<nettime-ann> Spermöla!, by Basurama [Madrid·Spain July 7-13, 2008]


spermöla    Organized by Basurama
    7-13 July 2008 @ Intermediae/Matadero (Madrid/Spain)

Spermöla reproduces the forum of used objects or spermüll held under official auspices in some European countries. City governments announce the dates on which the residents of each street may deposit the objects they no longer want or use in a specific location so that others can take them. Spermöla aims to generate a useful platform or tool to prolong the useful lives of discarded objects and create a space for neighbours to meet based on the memory of those objects.

Spermöla consists of a workshop, a space of exchange and the launching of a webpage where any kind of object may be seen or left.

Pre-registration (www.inermedie.es) until 30 June via submission of personal data and a few lines explaining the reasons one wishes to take part in the workshop, which has space for 10 attendees. Basurama will select the participants.

Workshop contents:
1. Looking for, cataloguing, and setting out the useful objects to be displayed and the exchanged.
2. Updating and managing the contents on the Web tool created by meipi to be launched on 8 July.
3. Design and distribution of divulgation material: Creation and display of an announcement-furniture assembly made of objet trouvés (found objects). Looking for, collecting, repairing, and “tuning” the objects.
