AMAonline, an editorial project of the Museum of Contemporary Art of the Basque Country, is structured around three sections, each inspired by the work of the feminist science fiction writer Ursula K. Le Guin: while ‘Harvesting Knowledge’ derives from her influential essay “The Carrier Bag Theory of Fiction”, ‘A Matter of Words’ and ‘No Time To Spare’ directly quote two of her last collections of short-forms. This platform aims at continuing her practice of disseminating dispatches on what matters to the present of art.
Harvesting knowledge Every month, a collaborator of the museum hand-picks a selection of what they have been reading, watching, or listening to online recently
A matter of words Poetic, theoretical, fictional, analytical, scholarly, personal, written or oral: art discourse takes on various forms, and adopts different styles and genres within the museum’s activities
No time to spare Writers, curators, artists, thinkers from various disciplines share reflexive and speculative insights on the future of artistic and institutional practices
