03-05 December

CP attends Critical Malfunction at Alternative in Gdansk
Our preoccupation with value begins to emerge. This tracks with broader trends. It seems the 'age of austerity' has got us all thinking about the value of things. Marsha is also becoming interested in the ways in which labours/practices are differently valued, the interplay and hierarchy of emotional labour and intellectual labour, etc.

07-09 December

There is more talk about the value of art: What it is? Where does it reside? Kuba starts talking more explicitly about value; Valeria Graziano of Carrot Workers Collective talks about 'value markers'...these are things that convey value, so help us to recognise value

15 January

Kuba and Marsha meet with Artur Zmijewski to discuss CP's practice in relation to his curation of Berlin Biennial in the summer of 2012 (BB7) He's in town for Art: What is the Use?.

Early 2011

We establish Art and Value working group, and begin developing a proposal for BB7 proposal. This is preoccupied with the 'the results' of art. But it seems that 'effects' is closer to how Zmijewski is thinking about this in Polish.


CP develops the Market of Values proposal, which is rejected by the BB7 curatorial team... (thinking about a shift from value to evaluation)
