All plastic bags are art

Hutchinson, James and Dorrian, Edward (2020) All plastic bags are art. In: Being together is not enough. Public Series, 1 (8). Five years. ISBN 9781903724187

Item Type: Book Section


Five Years invites you to propose something. Something that can be made - that participates in a project. A group project that attempts to question and develop ideas of what might be at stake in being together.

We welcome proposals from anyone.
All proposals accepted. All rights reserved.

You are asked to propose a one to two-hour event to be programmed at Five Years (12-27 May 2018). The proposal you write will be published along with your event, within the programme - as part of a draft, working publication (A5 black & white).

Proposals are particularly welcome that attempt to radically interpret participatory activities and question organisational models of public events (including workshops, talks, lectures, discussion, reading groups, religious and political groups, performances, walks, exhibits, lessons, conferences, groups for and by: local residents, workers, artists, school children, activists, academics, researchers, designers, etc. ie anyone).

Proposals that attempt to operate outside formal institutions, that build on other self-organised events and actions are of course welcome too. As are previously independently published materials that can be presented here for further discussion.
