Culturele Zondag: Science in the City

On 3 April 2016, BAK hosts a mini-lecture on borders and citizenship, as part of the Cultural Sunday titled Science in the City, and which is organized on the occasion of the 380th anniversary of Utrecht University. In her short talk (presented twice, from 15.00 to 15.15 hrs and from 16.00 to 16.15 hrs) Jolle Demmers connects her expertise and work at Utrecht University to BAK’s discourse and current program.
Dr. Jolle Demmers is Associate Professor and co-founder of the Centre for Conflict Studies at Utrecht University. In this mini lecture she examines questions pertaining to borders and citizenship (e.g. who has “the right to have rights”?), and the role of art in creating a “counter reality.” She addresses these topics within the frame of the exhibition Unstated (or, Living Without Approval), which brings together insights from regions where diverse forms of statelessness appear, from Rojava to Palestine, and from Greece to refugees in limbo in the Netherlands.

Fragments of Repair: Repair & Listen

Throughout the duration of the project Fragments of Repair, Kader Attia engages in creating a new eponymous work in the form of a gradually unfolding podcast and sound installation in twelve parts, titled Repair & Listen. Drawing on transcultural epistemologies and lived experiences, the podcast investigates “repair” as a concrete practice to counter the psychological impact of living through a pandemic. The episodes of the podcast will become available on this page, throughout the duration of Fragments of Repair.
