Anne-Marie Dillon: Does art grow in the rural?
Anne-Marie Dillon, artist and activist, lives and works in a small coastal village in Co Down, Northern Ireland, surrounded by sea, fields and a large British Army camp.
The cinema caravan, a project together with young people and her open community centre with seating in the public, put together once a week with pensioners, are examples of provocative and relevant art in the (rural) public. Her talk will focus on her socially engaged art practice and experience of working with a diverse community in a village context.

Julie Miller: Art as acts of kindness.
Performances and gestures as gifts and acts of kindness are a central theme in Julie Miller’s work. Adopting formats and rituals from religion, she often applies inherent social demands in her activities which mostly happen in the public and beyond a gallery context.
Julie Miller tests the role of the artist in society and the mutual relationship between the producer and receiver, proposing a new economy, both in art and in real life.
12/13 July 2013
Ruth Morrow: Art as spatial practice.
As architect, academic and curatorial adviser, Ruth Morrow shows research into various off-site projects of PS², underlining the importance of multidisciplinary approaches. Can the ‘situations’ installed in this exhibition be seen as spatial practice, as architecture without the building? And what is built instead?
19/20th July 2013
PS² / Peter Mutschler: Ping Pong
What art and for whom? Peter Mutschler, artist and reluctant curator of PS² is interested in art and cultural practices which can play a role in our society and provoke critical debate.
Within the constant struggle between autonomy and social obligation of contemporary art, he thinks in terms of a complete transfusion of art and life. Does art need a pedestal and its own space or can it happen everywhere?
