Alternative Contemporaneity: TAZ

Alternative Contemporaneities:Temporary Autonomous Zones (TAZ)

 

This group exhibition builds on the work: Temporary Autonomous Zones (TAZ) by Hakim Bey (Peter Lamborn Wilson). The project is curated by Richard Haden.

TAZ “alludes to creating temporary spaces that elude formal structures of control…thus creating the foundation for authenticity and spontaneity”. Richard Haden proposes to articulate the exhibition through TAZ and the ways in which it has to do with recreating an “intentional community” (IC) which relates to how past communities purposefully organized in various forms as collectives, to succeed as small villages or townships, guilds, radical groups, et cetera, that eventually gave way to controlling socio-economic structures, which eventually led to the loss of authentic empowerment.
