Karl Kraft draws my attention to the next in the appallingly-named but fascinating sounding Sweatshop series at the Serpentine Gallery.

Sadly, I'll be @ work, but I hope Karl will be able to provide a report for the kollektive.

Second-Hand Fantasy

Tuesday 28 September

The Sackler Centre of Arts Education at the Serpentine Gallery
Admission Free

Sweatshops are informal factories for ideas and debate. This series of discussions invites writers, artists, curators and theorists to explore current research interests.

During the Glenn Brown exhibition (14 September 7 November), Lisa Le Feurve and Edgar Schmitz will be joined by invited speakers: Barry Curtis, Director of Graduate Research and Postgraduate Studies at Middlesex University; Kodwo Eshun, self-professed 'concept engineer' known for his theories on electronic music and its interface with art, technology and machine culture; Adrian Rifkin, Academic Chair of Visual Culture at Middlesex University; and artist, John Timberlake. The panel will explore ideas of science fiction, retro-futures and second-hand utopias.
