Constant Worksessions

I regularly contribute to organising Worksessions in the context of Constant. They are intensive transdisciplinary situations to which participants from all over the world contribute. Every six months Constant opens such a temporary research lab; a collective working environment where different types of expertise come into contact with each other. During work sessions we develop ideas and prototypes that in the long-term lead to publications, projects and new proposals.

Iterations

The Iterations research project is initiated by four organisations who have a clear affinity with open approaches towards art, technology and society, and who feel a shared necessity to research the conditions in which artists who use technology work. Iterations consisted of a series of artist residencies, exhibitions, reflection meetings and exchanges that took place between 2017 and 2020. Artists and cultural practitioners were welcomed in situations to experiment with and reflect on what the future of collectivity, sharing and working together in digital and networked contexts can look like.

Hygiene

with Anne Bruggenkamp, Piet Zwart Institute, 2000 / 2001

“The Hygiene project examined the relationship between private and public spaces from the point of view of cleanliness. Do social hygienic standards determine the way people relate to each other? Making contact, socialising, being infected, purification: these terms were also interpreted as metaphors for the position of the artist in society. Do we develop artistic ideas isolated from society, or are we willing to be influenced by environmental circumstances?
