momentum II 



In this conversation, Andrea Pagnes talks with Lois Keidan, co-founder and director of the Live Art Development Agency in London, and performance artist and writer Joseph Morgan Schofield about implementing the practice of collective care in the context of art making, organization and Live Art programming. They touch upon the current discourse about democratizing power relations in art institutions, and what this can mean for collective and non-hierarchical modes of production. Institutional failures and transformative responses are to be tackled as the urgency for a redistribution of care raises. They inquire into how to requalify ideology through Live Art, and how inclusivity, diversity and a queer perspective can prove fundamental for this process.

Momentum depends on the frame of reference.
In any inertial frame it is a constant quality.
If a closed system is not affected by external forces,
its total linear momentum does not change.

about momentum

In this series of videos, VestAndPage host conversations under existential focus with inspiring people from the arts, culture and science. In the form of shared contemplations, these dialogues search not to battle through opinions, but to raise crucial questions on our contemporaneity. The dialogues aspire to not accept any answer as ultimate, to allow for uncertainty, and to converge on a common ground in which shared knowledge is the fundament for continuous queries. Essential questions on existential concerns dig into the place of action in daily life. They touch subjects of humanity such as time, care, dualisms, love, transformation, consciousness, conflict, nature, and art. These encounters consist of people sharing their visions through unconventional, critical and divergent creative thinking, inspecting and dissecting contemporaneity while caring for humanity.
