S.M.A.K. going GAGA
Until March 14, 2010, the Museum of Contemporary Art S.M.A.K. in Ghent, Belgium, runs the comprehensive exhibition "GAGARIN the Artists in their Own Words - The first Decade". On show are the complete artist's writings published in GAGARIN and a selection of artworks by the same artists from the museum collection and special loans. GAGARIN the Artists in their Own Words is a recent international art magazine, entirely dedicated to the publication of original writings by artists who are now working, anywhere in the world. Recently, the complete GAGARIN oeuvre was acquired by the MoMA, the Guggenheim and the Thomas J. Watson Library of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, all in New York, and by the Getty Foundation in Los Angeles. To celebrate its unique concept and the 20 issues published since 2000, S.M.A.K. will now organize the special GAGARIN event with the alarming title "S.M.A.K. going GAGA" on Saturday, March 13th, the next-to-last day of the exhibition.
The program of "S.M.A.K. going GAGA" is as follows:
11:00 am - 12:30 pm :
GAGARIN: out of orbit into the museum
This presentation and ensuing panel discussion will examine originality when the pages of GAGARIN are removed from bound gatherings and displayed across gallery walls. Concepts of originality in GAGARIN the Artists in their Own Words will be discussed, assessed, and put to work analyzing artist's texts as they appear transposed from a journal to an exhibition. The members of the panel are:
- Simon Deakin, presenter, artist. He is currently doing doctoral research on GAGARIN at The University of Leeds (UK). He is a graduate of the Ontario College of Art , the Slade School of Fine Art, and Goldsmiths College.
- Olaf Nicolai, artist. His work was a/o shown at the 3rd RIWAQ Biennial in Ramallah, "Animism" at MuHKA in Antwerp & "La Boule de Yoyante" - a narration performed in 10 episodes (May-December) at 10 not art-related places in Venice, Budapest, Rome, Amsterdam, Munich, Berlin, Sipan (Hr.), Paris, Palermo & Santiago de Chile.
- Jonathan Lahey Dronsfield, Reader in Theory and Philosophy of Art at the University of Reading UK. He sits on the Executive Committee of the Forum for European Philosophy at the London School of Economics. 
- Asja Szafraniec is a postdoctoral fellow in the Department of Philosophy at the University of Amsterdam. She studied at the Warsaw University, the University of Amsterdam, the SUNY at Buffalo and the Johns Hopkins University. She is the author of "Beckett, Derrida and the Event of Literature" (Stanford UP 2007). 
2:00 pm - 5:00 pm :
GAGARIN: reading marathon
The panel discussion will be followed by a new ground breaking "reading marathon" with artists who have contributed to GAGARIN. They will read their GAGARIN text, or eventually another text of their own, before a live audience. The artists who will take part in the reading marathon are Boris Achour, Guillaume Bijl, Pierre Bismuth, Jota Castro, Adam Chodzko, Michel François, Joseph Grigely, Kati Heck, IngridMwangiRobertHutter, Suchan Kinoshita, Job Koelewijn, Gabriel Kuri, Bernd Lohaus, Mark Manders, Ria Pacquée, Philippe Van Snick, Berend Strik, Jennifer Tee, Danh Vo, Franziska & Lois Weinberger.
