LACK OF IMAGINATION by Alex Cecchetti Intended as a new sort of artist retrospective, Lack of Imagination brings together in the form of poems a catalogue of works that are invisible, missing or immaterial, all stemming from the artist’s lack of imagination. These performance narratives revive the tradition of the epic or the song of gesture to summon by an imaginative process the absent works. Alex Cecchetti describes the talk as ‘a multiple experience of serendipity and simultaneity that tries to reply to one single question: do invisible things see visible things?’

Visual artist, poet and choreographer, Alex Cecchetti creates performances and unclassifiable objects that can take place in exhibitions or elsewhere. He draws his inspiration from literature, philosophy, science or music. Whether it’s a stand-up comedy about death, a walk backwards in botanical gardens or a visit to the Louvre without the Louvre, each of his works is a real experience shared by a community of spectators. His poetic and gestural language mysteriously brings the participants to embark on rituals or journeys where the perception and the great existential questions are brought into play. His works are meant to develop in the spectators their visionary qualities.

For the past two years, he has been developing a narrative project of performances exhibition and a novel, as part of the project The Novel As Fantasy, edited by The Book Lovers and produced by the Ujazdowski Castle Center for Contemporary Art in Warsaw. There he has presented his personal exhibition Tamam Shud. He is the first artist to have benefited from a research residency at the Center of Contemporary Art at the Ferme du Buisson in 2016. In February 2017, he obtained a carte blanche at the Palais de Tokyo, in Paris, for a program entitled “Notte lusoria “. His performances and exhibitions have been presented in many institutions such as the Jeu de Paume, the Pompidou Center in Paris, the Serpentine Galleries in London, the Maxxi Museum of Contemporary Art in Rome, the Serralves Foundation in Porto, CAC Vilnius, M leuven or the foundation Sandretto Re Rebaudengo in Turin. Today La Ferme du Buisson hosts its largest monographic exhibition in France in collaboration with the CCA Warsaw. Next solo shows Spike Island, Bristol, UK in May 2018 and Void, Derry, Ireland in August 2018.

ROTTERDAM UNIVERSITY OF APPLIED SCIENCES (Hogeschool Rotterdam) PIET ZWART INSTITUTE MASTERS WILLEM DE KOONING ACADEMY

START DATE: December 2017 (2 weeks in December, then January-June 2018 maternity cover)

The Piet Zwart Institute, which hosts four Master programs of the Willem de Kooning Academy in Rotterdam, the Netherlands, is hiring a part-time course coordinator to cover a six-month maternity leave. 

The course coordinator is proficient in Dutch and English, and provides key administrative and operational support to the Master program to which they are assigned. They build relationships and liaise with students and teaching and support staff within the Piet Zwart Institute and across the Willem de Kooning Academy.  This role is a short-term maternity cover and you will be working closely with the Master Fine Art and Master Interior Architecture Design and Research programs, as well as for the Piet Zwart Institute in general. The course coordinator is line-managed by the course director they work directly with, but s/he reports to Jacqueline Lavooy, manager of operations and finance. This means you will be collaborating with the support teams of the Willem de Kooning Academy in order to align all administrative work. Besides the daily collaboration there’s a project group working on integration of administrative support for all master courses. 

We are seeking a colleague with solid administrative experience in a service-oriented environment, a great attitude toward team work, and a strong ability to operate independently, set priorities, meet objectives, and remain organized. Multi-tasking and problem solving are standard features of this role. You’ll be working on two locations (Willem de Kooning Academy and the Fine Art campus at Karel Doormanhof). Occasionally we will ask you to be flexible in your working hours, due to project requirements.

You will be the first point of contact for inquiries from current, past and potential students, as well as staff. You’ll provide information, advice, and be able to use your initiative and creativity to resolve issues with colleagues and students as they arise. Familiarity with Microsoft Office, databases and data entry, strong communication and correspondence skills are essential. Ideally, you’ll also be knowledgeable about Dutch and European higher education and enthusiastic about contemporary art and design.

This is a polyvalent role, but key duties include: developing and maintaining the academic schedule, supporting the course director in all aspects of the day to day administration of the Master, liaising with the teaching staff and students, administrative and academic record-keeping, assisting with student admissions, collaborating with support staff across the Willem de Kooning Academy, insuring procedures and guidelines are followed, and providing assistance in Master event coordination, publicity, and presence (Open Day/Open Studios, guest lectures, student-led projects and exhibitions, etc.).

All are welcome to celebrate THIS LITTLE ART by MFA core tutor Kate Briggs, published by Fitzcarraldo Editions

There will be a short reading + books + drinks! 

Date: Friday October 6th, 2017 Time: 6 – 8 pm Location: large project space, Piet Zwart Institute, Karel Doormanhof 45, 3012 GC Rotterdam. 

Praise for THIS LITTLE ART:

‘Kate Briggs’s This Little Art shares some wonderful qualities with Barthes’s own work – the wit, thoughtfulness, invitation to converse, and especially the attention to the ordinary and everyday in the context of meticulously examined theoretical and scholarly questions. This is a highly enjoyable read: informative and stimulating for anyone interested in translation, writing, language, and expression.’

— Lydia Davis, author of Can’t and Won’t

‘In This Little Art, Kate Briggs looks at the “everyday, peculiar thing” that is translation, testing it out, worrying at its questions. She deftly weaves her recurring threads (Roland Barthes, Crusoe’s table, The Magic Mountain, aerobic dance classes) into something fascinatingly elastic and expansive, an essay – meditation? call to arms? – that is full of surprises both erudite and intimate, and rich in challenges to the ways we think about translation. And so, inevitably, to the ways we think about writing, reading, artistry and creativity, too. As a translator, I’m regularly disappointed by what I read about translation – it feels self-indulgent, irrelevant in its over-abstraction – but This Little Art is altogether different. It comes to its revelations through practicality, curiosity, devotion, optimism, an intense and questioning scrutiny, as the work of a great translator so often does.’

— Daniel Hahn, translator of José Eduardo Agualusa and winner of the International Dublin Literary Award in 2017

‘Though it does not present itself as a memoir, a how-to guide, or a scholarly monograph, [This Little Art] derives its magic precisely from being all of these and more: gifting us not only with a genre-bending work of imaginative criticism, but also a fitting metaphor for all that the work of translation is, and can be.’

— Theophilus Kwek, Asymptote

Guest bios Irina Botea Bucan is an artist based in Birmingham and Bucharest. Over the past twenty years she has used multiple forms to consistently question dominant socio-political ideas. She develops her works through a process in which the performers are active participants. As a filmmaker her role is in constant flux, shifting from an observational to a reflective, participatory and performative mode.

Orlando Cairo is a community organizer and board member of Wi Masanga, the oldest running immigrant community center in the Netherlands. The space was founded in the early 1970s as a squat by Afro-Surinamese immigrants and still serves as a hub for that community in Rotterdam-West.

Florian Cramer is applied research professor with Creating 010, Hogeschool Rotterdam. He has a background in comparative literature and art history combined with DIY culture, technical-critical obsessions with ‘radical’ media and analog filmmaking, and a research interest in both structural poetics and politics of the arts.

Nicole Jordan is a singer-scholar based in Rotterdam, with an interest in the psyche of the performing artist. She teaches Music Psychology, is an Artistic Research coach for Masters students at Codarts in Rotterdam, and performs and collaborates with artists from diverse disciplines.

Pawel Kruk is an artist based in Bolinas, California. Kruk approaches each new piece like a novelist would a blank page: true and untrue fuse together, projects evolve, change, and are rewritten according to which character enters the story.

Time: Wednesday, May 24 18:00 – 19:30 Location: KINO, Gouvernestraat 129-133, 3014 PM Rotterdam Admission: tickets 5 euro

The Piet Zwart Institute Master Fine Art is pleased to invite you to KINO for an evening with the Brussels-based production and distribution platform Auguste Orts, founded in 2006 by Herman Asselberghs, Sven Augustijnen, Manon de Boer and Anouk De Clerq. The four artists, who all individually work predominately with the moving image, describe their practice as ‘…at the crossroads of cinema, video, audiovisual arts, documentaries, experimental films… where media and disciplines cross-fertilize each other.’ Closely collaborating with the organization’s director Marie Logie and business director Ann Goossens on facilitating both the production and distribution of their own projects, Auguste Orts attempts to address a wider discourse through supporting other artists (so-called guest productions) and occasionally organizing talks and screening programs.

Herman Asselberghs and Marie Logie have chosen to present two films at KINO, Asselberghs’s For Now (2017) and Fairuz & El Moïz Ghammam’s Oumoun (2017), the Dutch premiere for both.

For Now Herman Asselberghs, video, color, 4:3, stereo, Dutch spoken (Eng. St), BE, 2017, 32’ In times of great turmoil, time comes to a standstill. The central two movements in For Now are horizontal panoramas shots and firm, vertical edits. They show shifts of place without the journey. Nature, the wind, movement that occurs all on its own: this would seem to be the film’s real subject matter. The film unfolds in waves. Locations come and go, and come back again – Lewinsky Park, Maximilian Park, Habima Square, Lion Square, Zucotti Park, Times Square or pastoral landscapes at opposite ends of the Mediterranean Sea. The actions are the same: people wait, pass by, kill time. The contrasts between refugees and citizens, between tourists and activists, between Israelis and Palestinians, between Europeans and Americans, all become less clear. The repetition of these unclarified relationships, Asselberghs’ decisively filming after the fact, the enigmatic inclusion of hand signals – all these work together to reveal a certain constellation in which things again come together momentarily before taking their leave. It is a film running alongside the events, and alongside time. A contemporary film in the pure sense of the word – a way of being with time.

Oumoun Fairuz & El Moïz Ghamman, BE/TN, 2017, 14’ A dialogue across languages, across cultures, across generations. ‘Dear grandma, you’ll be surprised to hear my voice in your language…’ Those are the first words in a prerecorded, spoken letter never sent but instead played aloud in real time by the Brussels filmmaker to her elderly grandmother in Mahdia, Tunisia. In the company of the camera, the lines easily turn into a voice over that, merely by listening and looking attentively, in turn gradually transforms into a dialogue across languages, across cultures, across generations.

In this talk, Jeremiah Day will briefly introduce his practice before diving into an exploration of what Debbie Lusignan has started to call “the shadow work” – a process of taking personal responsibility for our own “co-dependent enabling” of this political system.

Lusignan, an activist and independent political commentator, came to achieve underground prominence during the Bernie Sanders Presidential Campaign (for example: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nrnACRaiuOU).

Intended as a response to Florian Cramer’s talk “The Alt-Right” Day will argue that while Trump and Wilders are for sure no solution, nor are they the problem.  Debbie Lusignan has started to suggest that we are the problem, and we are the solution.

Jeremiah Day (1974, USA) graduated from the art department of the University of California at Los Angeles in 1997 and lived and worked in Los Angeles until moving to Holland in 2003 to attend the Rijksakademie.  From 2000 to 2002 Day was artist-in-residence at Beyond Baroque Literary Arts Center in Los Angeles working with Fred Dewey, where he organized such events as “The Great Silence: 10 Years After the Burning,” commemorating the 1992 riots.  From 2012 to 2015 he was a member of General Public, Berlin.

His performances and installations have been presented at such venues as the Centre George Pompidou in Paris, the Liverpool and Thessaloniki Biennials, the Emily Harvey Foundation, New York and the CCA Glasgow, and his work is included in such collections as Frac Champagne Ardenne and the Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam.  Day is represented by Arcade, London and Ellen de Bruijne Projects, Amsterdam.
