HOW DO BUILDINGS CARE? Session three: INTIMACY

24/09/2017. La Loge, Brussels.

With Andros Zins-Browne, Hilde Heynen, Slow Reading Club, Hannah Quinlan, Ingel Vaikla, Tobias Zielony, Elise van Mourik, Cookies.

What type of architecture makes one feel safe, at ease, loved, and cared for? In which way is space imbricated in human well-being? In common architectural discourse, relatively little

attention is paid to the embodied, affective, and relational aspects of site and space. La Loge addresses this gap by inviting artists, designers, and architects to critically explore architecture in relation to social and affective intensities.

RABBIT IS THE NEW BEEF

28/06/2017

a project by Curatorial Studies at KASK.

With Liesbeth Doms (BE), Luca Frei (CH), Oscar Hugal (BE), Karen Amanda Moser (CH), Benny Van den Meulengracht-Vrancx (BE), Bent Vande Sompele (BE), Elise van Mourik (CH/NL).

Rabbit Is The New Beef investigates liminal space; a notion describing the unpronounced distance that demarcates the undefined transition from one thing to the other. Accordingly, liminal space is an interesting concept to explore social, artistic and political dynamics we normally can’t grasp. Through a series of semi-scripted events and exhibition, the project wishes to generate an encounter, through which our gaze is redirected from overt points of reference to that which is hidden in plain sight.

The participating artists flirt with thresholds in our prescribed and overly administered world in order to engage with our expectations. As well as introducing new ways of seeing. Through the quasi-fictions they engage with, fixed outcomes are thrown into doubt and a new compliant situation might occur. Through these artistic attitudes, the mechanisms of our attention economy, both destructive and constructive, become a focal point. Exploring the “in-betweenness” of “what was” and “the next”, improvisation is given a chance.

Authenticity is dead. Long live authenticity!

26/010/16 - 30/10/16. Groupshow during IMPAKT New Media Fesitval, Utrecht (NL).

Curated by Bas Hendrickx and Barbara Cueto.

With Korakrit Arunanondchai, Amalia Ulman, DIS, Harm van den Dorpel, General Idea, Oliver Laric, Jonas Lund & Sebastian Schmieg, Elise van Mourik, Beny Wagner.

The aphorism “Authenticity is dead, long live authenticity!” proves vital in the prolific debate on authenticity in the post- digital age. Authenticity is in the eye of the beholder. There is a general understanding of its meaning,

oftentimes based on notions of introspection and soul-searching; some, however, deem the debate altogether irrelevant. However, for a younger generation of artists, new technologies contribute to a new understanding of the scope of authenticity. Digital tools, such as the blockchain, prove valuable when it comes to tracing provenance, or the attribution of authorship. Increasingly, artists advance the circulation of their work from burden to strategy.
