transdisciplinary art research, practice and activism

Suzanne van Rossenberg

Lost in translation

In the Dutch art scene and education system, the use of the English language is as common as Dutch. My MA Fine Art course was English spoken; I’ve worked in international collaborations ever since; and, I did most of my ‘art writing’ in English, whilst living in the Netherlands. The words ‘kunst’ and ‘art’ became interchangeable to me. After 3,5 years in the UK (where I hardly use the word ‘kunst’), this has changed. ‘Kunst’ does not have the same meaning anymore as ‘art’. They have separated again. What could ‘kunst’ start meaning (again)?

Discussion on 20 May at Lewisham Arthouse

flyer

Hello!

You are warmly invited to a discussion on research, (art) practice and activism on Saturday 20 May, 1.30-2.15 at Lewisham Arthouse (140 Lewisham Way, London SE14 6PD).

I will give a short introduction on the use of research, practice and activism for social change, including the role of (feminist) art in collaborations between researchers, practitioners and activists. Attention will be paid to art’s conceptual/theoretical, socio-political and economic structures that are known to perpetuate social inequality. What research, artistic & activist strategies can create intersectional inclusivity? Participants will be able to further explore this theme in group discussions.

This discussion is part of ‘What Happened Between?’ (15-21 May), an event hosted by Sophie Chapman and Kerri Jefferis. Details of this event can be found (and will be updated) on the website of Lewisham Arthouse (www.lewishamarthouse.org.uk) and this Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/events/1968555220034240/.

Sophie and Kerri invite you to bring examples of your own work and share them in the gallery space.

It would be lovely to see you there!
