website (5)


After nearly a year of preparatory work, we’re thrilled to announce the launch of one of our most ambitious initiatives ever: Creative Time Reports, a multimedia website dedicated to artists’ analysis of contemporary social issues and news from around the world. Founded on the belief that artists’ voices are critical elements of public discourse, Creative Time Reports enables artists to disseminate original reporting and analysis in a variety of formats. The site also encourages public feedback and fosters ongoing dialogue across a variety of social-media platforms.

Creative Time Reports welcomes artist contributors from all disciplines, including both the visual and performing arts. Find current contributions from the likes of British multimedia artist Liam Gillick, writing on global finance from the Basque Country; artist Pedro Reyes, reporting on elections in Mexico; Haitian writer Jean-Euphèle Milcé in Port-au-Prince, documenting the political, material, and emotional aftermath of the catastrophic earthquake of 2010; Iranian-American comedian, actress, writer, and filmmaker Negin Farsad, who has produced a video comprising interviews outside the United Nations, during the General Assembly; and many others.

Today, the Internet is our global town square. As such, Creative Time Reports can provide an international platform for artists’ ideas about the issues that matter to them, and initiate broad-based dialogue. In addition to hosting original reports and timely updates about a wide range of issues, the site will encourage your feedback and foster ongoing dialogue, and will incorporate live feeds from Twitter (@artistsreport) and Facebook. Creative Time Reports will best succeed with your smart, thought-provoking responses, whether written in the comments section on the website itself, or posted on other social-media platforms.

Creative Time is grateful to the Rockefeller Foundation's New York City Cultural Innovation Fund for its support of Creative Time Reports.

This afternoon at 2PM EST, we’ll be co-hosting a live panel with Artlog related to the launch of Creative Time Reports. You don’t have to be on Twitter to watch the live conversation, which will include panelists from SFMOMA, Art21, and the Whitney Museum, as well as artist Hank Willis Thomas and the creators of Creative Time Reports. Just click this link at 2PM, or if you are on Twitter, join in using the hashtag #CTRL.

Be sure to check regularly for stories, interviews, narrative articles, podcasts, video, photo essays and more from artists and cultural producers from around the world, and join the conversation today!

project description  from website:

Les Laboratoires d'Aubervilliers are a tool dedicated to artistic research. They intend to gather the necessary conditions for projects that do not fit pre-existing systems of artistic and cultural production. Their organization and structure, as well as the modalities of residency (such as duration of stay and budget) adapt themselves to the hosted proposals.
These proposals allow to renew and question existing modalities of production, as well as their resulting terms of work and address. They belong to all artistic backgrounds. The objects and forms of research do not necessarily fit the usual practices or disciplines the initiating artists may be distinguished for.

Research projects both address the audience through the forms they produce and through invitations to take part in their processes. These participations lead to question the collective dimension of a research, i.e: the nature of shared knowledge and practices, and the way in which this activity organizes itself. These participants are volunteers, and most of them live in or regularly come to Aubervilliers.
Generally, researches are publicized through the Journal des Laboratoires, which exists under three free complementary forms. The paper edition is distributed among a network of French and European collaborators. Public openings are occasionally organized at 8 pm (5 pm on Sundays) and take different forms: performances, projections, lectures, concerts, meals, etc. The archive includes the website, reference books, along with the documentation of previous projects since 2001, available for consultation.
Projects hosted by Les Laboratoires d’Aubervilliers may involve cultural, social or scientific structures and institutions, either locally, nationally or internationally committed, as well as structures of distribution and co-production.

Also, les Laboratoires d’Aubervilliers regularly exchange with several European structures: artists, activists or curators collectives, magazines, festivals, mostly self-organized art spaces, schools, etc. They share an interest for the development of alternative approaches to knowledge and practice sharing on a local level, which lead to an ongoing criticism and renewal of what is at stake in artistic research.

November 28, 2008 VIA dance-tech list Choreographic Captures 2008: Dear Artists and colleagues, We’re pleased to announce that the website is now online. The website contains about 100 choreographic short films which were submitted to the first international Choreographic Captures competition in 2008. Additional films will be added next year. Choreographic Captures, each of which is maximally sixty seconds long, reclaim the format of the advertising clip for a new and purely artistic purpose. Choreographic Captures are art in public space. The five prizewinning films from this year’s Choreographic Captures competition are now also being shown in selected cinemas, where they’re screened at an unexpected moment: in the midst of the series of advertising clips that precede a feature film, e.g. between ordinary ads for jeans or cars! Shown in the context of such commercial messages, the Captures entertain and surprise movie audiences: entirely in accord with the motto “art for those who didn’t ask for it!” For more information about the project, the upcoming competition in 2009 and the participating cinemas, please visit, where you will naturally also find all of the short films – so there’s no need to wait until the next time you go to your local cinema! Visit the website and discover exciting films. Perhaps they’ll inspire you to create a Choreographic Capture of your own for next year’s competition in the spring of 2009. Of course, we would be pleased if you would forward this link to all your friends and colleagues who might be interested in the project as well. Let’s bring art back to life! Enjoy the films! visit now
