New Professional Functions for the Incidental Person:
The Incidental Unit (IU) fosters practices that interrupt institutional codes and develop new patterns in law, health, education, administration and other sectors of society. The IU was developed with original members of the Artist Placement Group (APG, 1989 – 2009) and its successor, Organization + Imagination (O+I, 1989 – 2009). Since 2016 the IU has advanced this lineage of radical and rigorous artistic practice, with various organisational elements attending to the APG’s unfinished business. These include the IU’s Educational Working Group. It supports learning about the APG through, for instance, workshopping its powerful tool, the open brief, at RADMIN.
