4 TAXIS (QUATRE TAXIS)
Founded by Michel Aphesbero and Danielle Colomine. The pedagogical and artistic experience of the Studio "Pensée Nomade" or " Nomadic Workshop of the Bordeaux School of Fine Art" in France. It looked for ways to reinvent and rethink the modalities and practicalities, and artistic practice itself, from the mixed legacy of counter-culture, Situationist International, French Theory, Martin Kippenberger, Walter Benjamin a.o.…" A teaching experiment where students dwelled in travel and picked knowledge on the side of the road rather than in classrooms. "Artistic education has to provide new conditions to think differently and to jettison accumulated traditions and inherited categories". The "Nomadic Workshop" travelled to different cities to live for a short period of time and an issuer of the magazine was published as a result: 1980 : Berlin, 1981 : Barcelone, 1983 : Los Angeles, 1986 : Madrid, 1987 : São Paulo, 1991-92 : Séville.
