Podcast: You and me distribution

During 2020 Index’ ongoing research process of looking into how artists deal with and reinvent formats for distribution, has itself been re-distributed – frozen – speed up – paused – and accelerated by the global turn. The rollercoaster of stillness and intensity has put a new lens on how we see the movement of information, the movements of our bodies and the material realities of distribution. As part of this Tracking Distribution interns Mmabatho Thobejane and Lili Huston-Herterich joined us as co-researchers, learning and sharing within the summer course Art and Distribution: Exhibition practices and other ways to distribute, organized by Index and Konstfack University of Arts and Crafts. Now active at Index throughout the summer, Mmabatho and Lili play an important part in the course unfolding, tracking its distribution and formulating how artistic practices are taking on other modalities in responding to a distributed world.

The conversation shared in this podcast was recorded during the first intense week of seminars and lectures at Index and is a moment of getting to know the term distribution from their own personal perspectives and how they use distribution as a concept within their own practices.
