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.

Biography

Greg Nijs is a sociologist working as a researcher at Urban Species (hosted by Université Libre de Bruxelles – Faculty of Architecture/Faculty of Social Sciences and Philosophy & LUCA School of Arts – Intermedia). Bringing together social research and collaborations with artists and designers, his interests revolve around issues of human and other-than-human entanglements, participation, experience, affect and cognition in the design and use of urban environments, other/ed knowledge practices, and questions of the urban, nature, and technology. In his approach, he draws on a range of social scientific sources such as science and technology studies (STS), design studies, multispecies studies, cognitive sciences, HCI, pragmatism, and the like. Greg is also curator and co-director at c-o-m-p-o-s-i-t-e, a Brussels-based contemporary art space, as well as guest lecturer at the Printmaking department at ENSAV La Cambre.
