In February 2017 BAK hosts The Southern Summer School
, a project initiated by artists Dorine van Meel and Nelmarie du Preez. It brings together art practitioners and cultural workers based in South Africa, the Netherlands, and the United Kingdom and begins from the acknowledgment that the colonial involvement of the Dutch and the British empire in South Africa continues to operate in the present. In the months preceding The Southern Summer School
workshops and reading groups will be organized in South Africa, the Netherlands, and the UK.
