Taking Sides Thu, 15 Jan 2015 11:48:53 +0000 Free organised a football tournament for NGBK, Berlin

The Freee art collective football tournament recoded football as a platform for opinion formation and disagreement by placing slogans where footballers’ names and sponsors’ logos go. Teams were not selected by managers or peer pressure but  by individuals choosing a slogan to wear. Fans who supported a particular team, having no geographical name to shout, would chant the slogan together rivalled by the supporters of another team. The winning team of the tournament brought honour to its slogan.

Freee at MOVEMENT Sun, 11 Mar 2012 21:41:45 +0000

The Freee art collective have produced a new work for Movement titled ‘Prognosis Kiosk’. The future use of a series of buildings in a regeneration zone will be subjected to utopian scrutiny. With a completely transformed society in mind, assuming that everything has been democratized, from the workplace to the town planning office, including all economic and political decision-making, Freee will host a workshop to discuss how to occupy the buildings we already have.

Rather then ‘gentrify’ the site Freee will explore how to convert a neglected place into a thriving Socialist community for the twenty-first century. Using drawing, erasure, signage, instructions and descriptions, Freee will overlay utopia onto the physical infrastructure of deindustrialized capitalism. Rather than simply producing an imaginary world out of the existing one, Freee will make constructive proposals for real changes. Images of places will be montaged with alternative uses, occupations and collective arrangements. Montage is not simply a “critical” tool for changing our perception of things or challenging our preconceptions; montage asks us, what are you going to do with the world to change it?

Large billboard size images of the buildings have been pasted to the casino walls of the gallery. New signs will be made to signify the changed uses of the buildings and some of these will be hung on the photos to indicate the proposed changes to their function. Also the participants in the workshops will write and draw on the posters to demonstrate, describe and explain the changes on which they have agreed. The gallery has therefore been transformed from a space of visual display into a working space for transformative collective planning – a prognosis kiosk! Viewers who visit the gallery after the workshop has taken place will be invited to add to the work with their own proposals, so that the work becomes a document subject to revision by those originally excluded from the process.

Please email Nina  – to find our more about the Freee workshop  – starts 2pm on Friday  23rd March 2012
