Projectinfo

I will explore the meaning of production/productive work in a general sense and its meaning and connotations in relation to art(making). Is a productive work solely a process of production/making that results in an “auratic” (or not) artefact or can it be conceived as a research or thinking activity that an artist embarks upon? As an artist, an educator, a theoretician how do I perceive my productive work? Is complying with dominant production “ideas” complying with (and perpetuating) a dominant system that sustains them?
