Antares Gomez Bartolome

Antares Gomez Bartolome is a curator, artist, and writer based in Quezon City. He studied art history way back when and has taught courses in visual studies, materials, art history, and theory. He enjoys reading about sociology, geography, and food. His practice focuses on organization, redistribution, and collective work. His recent projects include producing the album of the blues band The General Strike and the publication of ‘A Draft Manual for Collective Work’ as part of Jonas Staal’s Training for the Future (Sternberg Press, 2022) which distils the experiences of cultural workers in effigy production into a guide for collective artistic practice. He currently serves on the Board of Directors of the Concerned Artists of the Philippines (CAP) and co-runs Masukal Bistro, an experiment in sustainability, collective learning, and small enterprise management.
