PRO-SPECTUS: Materials of the Future - How can we speculate

In conjunction with the launch of PROSPECTUS (ARTSCHOOL/UK, 2013), the publishing collective moderates a discursive event,
expanding the topics of the book around academies and factories, art schooling and extra-institutional frameworks, into new enquiries
of future materials. Themes of secondary knowledge, wildflower poetries, botanical diasporas, artistic agency and experimental
analytical models, are addressed in a mix of informal panel discussion, poster distribution, reading and screening, including Fritz Haeg,
Mark Allen of Machine Project, Johnnie JungleGuts / Kchung community radio station, and P.collective (John Reardon, Verina Gfader,
Ruth Hoeflich). A limited edition flag by Ruth Horflich will be produced to coincide with the event
