book in the making ~ send your potions, remedies, diy healing methods

Once upon a time, in a lecture in the fall of 2023, author and researcher Claudia Pallisé talked about how in the middle ages people gathered rec pipes for curing illness, easing trouble of the heart, and preventing sickness. These recipes were handed from hand to hand, home to home. As they circulated they would be improved and modified according to what seemed to work best.
In the 21st century we have an advances, ever evolving practice of science and medicine. Still many of the ancient recipes, remedies and curing hacks continue to circulate in our daily lives.
Incurable conditions by the institutionalised medical sphere such as chronic pain, endometriosis, psychosomatic pain and vulvadynia have made self care practices and DYI treatment a necessity in our contemporary reality as well. New forms of remedies, healing meathods and DIY treatments are being born in people’s deb rooms, toilets, kitchens and shared online or in intimate conversation.
Now we are on a mission to gather it all and archive it into a book. Be it ancient, vintage or new - sci-fi, hippie, tech, dirty, sweet, in testing or known for hundreds of years… We want YOU to send us your family potions, remedies, DIY healing methods and recipes, perfected with time and word of mouth - just like CranberryJuice.

Philosophy Seminars: Bataille on Animality

The Philosophy Seminars of the spring-summer semester will focus on George Bataille’s writings on animals and animality. Over the course of three seminars, convened by Tom Vandeputte, we will discuss Bataille’s famous texts and lectures on the figuration of the human and the animal in the Lascaux cave paintings; the place of the animal in his theory of religion and the sacred; and the ethical and political implications of his brief essay The Friendship Between Man and Beast, addressing the subjugation and liberation of animal life. Besides Bataille’s philosophical reflections, we will also discuss his notes for an unrealised film, found among his papers at the time of his death. The seminar series is open to all, but registration is necessary and a commitment to attending all three seminars is appreciated.

Ege Yılmaztürk & Rocco Enzo ter Haar: Between the Folds: Poetics and Politics of Curtains

What is revealed and what is concealed? The answer to this question can be playful and poetic but is also always political. In The Netherlands, curtains are often open on street viewing houses. Although many say this is to let more light in, it nevertheless also functions as a form of social control. The density of these draped screens filters narratives; some allow to leak through and others not penetrating its thick fabric. The curtain becomes a border that witnesses and mediates the private and the public sphere. Its folds operate in a movement between the poetry and politics of imagination.

BLACK PRESENCE

For over 300 years, adults and children from various parts of Africa, were abducted and shipped across the Atlantic in inhuman conditions, by mostly Dutch slave traders, to the former Dutch colonies of Suriname and the Caribbean islands of Aruba, Bonaire, Curaçao, Saba, Sint Eustatius and Sint Maarten. The indigenous peoples of the numerous Dutch colonies were not spared either. In Asia, enslaved people were traded to areas under the administration of the United East India Company (VOC). For generations, people were born into slavery. They were forced into space labour for their entire lives, serving the Dutch plantation owners.

Settling Care #7: A retro-perspective

In this 7th session we embrace a term coined by the French curator and Documentation X-organizer Cathérine David — retro-perspective — to allow us to look back at what we experienced and talked about the first six sessions, and to look forward with the knowledge we gained.

To organise a focused meeting, we invite you to reflect on the most intense moment during the past months. Was it the conference on Motherhood in the arts? Was it Natascha Hegenbeek’s three-journey or Delphine Bedel activist lecture on inequality in the arts? Or was it the being and talking together in a safe space? Which topics did you find stimulating and which not? And, not in the last place: how do you think we should proceed?

other indias with contributions from Rah Naqvi will guide you through — spirit of dissent — a sonic intervention informed by a very long history of dissent, by elders and peers who have founded the basis for our resistance. These sustained practices of continuance, of resilience, amidst adversity, born from, and despite systemic oppression, have created alternative pathways to liberation. Pathways, that reject and urge a dismantling of the current Brahminical structures of governance and the imposition of its future.

TO NOSE. FROM NOSE.

Dear Olya,

I’m writing you a letter from my nose, in the sense that I depart and arrive from the nose and to the nose as I nose. My point is that I have traveled far, but I know that the place of my face that is the “I” where my story unfolds and folds in a void of not-knowing is a song of home-coming too as the paradox of leaving and the impossibility to leave within the breathing time walking upon the soils of the earth bordered by law and tongues drawn and woven into streams of images and semantics. We have known each other for a few months now and one of the things that connect us is the impossibility of speech and the perpetual trying, trying, and trying.

Tools of Relations

the last few years have seen art academies across the netherlands lurch from one crisis to another, suspended in a constant state of crisis-management. the responses have varied across, and within, academies, but a closer look reveals a number of root causes that contribute to the issues rife within our art academies. these issues are difficult to address on a micro, per-academy level, through short-lived instagram accounts, or in moments of rupture and crisis. they need to be addressed through sustained, ongoing efforts - in alliance, together. this is already happening in a myriad of ways, and our project - ‘tools of relation’ - seeks to create a commons of these efforts. to create a living archive of these conversations, actions, interventions, conflicts, resolutions, and alliances.

Context matters: A conversation with Elisa van Joolen and Anouk Beckers

We are so invested, many of us, in the idea of ownership. I came up with this design, so it is mine; I paid for this bag, so I own it. Upon this foundation, capitalism is built: we buy and we sell, we own and disown, and goods circulate from one owner to the next. But what does it mean, really, to own something? Can something ever really be ours? Might there be other ways, besides individual ownership, to relate to objects? And if so, what would that mean for our systems of production and consumption?

Platform Alliances #1 Tools

What are the tools for alliances? How do we establish solidarity networks? Can a model of practice and form of governance be considered as a work of art? And what does it mean to publish/make public in a platform framework?

Voice, sound, technology and binaries: an audio essay featuring Sasha Geffen

We, a group of five, came together because of a mutual interest in sound. We are interested in how we listen and how sound is being used in its own materiality to foster experimental and border-crossing ways of making and thinking. At the end of 2020, we started a small online reading group where each one of us proposed a book they wanted to read. One of them was Sasha Geffen’s book Glitter up the Dark, which explores the intersections of gender, pop culture, the body, and technology. We reached out to Sasha and asked if they would be interested in collaborating with us. The following audio is composed by a mix of excerpts from their book, Sasha’s own voice, songs, samples, and voices from our friends.

Embodied Learning Lexicon: B is for Breath

In a culture that persistently lures towards a distrust of what cannot be seen, our physical reality is becoming increasingly invisible. This text reflects on one of the most basic, yet important, factors of our physicality: breath. I will examine the phenomenological and ecological implications of a culture that too often takes breath for granted, and ask: What can a pandemic which targets the lungs teach about a cultural relationship with grief?

All around me's twisting, twisting

All around me's twisting, twisting draws from past research undertaken by Rosie Haward and Naomi Credé around embodiments of dizziness and giddiness, focusing on the affects, histories and political potential these sensations give rise to. Dizziness or giddiness can alter our spatial, temporal and bodily relation to the world, and result in feelings of disorientation.

(closed) Open Call: Intercurricular Programmes

Future Practices is the title of the multi-year framework from which the editorial board works in the coming years. The framework is in line with discussions previously held by the editorial board: where is the potential of the intercurricular programs in relation to future art and design education? What does studio practice and material research look like in the future and what role do the workshops play in this? How are students prepared for a field that is constantly evolving? How do they want to manifest themselves after their studies? Future practices concerns students and teachers from all departments as well as workshop specialists.
