「The Art of Living」 - Harminder Judge 哈敏德·贾纪

Collaboration between New York-based SCREEN and Beijing-based I: project space.

Artist: Harminder Judge

The real creativity of an artistic practice usually isn’t on display in a gallery, fair, or museum. It happens in private, often long before supposedly “artistic” work has begun. We’re talking about processes like negotiating rent; getting or quitting part-time jobs; putting in the hours of writing applications or finding supporters; making or breaking budgets.

Duchamp famously reduced his appetites to a bare minimum, often smoking instead of eating, so that he wouldn’t have to go to work. What are the strategies available to us today? Inventing lifestyles that make art-making possible is the most serious challenge facing artists today. That’s why the ways that artists get by and stay creative is the subject of this survey.

In this collaboration between New York-based SCREEN and Beijing-based I: project space, a group of young artists in New York, Berlin and Beijing will respond with images and links to a questionnaire on their living and working conditions. This survey will be published on SCREEN’s website and I: Project Space’s Wechat channel. The season will then culminate in a three-city screening series curated around the theme of stories of survival.

SCREEN is a New York-based curatorial collective and media art platform that fosters critical voices and new forms of exhibition for media-based practices.

简介:这个数位影像的对话系列是纽约的SCREEN 以及北京的I: project space合作的项目。我们对在北京,纽约,还有柏林生活的年轻艺术家进行了一个他们生存状态的调查,他们用影像,链接等呈现他们的回应。

文字:艺术家的创造活力通常不只在画廊,艺博会,还有美术馆出现,而是在私人场域,而且更常发生在“艺术作品”形成之前。甚至是在讨价还价房租,开始或结束兼职,申请经费,调节预算,这些生活片段当中。

杜象曾为了降低工作赚钱的必要性,将他的食欲减到最低,以抽烟取代进食,今日的艺术家是怎么生存的? 发明让艺术创造变得“可能”的生活方式是今日艺术家最需认真面对的议题,因此艺术家如何获得灵感是这个调查的主旨。
