Caveat is a collective research into the ecology of artistic practice. It is initiated by Jubilee, in partnership with Open Source Publishing, No New Enemies and Été 78. Caveat tries to find more sustainable, balanced ways of operating within the existing legal frameworks. And when the limits of the existing system are reached, it tries to come up with possible new narratives that open up space for reflection.

Caveat presents a double programme hosted by OSP. The evening starts with a Reading Room where we collectively read and discuss parts of Ecotones of Collaboration, OSP's reseach into good practices in graphic design. This is followed by the festive public presentation of Caveat's website, developed and designed by OSP, a discussion and drinks.

How to survey the intersections of practices?

Ecotones of collaboration questions through long and short interviews the triangular relationship between graphic designers, artists and institutions. In particular the research tries to highlight the methods or positive experiences where the parties involved try to escape from the common mechanics of commodification.

An ecotone is a transition area between two biomes, river beds are a common example. Ecotones are areas where two communities meet and integrate. Through long and short interviews OSP is researching the modes of collaboration between graphic designers, artists and institutions. In particular, the research tries to highlight the methods or positive experiences where the parties involved try to escape from the common mechanics of commodification, read the interviews on ecotones.caveat.be.
