Suturak. Cerca a lo próximo

Our installation "Work in Progress" will be shown in "Suturak, Cerca de lo próximo", an extensive exhibition on contemporary Basque art at the San Telmo Museum. The show, realized in collaboration with Artium, Basque Museum-Center for Contemporary Art, aims to contextualise the strategies with which art and artists relate to their environment, emphasizing their capacity to translate and shape the construction of identity and community.

Mardin Biennial postponed

As Turkey places its cities under curfew to disperse the protests against the advance of the IS into Kobanê, the organisation of the upcoming Mardin Biennial issues a statement, postponing the event until further notice. As artists invited to participate in this biennial, we respect this decision, and express our support for the team:

"We now hear a cry that is greater than our voices and it comes from Kobanê. Kobanê that stands ever so firmly against the barbarism of its attackers has become the bleeding wound in the hearts of all those who live in this region. We would have liked to carry out the 3rd International Mardin Biennial as originally planned, but we know that in order for the voice of Kobanê to be heard, we need to go quiet and make all necessary efforts for its voice to be heard more. We are not afraid. On the contrary, we are hopeful that Kobanê’s voice will indeed be heard. That is why we have decided to postpone until further notice the 3rd International Mardin Biennial, which was supposed to take place between October 17 and November 17. It will take place in near future for the sufferings which take place right in front us to be seen and heard."

Breaking the Bank

De positie van de kunstenaar binnen de samenleving is steeds in flux: van kroniekschrijver tot romantisch genie, van verteller tot provocateur. Vandaag de dag is de kunstenaar steeds meer belast met het oplossen van de kwalen van de samenleving. Is de progressieve politiek van de kunstenaar verstrikt geraakt in de neoliberale val? Zo ja, hoe en met welke middelen? Wat voor soort kunst levert het op en welke vormen van verzet kunnen we ontdekken? - Publieke programma op 16 oktober 2014, om 20.00 in TENT Rotterdam, Witte de Withstraat 50.
