On Fail[l]ed Tales and Ta[y]lors uses inefficiency, exhaustion, incompleteness, mistakes and failure as conceptual and methodological resources. Their use as aesthetic and political principles that shape the exhibition amplifies its ability to question the present and challenge the dominant standards within and beyond art.

The exhibition includes artistic proposals that use the above-mentioned concepts as the catalysts of their practice, creating a network formed by potential pasts and futures of utopian ways of doing and undoing. Mainly through interdisciplinary research and through long-term collaborative processes and experimental productions, the proposals ask questions about the meaning itself of creation, the processes that it is made up of, within art and their institutions. 

Based on a residency and on a seminar given at Tabakalera during the year 2018, On Fail[l]ed Tales and Ta[y]lors expands the reflection that the Madrassa collective started in 2015 and which was materialised in the exhibition Something to generate from in 2016 at the Kunsthal Aarhus.

Madrassa explores collective and collaborative forms and practices, and operates in a wide variety of fields and areas of knowledge such as art, agriculture, heritage and education, to propose other spaces and other disciplines through which to understand the creation of new forms -material and institutional- and which use artistic practice as a starting point.

  1. Ala Younis
