Ambassador Jerry Maguire’s Alternative Ecomonies

Jerry Maguire for Alternative Economies

vizKult announces:

Ambassador Jerry Maguires’s AlterNative EcoNomiEs
A new Alternative Economies Affinity Group inspired by Ambassador Jerry Maguire plans to go beyond the typical activist handbook and dialectical double-speak of both the ‘left’ and ‘right’. In the coming months and perhaps next decade, the affinity group is set to unleash alternatives to lift us into a new lucid dimension of economic play with ‘Workers’ Saunas’, ‘Autonomous Yoga Zones’, ‘Community Supported Tropical Agriculture’, ‘Local Kwon Currency’, ‘Time-Warp Banks’, and other ‘Open Sourcery Projects’…

Kwan, Kwon, Quan
For  March 5-27, 2014 you can see the first Kwan prototype on display at Currency as Space @HDLU Treasury and Mint, Trg žrtava fašizma 16 Zagreb, Croatia  www.borroworrob.org

Free University

May Day 2013 Free University at Cooper Union

Free University

May 1st, 2013

vizKult believes that knowledge is a commons: knowledge originates from many, and is cooperatively produced. Knowledge should not be bought or sold but should be free. This May Day 2013, vizKult helped facilitate activities for a free university in solidarity with the students at Cooper Union. But vizKult would like to underline that it does not support reinstating free education for only a select few as it existed in the past, but free education for all via a progressive admissions policy. A policy that admits anyone who wants to learn, not based on merit but based on will, no mater sex, age, or background.

Commonalities

June 4th-9th, 2012

I. Is space the only thing that divides us? And is color and shape really the only thing that further differentiates our divided spaces? Even then, Spinoza’s physical theory tell us that in regards to individuality, our bodies are really only modifications of a single substance. We are all woven from the same thread, to put it in colloquial terms. Then can it be said that exchanges and engagements with in art can be a place where commonalities are created as a way to deal with this superficial division of space, color, and shape?

Four Points and A Circle

Four Points and A Circle

Fall 2012 – ongoing

It is usually the grandeur of the wooded area surrounding The Manse that we recall from our history books. In American Romantic painting for example we are overwhelmed by the sublime depicted in the surrounding forms: nature, elements of the creator, man and nothing else. Within the framework of Four Points and a Circle we are called to uncover a different human condition hidden from our perspective.

A Line In Nature

A Line In Nature

Fall 2008 - ongoing

A research/reading group that examines the relationships between humans and nature throughout time, thus tracing a line in nature. Although the general goal is to explore, we are also open to presentations, proposals, and experiments (both collaborative/individual and formal/informal. [Original ideas for visual propositions on nature date back to 2008 but in October 2010 it was proposed as The Urban Foraging Reading Group at The Public School NYC.]
