TUTORIAL is a self-paced learning exercise in making a statement for an unknown future. In these times of conflicts and limitations, TUTORIAL focuses on ‘what is possible,’ believing in the potential of art and solidarity. Here, art acts as a spe culative potential, an affirmation of alternative and sustained states of coexisting. For this, TUTORIAL invited eight off-space to develop proposals, manifesting new possibilities for producing together, seeking new social structures beyond the prac tices of commercial standards. Through imaginations, utopias, or pure insights ex pressed in artistic productions, each proposition responds and reflects our present crises in ecology, social life, economics, and health.
The International Off-Space Network aims to build an extensive network of inter national artist run spaces cultivating new relationships and ideas between artists, curators, galleries, and people in arts. The series attains an alternative approach to collaboration and production, with its non-hierarchical, reachable, transparent, open-source, non-competitive, and progressive structure. It promotes the solidarity of independent art spaces, building a strong network of art professionals, coun ter-acting to the sovereign art market. Each year, international off-spaces are invi ted to participate and curate their shows, encouraging participation and teamwork. The collaborative process is later presented in an exhibition, each time with a diffe rent focus and location. Each year’s theme investigates matters of the present time, applies and tests utopia, and challenges postmodern understandings.
