Work-in-progress - Erika Arzt & Juan Linares
Erika Arzt (Austria) and Juan Linares (Spain) are developing a new project in South London as part of our first collaboration with Gasworks International Residency Programme. This Open Lecture will be an opportunity for the artists to discuss the development of their new work, and consider its relationship to their recent projects in Colombia and Madrid.
Throughout their residency, Arzt and Linares have been making appearances in and around Kennington Park Estate, conducting playful research about the uses of public space. Participants of varying ages have been airing their views in words and in sketches. These will feed into a fictional script for a performance in Kennington Park Estate Community Centre on Saturday 8 December.

Through project based work, Erika Arzt and Juan Linares work collaboratively and responsively, exploring the inclusion of communities in the development of their projects, which take the form of interventions and site specific works. The artists work to consult local interests and concerns in the development of their projects, offering up authorship and direct decision making to dialogue and communication.
