Centre de recherche urbaine de Montréal (CRUM) will offer its services as Documentalist in Residence at articule during the entire programming season 2009-2010. Our specialised expertise will facilitate the realisation of articule’s programming objectives in line with its 30th anniversary. As a non-profit organisation that operates through symbiotic (parasitic) infiltration, the CRUM enhances your communication tools through decentralised services, rendered on-site and at a distance for maximum convenience. Our tactical operations include CRUM Information Consultation Services (ICS), featuring editorial direction and intervention (with extensive use of Red Pen), in-depth exploration of articule’s Archives, and dissemination of semi-factual Truths; CRUM Organisational Facilitation (OF), universal maintenance activities and corporate retreat facilitation for cultural workers (based on The CRUM Method™); and CRUM Response to Artistic Concepts (RAC), including, but not limited to, subjective interpretation, automatic composition, and exploratory research into combustible materials. With an exclusive synthesis of contemporary communication networks and superseded technology, CRUM brings your message to the world with clarity and alacrity. Help us help you capitalise on your objectives. All deliverables subject to CRUM Approval. Licensing available upon request.”


The Centre de recherche urbaine de Montréal (CRUM) is a symbiotic (parasitic) research group with no exhibition space of its own. It uses pre-existing networks to present diverse projects. The CRUM is composed of five members with varied backgrounds — architectural theory, information science, experimental sound composition, urban aesthetics, and universal maintenance — who share a common interest in collaboratively exploring links between art and urban space.
