INVENT/INVEST Special Guest: Société Réaliste / by Kunstsaele

Société Réaliste will Give a Talk on Invent / Invest within the Frame of the BEHAVING DIFFERENTLY! lecture series organized by Interflugs.

Société Réaliste is a Parisian cooperative created by Ferenc Gróf and Jean-Baptiste Naudy in June 2004. They work in multiple forms with political design, experimental economy, territorial ergonomy and social engineering consulting. Their projects can take the shape of exhibitions, publications or conferences. In relation to the “Behaving Differently!” lecture series focus on art economies, they will present connection points between projects dealing with the issue, such as “Cabinet Société Réaliste Conseil”, a legislative consulting firm whose mission is to help create and sustain competitive legislation (ongoing), the “Artleaks” collaborative platform for the labor rights of cultural workers (2011), the collective critical exhibition “Artist Pension Trust” (2011), or their Art Scheme Corporation “Ponzi’s” (2006). They will as well present their most recent work about the structural commonality of ideology in architecture and discourse, as developped in 2011 with the series of exhibitions “Empire, State, Building” (Jeu de Paume, Paris), “The city amidst the buildings” (Akbank Sanat, Istanbul) and “Archiscriptons” (Mosseri-Marlio Gallery, Zurich).

BEHAVING DIFFERENTLY! is a lecture series on models of resistant economies in art and cultural work. “The State (…) is a condition, a certain relationship between human beings, a mode of human behavior; we destroy it by contracting other relationships, by behaving differently.” Gustav Landauer Organised by Interflugs, the autonomous students organisation at the UdK Berlin.
