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.

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.
