We produce space, and our spaces produce us…
Documentation is both a self-conscious performance and a process of unveiling.
We document to reveal the connections between our spaces, actors, and labor.
We document the elements that form a practice of recurring events.
We document to acknowledge the thinness of the line between cultural production, collective maintenance, and self sustenance
We document to demystify and make transparent work that is situated in the world, and that is critically part of the now.
We document to investigate:
The Everyday and the Mundane
The Ethics of Care
Aesthetics, and the links between
Media or Mediums
Sounds / Footage / Images / GIFs…or Animations / Quotes / References
Processes…from the digital realm of email to the recording screen or Zoom call
In the constant act of maintaining this diffuse and sublimated landscape, we document to reclaim the body as primary actor and instrument.

About Episode 10

In Documenting Practice, the tenth episode of StorefrontTV Season 3, BRANDT : HAFERD documents the sustenance of a practice, exploring collaboration as a series of daily, monthly, and seasonal “rituals.” Documenting Practice breaks down barriers between domestic, public, and professional realms, proposing that, in order to maintain culture, we must learn to radically conflate and intersect spaces that may have previously seemed distinctly separate by design.

In case you missed it this Wednesday, you can watch the ninth episode of StorefrontTV Season 3, 2Maintain by Devin Kenny, on Storefront’s website and YouTube channel. Each past episode of StorefrontTV will be viewable on Instagram Live for 24 hours, as well as on Storefront’s web platforms afterward.
About Episode 9
In 2Maintain, the ninth episode of StorefrontTV Season 3, Devin Kenny considers various forms of Black self-care and sociality, exploring why some are considered harmless and others are criminalized. He tends to houseplants using a nail clipper, a tool normally associated with human hygiene, and presents a new song, “if you get arrested (demo),” as well as an original poem. 2Maintain interrogates the notion of maintenance in our time, presenting a juxtaposition between two current realities: police are to maintain the status quo, while self-care is to maintain the spirit.
