Citizens and Subjects: Practices and Debates

Citizens and Subjects: Practices and Debates is part of the Dutch contribution to the 52nd International Art Exhibition – La Biennale di Venezia, 2007. Taking the work Citizens and Subjects by Aernout Mik as its point of departure, Practices and Debates is a series of lectures, seminars, conversations and a master course envisioned as an extension of the Dutch Pavilion “back” to the Netherlands and to other sites of “practices” and “debates” invested in the urgent task of contributing to a new imaginary about the world.

The lecture series is developed by BAK, basis voor actuele kunst in collaboration with Utrecht University and its Studium Generale.
