Becoming More 22 May: DAI's The Kitchen / Not the RestaurantMonday 22 May
Location: Studio and auditorium Van Abbemuseum
Lecture performances by 13 DAI-students
Presenters: Florencia Almiron, Helen Zeru Araya, Alaa Abu Asad, Anna Bitkina, Ulufer Çelik, Valentina Curandi, Dimitra Kondylatou, Iva Kovač, Elvis Krstulovic, Mónica Lacerda, Mirjam Linschooten, Pitchaya Ngamcharoen, Nina Støttrup Larsen.
Embedded in a rigorous curriculum consisting of curated classes, seminars and collaborative workshops the Kitchen/Not The Restaurant offers the students of the DAI, a "free space" to 'speak' to an audience consisting of their fellow students, the public and guest respondents (invited artists, curators, writers, scholars).
Beginning their presentation with a key question, the student presents work by means of performance, talk, performance-lecture, screening, reading, choreography, play, demonstration, action, presentation of relevant aspects of praxis or work in progress or process, reference sets or, a combination of these formats.
Other than the limits of the given time and space frame of 20 minutes, there are no restrictions to the content and the format of the presentation. Following each presentation, in a conversational mode, the invited guest respondents try to engage with the question while simultaneously improvising an associative, spoken reflection.
Respondents: Michael Marder with Silvia Maglioni and Graeme Thomson.
Please note: The museum is closed on Mondays, so access will only be available to those who have reserved, via the Museum café entrance.
