projects of art that happen outside of the institutional system. This years edition will showcase Beijing-based art spaces, but also projects especially created for this year’s edition.

The topic of this years edition will circle around the topic “BE WATER”. A proclamation for a practice that is neither fixed nor controlled, but rather fluid, flexible, essential and omnipresent in the small and big. Water incorporates everything, and everything is incorporated. Water is flexible, it's everywhere, and it's life-sustaining. Water has no shape; instead, it flows where it desires, and it alters its movement and speed as it wishes or as the need requires. Bruce Lee’s mantra, “Be water my friend” calls the ability to become anything you want and take any shape you like. “Be Water” calls for art projects that investigate this ability and make use of it.

The program in the different spaces will include exhibitions, performances, concerts, screenings, and lectures. The variety of programs mirrors the broad spectrum that Beijing’s and international independent space scene. The week of “Independent Art Spaces 2016” will take place between August 20th -28th.

第二届“北京独立艺术空间”将呈现的是那些或是存在固定地点,或者对公共空间,私人公寓或者数字空间进行占领的的独立艺术项目。我们希望通过探究艺术空间及其概念的各种可能性,来推动对中国独立艺术实践问题的进一步思考。当下,空间不必再与地点联系在一起,我们也希望能展现发生在系统之外的艺术项目。今年的主题不仅是呈现基于北京的独立艺术空间,也包括为今年主题特别创制的项目。

今年的主题围绕着“试水”,一个对既不固定又非可控,却是流动、灵活、基本和无处不在的大小实践所做出的宣言。水包容一切,又为一切所包容。水是流变的,无所不在的,同时它是生命的维系。水没有形状,然而,它想去哪儿就去哪儿,它根据自己的意愿或者需求改变移动方向和速度。李小龙的魔咒“做水吧,我的朋友”召唤着你成为你想成为的、变形为你所喜欢的形态。在此,“试水”呈现对这种能力进行研究并应用的艺术项目。

在不同空间的活动包括展览,行为表演,音乐会,电影放映,讲座。 活动的多样性反映着北京乃至国际上独立空间所呈现的多维谱系。2016年北京独立艺术空间的一周活动将在8月20-28日发生。
