Two Flux Factory artists, Chen Tamir and Douglas Paulson, will collaborate with Urban Void, the Network of Nomadic Architecture, and Damon Rich & Jae Shin on Water Girls, Water Boys at the upcoming Athens Biennial. Together with the public, they will explore Athens’ coastal suburb of Phaliron at the mouth of the Kifissos River and the island of Psytalleia. These areas have fallen victim to ecological irresponsibility, and Flux Factory and company will be creating an open-source tour guide to the area.

Reverse Pedagogy at the Venice Biennial, June 1-7

Flux Factory is partnering with Reverse Pedagogy, an experimental, nomadic art school in session during the first ten days of the 53rd Venice Biennial, bringing with it an international cast of artists, curators, and writers. Taking off from its first installment at the Banff Centre (Canada), Reverse Pedagogy turns the city of Venice into its own site of art and knowledge production, communal living, play, and conversation. With air mattresses, tents, crash pads, and eleven canoes in tow, participants engage round-the-clock in activities within the residency and the Biennial itself.

Reverse Pedagogy will travel to New York in 2010 as part of Flux Factory’s newly established residency program.
