Muster Station: The School of Beginnings
Saturday 3rd (12.00-20.00) - Sunday 4th February (12.00-18.00)
Tate Exchange, Blavatnik Building, Level 5, Tate Modern.
Muster Station is a rethinking and regrouping; an evolving group of artists that emerged as a direct consequence of the closure of their art school and the need to produce a new imagination for their agency. Through a programme of workshops, talks, interactions and interventions Muster Station will explore the means by which artists produce in response to constantly shifting conditions of space, time, audience and the ebb and flow of economic and political support. Embracing and inventing new forms of play, 'production' at Tate Exchange will evolve methods that artists can use in order to develop their capacity to catalyse and enhance visions for alternative solutions and other ways of being.
The School of Beginnings has been devised for Muster Station by Adam Chodzko and Sophie Chapman.

Muster Station is a new artist collective, created in response to the University of Kent’s planned closure of its School of Music and Fine Art.
Muster Station is a hyper studio complex for our Fine Art students and alumni; it will use the school's successes and visions as a battery to power future explorations of learning and practice.

In this effort to invent the future, Muster Station provides a network for art practice and research, experimentation, discussion and resistance and a forum to forge a new collective identity after graduation.
