I FEEL LIKE MY ANCESTORS HAVE LEFT ME A 1000 VOICE NOTES TO DECIPHER

FEEL LIKE MY ANCESTORS HAVE LEFT ME A 1000 VOICE NOTES TO DECIPHER is a lecture that delves into Samboleap Tol’s artistic practice. Tol’s work is heavily inspired by indigenist animist offering practices from Cambodia and the wider Southeast Asian region. Ancestral veneration practices became important to her as a way to directly connect with her ancestors, whom she feels estranged from due to postcolonial displacement and brutality.

AS IF IN THAT MOMENT THE CITY EMBRACES WOMEN

Six sessions programmed by Arefeh Riahi. Open to the public.

This program is to raise greater critical awareness of the ongoing situation in Iran, and to provoke throughs on this great opportunity to imagine a society otherwise — not only in Iran by across the world. Furthermore, it is to support conversations and reflections on the role of imagination as resistance — imagination as a gesture that cannot be surveilled by state authorities.

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.

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.

Screening: INTRODUCTION TO THE END OF AN ARGUMENT (1990) by Elia Suleiman & Jayce Salloum

This highly kinetic tableaux of uprooted sights and sounds works most earnestly to expose the racial biases concealed in familiar images. Relying on valuable snippets from feature films such as “Exodus”, “Lawrence of Arabia”, “Black Sunday”, “Little Drummer Girl”, and network news shows, the filmmakers have constructed an oddly wry narrative, mimicking the history of Mid East politics.

USES OF THE EROTIC: embodiment, movement & philosophies of liberation

Drawing on Audre Lorde’s timeless essay ‘Uses of the Erotic’ Alexine Gabriela invites you to delve into the erotic. Western knowledge systems, tools of the imperialist and capitalist regime of the West, dissociate us from our bodies which means that we have lost touch with the truths that lie deeply within the body, within the erotic.

Screening: 5 BROKEN CAMERAS (2011) by Emad Burnat & Guy Davidi

When his fourth son, Gibreel, is born, Emad, a Palestinian villager, gets his first camera. In his village, Bil’in, a separation barrier is being built and the villagers start to resist this decision. For more than five years, Emad films the struggle, which is led by two of his best friends, alongside filming how Gibreel grows. Very soon it affects his family and his own life. Daily arrests and night raids scare his family; his friends, brothers and himself are either shot or arrested. One camera after another is shot at or smashed. Each of the 5 cameras tells part of his story. (imdb)

Screening: ISRAELISM (2023) by Sam Eilertsen & Eric Axelman

Israel is central to the political and cultural life of the American Jewish community. But it has also become a deeply divisive subject, as painful cracks have emerged within the Jewish community over the Israel-Palestine conflict, inspiring argument, protest and even censorship. ISRAELISM explores the past, present and future of the relationship between American Jews and Israel. Dozens of American Jewish thinkers, community leaders and activists share stories of falling in love with Israel, and competing visions for a Jewish future, while Israelis and Palestinians describe how their lives are affected by the decisions of a community half a world away. Israelism asks how and why Israel became the cornerstone of American Judaism, what the consequences have been, and what will happen as divisions continue grow. (Imdb)

Storytelling as Narrative Reclamation of Healing Heritages

Dtorytelling as Narrative Reclamation of Healing Heritages: Disrupting Colonial Visuality of Healing Ontologies — is a critical diving into of archival ethnographic records of indigenous healing rituals and practices, in which Basia Diagne examines the role of the camera and image-making as a colonial apparatus of subjugation and narrative erasure. Drawing from Tina M. Campt’s method of activating the archive by “listening to images”, she invites the audience to depart from this historical narrative, and participate instead in a practice of listening & hearing what has been left unsaid.

Screening: GAZA FIGHTS FOR FREEDOM (2019) by Abby Martin

This debut feature film by journalist Abby Martin began while reporting in Palestine, where she was denied entry into Gaza by the Israeli government on the accusation she was a “propagandist.” So Abby connected with a team of journalists in Gaza to produce the film through the blockaded border. This collaboration shows you Gaza’s protest movement like you’ve never seen before. Filmed during the height of the Great March Of Return protests, it features riveting exclusive footage of demonstrations. The documentary tells the story of Gaza past and present, showing rare archival footage that explains the history never acknowledged by mass media. You hear from victims of the ongoing massacre, including journalists, medics and the family of internationally-acclaimed paramedic, Razan al-Najjar. At its core, ‘Gaza Fights For Freedom’ is a thorough indictment of the Israeli military for war crimes, and a stunning cinematic portrayal of Palestinians’ heroic resistance. (Abby Martin)

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.

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.
