Event description

Description

This spring sees the opening of the 58th edition of the Venice Biennale, where the Dutch Pavilion will offer a presentation with new work by Remy Jungerman and Iris Kensmil. Under the heading of The Measurement of Presence, their work is brought together by curator Benno Tempel (director of Gemeentemuseum Den Haag).

In the run-up to this presentation, the artists and the curator, together with The Black Archives and the Mondriaan Fund, organize a debate on Saturday 23 February. During an extensive programme, a group of international artists, writers and curators will
take different points of view, while aiming to shed light on the meaning of transnationalism for the artistic practice. They will talk about the diaspora and the paths of particular forms and motifs, the gaps in knowledge of history, black feminism, the meaning of the invisible and the role of the ritual in contemporary art.

Afternoon program (2.30 PM - 6 PM):

- Sonia Boyce (artist, researcher, professor at the University of the Arts, London)
- Paul Goodwin (director of TrAIN, London, professor at the University of the Arts, London, curator)
- Mirjam Westen (senior curator of contemporary art at Museum Arnhem)

Evening program (7.30 PM - 10 PM):

- Charl Landvreugd (visual artist, curator, writer)
- Wayne Modest (head of Research Center of Material Culture, Leiden, professor of Material Culture and Critical Heritage Studies at the Vrije Universiteit, Amsterdam)

- Nancy Jouwe (lecturer of Visual Culture at Willem de Kooning Academy in Rotterdam, researcher at Utrecht University)
