Report (Not Announcement)

BAK, basis voor actuele kunst presents the publication Report (Not Announcement). On the occasion of the book launch, a conversation will be held with artist and curator Delphine Bedel (Amsterdam) and the artists Amalia Pica (Amsterdam), Andrea Schneemeier (Research-in-Residence Utrecht) and Igor Sevcuk (Utrecht). It will be followed by drinks and bites and also marks the conclusion of the exhibition Unevenly, on view since 23 April 2006 at BAK. The language used this afternoon is English and entrance is free

Report (Not Announcement) is a project by BAK in collaboration with e-flux (electronic flux corporation). The Report consists of accounts and documents, namely reports, provided by artists, curators, and critics reflecting on their own ontological states of leaving and arriving from the zone of transition, non-belonging, and “suspension.” Under the condition of accelerated mobility and its imposed limits, Report (Not Announcement)explores the potential of what is bracketed off by the constant travels and movements by international cultural practitioners.

Stitching, Writing, Singing

Community Portal hosts...

In all continents, people have built matriarchal cosmologies sustained by complex rituals. In the advent of main modern religions and after centuries of colonizing invasions, the goddesses of antiquity were suppressed by the patriarchal structures that consolidated our era. However, they found ways to speak to us in the language of patterns, melodies, and poems. This workshop uses the voice as a method to reveal the presence of goddesses.
