Self-management traces do it yourself practices from the pioneering artists of the sixties to the present. Through strategies that could be considered self-managed, these artists have taken control of their production and the emission and reception of their works with gestures of empowerment that have resulted in new ways of relating to the artistic system.

The works of the exhibition form a constellation of practices and gestures that constitute a defense of the continued power of the imagination and the creativity.

museumMAN was established in Berlin 1996. Moving into a former DDR apartment and finding the flotsam-jetsam of a deceased man; photographs, books, personal items and various paraphernalia. Through these found relics of an anonymous man, his life, a history of a city was revealed.

with many thanks to the artists and everyone involved in the projects and to all contributing artists of the London Biennale Berlin- greatly appreciated

Misha Dare

Harpley Project ( Rubbings) Water colour 2019

Harpley Site: Artist Statement.

I want to thank the WadaWarrung people for their support, I would like to pay my respects to their ancestors both pre occupation, and post occupation, to the present people for their knowledge, their generosity in sharing that knowledge of the site I worked on, and their emerging generations.

I created this artwork on site at the Harpley Waterway Park.
My work is referencing the re-use of land; land of the Wadawarrung people who were gracious at the smoking ceremony we attended in explaining their culture, their totems, and history. The land was disrupted with colonization, and used for farming, changing the landscape with the loss of waterways, flora, and fauna. When building the Harpley housing estate part of the water ways were discovered and reestablished seeing a return of the bird life, with re-planting of trees, and reeds: I saw waterfowl nesting in the reeds.

While there working a Wadawarrung elder was with a mothers group singing songs and telling stories to the children about culture and country, this moment inspired me with my work, as these stories being told to the children from the traditional owner will be carried in the minds and hearts of these enthusiastic listeners to hopefully inform their futures. I wanted my work to capture this.

The restoration of wetlands as a natural phenomenon of the area was my starting point, reflecting this with the use of sustainable materials, which has become an important part of my practice.
The work I made reflected the elements of time and space with the traces of ancient stone reflected through the Hanji mulberry paper; which itself is an ancient paper making method used in Korea for thousands of years, though delicate, it is strong, and durable, with ancient manuscripts and texts written on this paper millennia ago still surviving, much like the land and people here. I used a slab of stone that surround the waterway as part of my canvas; soaking the paper with water on the rock bringing through its texture and colour as the paper became translucent, I sponged and splashed yellow watercolor, referencing the sunlight, needed for life to grow. I want my work to tell it’s own story of place.

I wanted my work to mirror the reclaimed water landscape that the motorists experience on their daily commutes, and nearby homes will be facing out to, it will appear as a green scape reflecting a sense of calm that water, and nature brings: The return of ancient habitat is becoming crucial to human survival, we are now realizing that humans aren’t apart from our natural world, we are indeed very much part of it, relying on it’s maintenance by us for human survival, the necessity to re embrace the ancient knowledge the Indigenous people hold in regards to land and nature. I’m hoping that my work would also bring with it a consideration on the part of the residents to think about their carbon footprint for their future health and happiness…

However, while driving to the estate to create our works on the waterway park, we drove around part of the estate looking for the hoarding we are creating our work for. I observed the building of the houses, and the existing houses noting that the plots are small leaving no room for trees or even shrubs that the houses will need to keep them cool, relying on air conditioning as the huge build up of houses and bitumen will bring the temperatures soaring.
I also noted the construction of the houses and apartments further away from the wetland became closer together with no greenery, and with less land for much needed parks, I saw on an elevated area a sea of roofs, and I saw only one roof with solar panels.
We had to drive there, as there is no infrastructure for public transport or bike paths for kids and families, so only the people living close to the waterway will be able to access it without driving with limited parking when they get there, adding to the enormous carbon footprint that this estate already generates, AND only a portion of this estate is built.

I was working in the park enjoying the wildlife listening to the Elder and children singing, telling stories in the mothers group; as we were leaving an army of pest control men with protective clothing, masks, gloves descended across the park to spray weed killers that not only kill weeds, but the insects and bees that are in decline, that the returning birds and water fowl feed on. The mothers group, children and Elder didn’t have protective clothing, gloves and masks on, and it was a windy morning.

I was lead to believe that this was a sustainable area, I saw no such evidence, what I saw made me angry, we are in a state of a climate change emergency, with Australia getting hotter, our ecosystem becoming unpredictable, and yet places like this are being built on land needed to keep our climate stabilized and restored: Our working class are being herded into the outskirts, fed a story about sustainability while driving hours to get to jobs that are getting harder to get, feeling stressed by long commutes in heavy traffic because public transport is non existent, to live in a badly designed houses, that they will have a mortgage on to the company that built these houses, keeping them in debt, and too tired to consider the truth of their circumstances, because they have been fed an illusion of ‘The Australian Dream’ that no longer exists, all the while creating an enormous carbon emitting footprint.

We have a new name for colonization; Capitalist corporation.
Where is the sustainable good design for our cities?
I am outraged that the government, the pedagogy, the indigenous owners of this land is complicit in this ecological disaster, and future slum.

I withdraw my work from this project.

Thank you. Misha Dare

museum MAN

Adam Nankervis`conceptual nomadic museum based on the found flotsam in an abonded apartment Berlin est. 1997

museumMAN Guy Brett [...] museum is an appropriate word. Most people today trace the origins of the modern museum to the Cabinets of Curiosities assembled in their homes by cultivated grandees of the 17th century (they are the ones we hear about, no doubt those less exalted had their collections too). These cabinets enjoyed a fertile, incongruous mix-up of categories, later distinguished as specialized disciplines: paleontology, natural history, archeology, ethnography, optics, cosmology, art. They were also 'lived-in' museums, and the phenomenon has reappeared in recent times, both as the dens of obsessional collectors, and as the studios of artists. Kurt Schwitters' Merzbau is an outstanding example. He transformed his house in Hanover into an abstract grotto to contain all the ephemera he collected on his daily rambles. Though he might have wanted to stay for ever in his grotto, he was forced into itinerancy by political events and began a new Merzbau in each principal place of his exile (the poignant remains of the Merzbau he began in a farmer's barn in the English Lake District are preserved in the Hatton Gallery of the University of Newcastle). Museum MAN, however, is conceived as itinerant. Like Schwitters'Merzbau, Nankervis' museum includes the gifts of other artists'work, or some personal item. Schwitters once purloined a pair of Lazlo Moholy-Nagy's socks after a visit by the Hungarian and incorporated them into his construction. No doubt this personal momento was steered towards abstraction. Abstraction, understood as the play of forms in a state of freedom, released from the old hierarchies and symbolisms, was the great quest of many 20th century artists. Indeed Schwitters wrote of his multivarious salvages: By being balanced against each other, these materials lose their characteristics, their personality poison. They are dematerialised and are only stuff for thepainting which is a self-related entity. Nankervis'museum belongs to an age of vastly expanded production and consumption of imagery: a new media-scape, an acceleration of the process of mediation of the real. Far from losing their 'personalities' his materials take on new personalities as a result of their proximity and interrelationship with one another (this must also be true of Schwitters: his materials do not really lose their personalities; nevertheless the urge towards abstraction does set his collages in their historical moment). Artists have invented museums around specific themes (such as Claes Oldenburg's Raygun collection as the discovery of a mass-cultural icon in the meanest scraps and trash; or Marcel Broodthaers Eagle Museum ( as a critique of power). As well, ordinary people have created live-in, single theme museums. Obsessional collections of Elvis memorabilia or images of dogs are monothematic but plural in terms of object-forms: an Elvis clock, an Elvis hot water bottle, etc. The mythic presence is charmed into every commodity of domestic life. An entrepreneur can profit from the collectors addiction ? rare items changing hands for a lot of money ? but nobody can exploit the person who collects material according to a philosophy, a poetics, an aesthetic, that only they know [...]
