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 Tuesday 21 March 2017 BAK organizes the seminar Institution, a discussion with İnci Eviner, Sara van der Heide, and Jan Verwoert, moderated by Marijke Hoogenboom. Bringing to the discussion the triad of institution/transference/text that Roland Barthes writes about in “To the Seminar” (1974), this seminar takes a close look at the notion of the institution from a contemporary perspective. The exhibition artworks by İnci Eviner and Sara van der Heide form a point of departure.

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