Preview of the new Fair Arts Almanac

What if rest becomes an essential part of our understanding about work? What does a revenue model look like when it is based on what you need? And do we succeed in developing workplaces that not only tolerate, but truly embrace motherhood? What if citizens could participate in deciding on cultural politics?

The content for the second edition of the Fair Arts Almanac was created during a series of events throughout 2021. The preparatory events took place on a monthly basis at different locations. The varied topics were discussed and prepared by different groups that addressed urgent questions living among art practitioners these days. In 2022, a collective editing process followed.

The material gathered in these meetings was transcribed, transformed and gathered on a web platform hosted by OSP (Open Source Publishing). Based on these materials and on the input and contributions of 12 month editors the physical Fair Arts Almanac is in creation. It will be a publication with 12 chapters that follow the rhythm of the seasons offering a large variety of topics, writers and formats.

In a scenography of questions and chapters the event digs into some inspiring proposals on social, economic, ecological and political questions in the arts (and beyond). See it as a preview of a book. You can’t turn the pages yet, but you can talk with them.

With a.o. Laura Oriol, Justine Maxelon, Nicolas Galeazzi, Gosie Vervloessem, Wouter Hillaert and Katrien Reist.

State of the Arts (SOTA) is an open platform to reimagine the conditions that shape the art world today.
