The Bureau of Noncompetitive Research is a collective with varying geometry, and it is actively seeking a fourth member to help fulfill tasks and build a better work environment. 

In this public performance that probes the interviewing process to reveal all of its absurdity, the group proposes to meet potential candidates in order to find the ideal employee.

The Interviews is part of The Bureau of Noncompetitive Research, a public engagement project by the collective of the same name. This project is presented in conjunction with the exhibition Rirkrit Tiravanija: JOUEZ/PLAY.

This event will take place in French and in English.

Biographies

The Bureau of Noncompetitive Research is a group of artists and researchers who explore how slow philosophy, dialogue, collaboration, pedagogy, and public space intersect. Founded in 2021, the Bureau has taken on academic and artistic projects, namely Slowness and the Institution (2021), Pedagogy and Time (2022), and Giving Nothing (2023). In this iteration, the Bureau comprises Victoria Stanton, José Cortés, and Stacey Cann.

Stacey Cann is a performance artist and researcher interested in ideas of work, endurance, and collaboration.

José Cortés is a transdisciplinary artist whose work juxtaposes value and mundane matters in multimedia, public space, and pedagogic projects.

Victoria Stanton is an undisciplined performance artist whose infiltrating/relational works explore the role of rest, pause, and liminal space in artistic processes.
