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.

While infrastructure is the seemingly invisible backdrop to our daily grind, it has a tendency to make itself apparent at the point of dysfunction or in its conspicuous absence. This is certainly how art field actors tend to experience art infrastructure – yet, perhaps it is time to take infrastructure more seriously, particularly in a moment where the future of the art field is either being formulated in terms of dystopian visions and pivots, or is entirely cancelled. Ivanova argues that working towards future art fields through infrastructural praxis offers a surprisingly optimistic and generative alternative.
