<div class="about">
<p><strong>Caveat</strong> is a collective research project reflecting and acting on the ecology of artistic practice. Convened in 2017 by the Brussels-based artists’ initiative Jubilee, the project title alludes to the legal principle caveat emptor (buyer beware) – signalling the research's ambition to raise awareness and co-create alternatives.</p>
<p>As such <strong>Caveat</strong> is a wake-up call to artists and art workers, as well as art institutions and producers to collectively re-think and respond to the nature of their work relationships. Not only to their socio-economical and legal context, but also to their cultural positions in a broad sense. And a much-needed wake-up call it is, since the art world for a long time has been operating on the frontline of neoliberal flexibilization and deregulation of labour – while its functioning can only be improved for all by involving all the parties involved.</p>
<p><strong>Caveat</strong> is artistic research with a focus on contracts as a tool for formalizing relations. The project attributes a central role to a large number of artists who are invited to do in-depth research through their art practices into the socio-economic and legal conditions of these practices. A research team comprising an artist, a curator and a legal specialist, organise and curate the project. They work in partnership with organisations who engage with the project’s themes and aims from their own position. The team works closely together with the artists to narrate and extrapolate the commissioned works.</p>
<p><strong>Caveat</strong> reading rooms offer open, discursive moments which invite a wider public to formulate a mutual understanding of the conditions on the field and how they reconnect with broader societal questions. Ideas and thoughts on this are collected and flow back into the research. Online co-writing pads, allow the public to continue to elaborate on the discussions.</p>
<p>Jubilee has used its own networked artistic operational structure to model <strong>Caveat</strong>, organising collaboration, consultation and exchange between artists and centres for contemporary art, museums, producers, collectors, galleries, academies, residencies and other actors. This broad network offers the research a view on the (specifically Belgian) art world in such a way that it can be understood as an ecology – approaching different perspectives as equally important. In collaboration with a number of research partners Jubilee developed <strong>Caveat</strong> as an interface that inserts itself within the fields of friction between these different actors which allows moving discussions and negotiations from a private, secretive environment – where considerable differences in economic power positions exist unchallenged – to the agonistic inclusivity which <strong>Caveat</strong> strives for, as a project situated in the public domain.</p>
<p>Indeed, there is sincere interest for <strong>Caveat</strong>'s mobilizing approach. A wide variety of professionals in the cultural and legal fields are partners, offering in-depth expertise to the project. A number of art institutions are engaged in the research trajectory, or act as co-producers or hosting institutions for the project’s artist commissions. Last but not least, <strong>Caveat</strong> aims to develop an ambitious educational outreach towards art academies and universities.</p>
<p>Next to a documentary and a publication, <strong>Caveat</strong> envisages an open source toolbox as significant concrete outcome of the research. While its form will be defined throughout the collective research, it is intended to offer advanced and reframed equivalents of what is commonly understood as a contract – instruments that can be customized by the user in the face of the particularities of each practice, project and relationship.</p>
<p><strong>Caveat</strong> tries to find more sustainable, balanced ways of operating within the existing legal frameworks. When the limits of the existing system are reached, it tries to come up with possible new narratives that open up space for reflection.</p>

<p>The practices of the invited artists testify both for an intense research in and a sharp awareness of the conditions and context in which their work come into life, are exhibited, circulated, and archived. Furthermore, they engage actively and critically in sharing, coming together, disseminating these issues not only amongst their peers but also towards a wider audience. Because, as Ben Kinmont put it once, “There is also a need outside of here.”</p>

The display is part of <em>Speaking Volumes</em>, a hybrid research project about feminist publishing practices, between art and activism — a blind spot in the history of artists’ books. The research takes different forms, from graphic documents to performative events, and materializes on a display inspired by Alison Knowles' artwork <em>The Big Book</em>, a giant structure with oversized pages she built in 1966.</p>

With performances and publishing projects in new and digital media, he uses the internet as a performative space.

<p><a class="artist" id="Sofia-Caesar-bio"><span>Sofia Caesar</span></a> makes videos, performances, sculptures, and installations. The body in motion is central to her work. She often engages herself and the public in seeing how the structures that act on us, such as architecture, language, or the camera, can be played with. In her works, we often see bodies escaping the forces that control them, creating a language of their own. In Caesar’s works, structures that surround her become scripts to be performed. An interview becomes a partition for a collective reading. An archival film is transformed into a trajectory on the floor. A work contract, a sign post that can be pointed at multiple directions. A surveillance system, a track for running. The sunset, a time to sit still. This exercise of creating choreographic scores with the world around her, allows Caesar to amplify moments of liberation. From structures that would otherwise be overpowering, Sofia finds dance and noise.
She has participated in exhibitions such as 6th Moscow Biennial (RUS); Delirium & Destiny, A Tale of a Tub Rotterdam (NL); Transperformance 2, Oi Futuro (RJ, BR); EDP ​​Award, Instituto Tomie Othake (Sao Paulo, BR), among others. She won the Rumos Itaú Cultural 2018 prize and her work "Worker leaves the factory (conditions for the work)" is part of the permanent collection of Parco d'Arte Vivente, Torino (IT).

<blockquote>Why would artists contractualize relationships?</blockquote>
<blockquote>How do artists engage into working conditions?</blockquote>
<blockquote>How to survive as an artist?</blockquote>
<p>These questions will develop in a back and forth movement from publishing to performance and the other way around. Indeed, the artists invited by <strong>Caveat</strong> approach publishing as a means to make things public, as a medium for emancipation and coalition, as a tool for thinking, and as a (third) sculpture.</p>
<p>With: <a href="" class="artist"><span>Eva Barto</span></a>, <a href="" class="artist"><span>Sofia Caesar</span></a>, <a href="" class="artist"><span>Loraine Furter</span></a> & <a href="" class="artist"><span>Laurie Charles</span></a>, <a href="" class="artist"><span>Ben Kinmont</span></a>, <a href="" class="artist"><span>franck leibovici</span></a>, <a href="" class="artist"><span>Eric Schrijver</span></a> & <a href="" class="artist"><span>OSP</span></a></p>
<p>The practices of the invited artists testify both for an intense research in and a sharp awareness of the conditions and context in which their work come into life, are exhibited, circulated, and archived. Furthermore, they engage actively and critically in sharing, coming together, disseminating these issues not only amongst their peers but also towards a wider audience. Because, as Ben Kinmont put it once, “There is also a need outside of here.”</p>
<p><strong>Caveat</strong> is a collective research project reflecting and acting on the ecology of artistic practice. Convened in 2017 by the Brussels-based artists’ initiative Jubilee, the project title alludes to the legal principle caveat emptor (buyer beware), signaling the research's ambition to raise awareness and co-create alternatives.</p>

<p>For the Metamorphosis of Labour symposium, the <strong>Caveat</strong> research team proposes to present an introductory outline of the project. This contribution will involve a slight deviation from the standard format of academic paper presentations, but will hopefully also offer an insight into how the symposium’s topic —&nbsp;questions revolving around labour and identity&nbsp;— are (and have been) researched and dealt with not only in other disciplinary academic fields, but also in the field of artistic practice. As such, <strong>Caveat</strong> hopes to instigate a truly interdisciplinary dialogue on these pertinent questions.</p>
