Auto Italia in collaboration with Federico Campagna, Huw Lemmey, Michael
Oswell and Charlie Woolley present We have own concept of Time and
Motion: a four day event devoted to the idea and practice of
Featuring a temporary bookshop run by the new cooperative organisation
Book Bloc, archival material selected by participating artists and
commissioned furniture by Charlie Woolley, the exhibition space will
become a base for the production of new work and ideas. Through a series
of events this project will investigate pre-conceived ideas of
self-organisation and the role of gender politics within this. The
project will examine models of organisation especially from the position
of an artist-run space and how this fits within a neo-liberal framework
and is potentially complicit in the growing precarity of all labour. The
project title references the fourth issue of the publication Class War,
which controversially introduced Autonomist ideas to the London
anarchist scene in the mid 1980s.
Events will feature a wide variety of artists, activists, writers,
designers and academics who are part of a growing network engaged in
self-organisation and self-publishing. Speakers include Franco ‘Bifo’
Berardi, Nina Wakeford, Mark Fisher, the Free Association and the
Alliance of Radical Publishers plus more to be confirmed.
Workshops and panel discussions will be held throughout the event by
Auto Italia, Book Bloc and the Deterritorial Support Group, along with
daily podcasts recorded and distributed online. A new publication will
be produced outlining the live programme along with interviews and
discussions from international organisations with an additional
supplement made during the course of the project in the exhibition space
by Michael Oswell.
We have our own idea of Time and Motion comes from a network of artists
who have formed around Auto Italia and its programme and is a product of
artists finding affinity with each others’ projects, ideas and
aspirations. It draws on the intangible expertise, knowledge and network
which Auto Italia is a part of and will produce new information that can
develop a wider narrative for the future of grass-roots projects and
Auto Italia is an artist-run project space based in South East London.
It provides a framework for developing alternative and new approaches to
practice and exhibition formats, co-producing new work directly with
A timetable will be released shortly with a detailed schedule and full
