IOAM×Cache Space - Lecture: What’s the Matter?

Beijing Inside-Out Art Museum

IOAM×Cache Space | Lecture: What’s the Matter?

18:00 - 20:00


No.11, Liaogezi, Qixing East Road,798 Art District, 

No.4, Jiuxianqiao Road, Chaoyang District, Beijing, China

From 6pm to 8pm on Friday, December 28, 2018, the Inside-Out Art Museum (IOAM) in collaboration with the Cache Space will co-organize a talk by Isabel Mager, current artist-in-residence at the IOAM Art Residency Program. She will share with the audience at the Cache Space at 798 about her research and practice for the past month. This event is the second time that the IOAM collaborates with other art spaces (last time with the Institute for Provocation) sending IOAM residency artists out for sharing discussions, as we are hoping to keep the openness of the program at the IOAM.


About the Talk

Matter becomes shapes, become objects, become commodities – matters of exchange, circulating across borders and various socio-cultural and geopolitical contexts, engaging multiple hands, tactile interactions and bodily movements along their lifecycle. The movement of objects as commodities, linking and connecting identities across the globe, got amplified with the free-trade agreements of the early 90’s (This Changes Everything, Naomi Klein). Since then the shipping industry has grown by more than 400% (Ninety Percent of Everything, Rose George) evidencing the increased international flow of objects.

As a designer, trained to shape matter into desirable commodities, I have embarked a longterm researchwork with the intention to make the complexity of global trade tangible – focusing on the smartphone as first case-study object. In this talk, I will share research fragments from a recent stay in Shenzhen, this past November, which will be continued in the coming year. During this stay first conversations with local manufacturers, workers and young creatives were initiated and visitations to key industrial and urban sites took place. The talk will further unfold related and recent works to embed this ongoing dialogical research between China and Europe within my creative practice as a whole.

Artist Bio

Isabel Mager, born in 1992, received a BA Cum Laude at the Design Academy Eindhoven (NL, 2016), now working as an investigative designer in the Netherlands. Mager’s works map and confront asymmetries of power fostered through the circulation of commodities and standardisation of trade cultures.

About CACHE Space

The CACHE space is a non-profit art space found in Beijing in October 2016 which mainly focused on collecting, organizing, presenting the “surplus” in contemporary artistic practice and turning it into a “cache” model. It is mainly dedicated to radical art in China and around the world through screening, experimental theater, situation, panel discussion and online podcast, currently there is a 80 msq space in Beijing 798 Art District.
