Abstract or Description:

The Blackwater Polytechnic is a visual art organisation operated by Freddie Robins and ben Coode-Adams as an umbrella for their events and curatorial projects. They are based on their Family's blackcurrant farm in rural Essex in a barn which they have converted into a live/work space.

The article, 'Resistant Materials', examines the idea of the local vs the international in regards to artists and the art world. It is published in Sluice magazine a thematic publication for artist-run projects. The theme of this edition being Inter/nationalism. The artist/curator-led scene is often tied to the local (usually influenced by funding parameters or lack of funding altogether). But there is often an awareness that if the local isn’t positioned within a broader inter/national context that it risks becoming parochial.
