Co-Action Device. I rather laugh

As part of the exhibition To Seminar, BAK organizes a series of performances, talks, and public meetings inquiring how learning about, with, and through art can become a collective practice of thinking and acting out imaginaries alternative to those of the crises-ridden contemporary.

On Thursday 23 March 2017 BAK presents Co-Action Device. I rather laugh, a performance by İnci Eviner in collaboration with Sırma Öztaş, Adnan Devran, Iris Ergül, Buse Aktaş, Şafak Çatalbaş, Ecem Sarıçayır, and students from the MaHKU Fine Art and MA Scenography programs at HKU University of the Arts Utrecht, Utrecht. Following a ten-day series of happenstance performances and workshops on BAK’s ground floor, this performance is a culmination of a collective effort to search for artistic tools that form new political and collaborative forms of “being together.”

The doors open at 19.00 hrs. to give the opportunity to visit the exhibition. The performance begins at 19.30 hrs. Registration is not required.
