Call for ideas 2021

Assembly


Nurturing new forms of knowledge and experience at the intersection of contemporary art and social life

Assembly


Nurturing new forms of knowledge and experience at the intersection of contemporary art and social life
Assembly is a new interdisciplinary initiative in St. Petersburg, which combines a discussion and research platform with an inclusive art laboratory.

Type of project
  • Site-specific cases

The project redefines the very idea of an art institution in the socio-political conditions of present day Russia with its lack of public sphere and democracy.
The headquarters of Assembly occupies one of the living units in an Art Nouveau apartment house and serves as a meeting point for various social groups including those who are often excluded from artistic processes. The activity of the space is centered around process-based practices dispersed within the space and throughout the city.
The concept of the interior envisions flexibility and multifunctionality of the rooms, integration of the artworks into architecture and visible traces of history - fragments of the past on the walls and the ceiling.
Architecture of the future is seen as a collective process that exists in collaboration with other disciplines, whereas architecture of care postulates an interrelation of various realms in order to integrate artistic activities into the urban and social landscape.


Map with the routes from the past events of "Laboratory of walks" and dynamic logos of Assembly by Anastasia Ryabova "Laboratory of walks" is a fist long-term project of the Assembly based on partisan practices that insist on the need to revise the established urban routes, rituals and social choreography through the creation of conditions for discussion and interaction.

Map of the “Borderline walk” by Ivan Shatravin-Dostov
Several groups passed through borderline zones, formed at the intersection of several heterogeneous urban spaces. The sketches, notes and drawings created by the participants as a result of the walk and following discussions formed a general map of the event.

"What is actually going on?" — performance by Valya Lutsenko, Anya Kravchenko and Marina Shamova in a format of inclusive collective walk, which explores how structured movements of bodies can be seen beyond the usual dance procedures and emerge from affects, impressions, interactions with different objects and parameters of the space

Axonometry of the Assembly headquarters

Library and coworking within the headquarters – a space for discussion and collective work on artistic and research projects.
