In February 2017 BAK hosts The Southern Summer School
, a project initiated by artists Dorine van Meel and Nelmarie du Preez. The Southern Summer School
is a collective project that brings together art practitioners and cultural workers based in South Africa, the Netherlands, and the United Kingdom. It begins from the acknowledgment that the colonial involvement of the Dutch and the British empire in South Africa is not only a historical fact that may be consigned to the past, but that coloniality continues to operate in the present. Application forThe Southern Summer School
is through an open call, and participation is free of charge.
