The Bureau

The Bureau is a home for creative services.

Recent sessions took place in Vilnius and Kaunas. Our autumn appointment dates will be announced soon.


Every programme needs an office. Beyond logistical management of Autarkia, The Bureau extends open consulting appointments to creative practitioners, in person or remotely. These sessions offer personal advice and professional conversation.

Our creative service model is inspired by Lori Waxman’s ongoing 15-year project ’60 wrd/min art critic’, notably featured in its own office space at Documenta 13 in Kassel. Waxman provided new critical writing to each artist entering, increasing accessibility to professionalized art.

Sessions will be documented and can result in a written response tailored to your professional and creative needs. Topics might be production, technical advice, or a second opinion on a current project.

We ask all visitors to complete a simple intake form for our consultants to determine your specific needs and research interests.

For the moment, we conduct sessions in English only but aim to offer other languages in future.

Additional sessions and guest consultants will be announced on a rolling basis.

The Bureau is a project initiated by JL Murtaugh, an artist, writer, designer, and consultant.
