The Master Education in Arts cordially invites you for a lecture by Elizabeth Graham and Amal Khalaf.

You are already in it

Through a series of collective exercises and readings, we will discuss listening as a pedagogical space for collectivity, reciprocity and care. Sharing research developed from The Centre for Possible Studies and our current Serpentine Projects we will reflect on practices of listening, mapping, archiving and collective action. How do we move beyond the subject/object dynamic of social practice? Fred Moten says that ‘you are already in it’, you are already in the thing that you call for and that calls for you. What does it mean to work in socio-political context and how can community practice within arts institutions be a practice of solidarity?

* For the participants: Please bring a sound to share that responds to the question: what is the sound of solidarity? Recordings should last between 1 – 2 minutes.

This talk will present research where questions of interior and interiority are posed in relation to contemporary conditions of living, inhabitation, subjectivity and pedagogy through: a practice of designing with a curatorial inflection attending to arrangements (and rearrangements) of spatial, temporal and material relations; a practice of supervising PhD creative practice research candidates; and a practice of teaching interior design.

The MIARD T4 design studio ‘Showing and Producing Architecture’ run by Marta M Roy Torrecilla, is focus this trimester on exhibit design -and more precisely on exhibiting architecture- as a spatial practice to display and produce content. An essential part of the course is the contribution the students will do in November for the exhibition ‘Drawing Ambience. Alvin Boyarsky and the Architectural Association’ curated by Riet Eeckhout and Arnaud Hendrickx at deSingel Internationale Kunstcampus in Antwerp.

If at the heart of any exhibition is the notion of communication, coming October 25th session will take the form of an open discussion forum where students will have to reflect on their curatorial strategies and the intended message of their designs. Marina Otero Verzier, Director or Research at Het Nieuwe Instituut, will share her experience and knowledge on exhibition models, curatorial practices, social experiments, as well as their legacy and political implications. https://research-development.hetnieuweinstituut.nl/en/seminar-architecture-exhibitions-and-politics-temporal

BIO Marina Otero Verzier is an architect based in Rotterdam. She is Director of Research at Het Nieuwe Instituut, where she leads research initiatives such as ‘Automated Landscapes,’ focusing on the emerging architectures of automated labour, and ‘Architecture of Appropriation,’ on squatting as spatial practice.

Otero is the curator of WORK, BODY, LEISURE, the Dutch Pavilion at the 16th Venice International Architecture Biennale in 2018. And with the After Belonging Agency, she was Chief Curator of the Oslo Architecture Triennale 2016, which addressed the implications of architecture in contemporary processes of displacement and identity construction. From 2011-2015 Otero was based in New York, where she was Director of Global Network Programming at Studio-X, a global network of research laboratories for exploring the future of the built environment, which was launched by the Graduate School of Architecture Planning and Preservation at Columbia University in 2008.

Her work, recently awarded by The Graham Foundation, Design Trust, and the FAD Thought and Criticism Award, has been published in different books and journals. Otero has co-edited Promiscuous Encounters (GSAPP Books, 2014), Unmanned: Architecture and Security Series (Dpr-Barcelona, 2016), After Belonging: The Objects, Spaces, and Territories of the Ways We Stay In Transit (Lars Müller Publishers, 2016).

She currently teaches at ETSA Madrid and Royal College of Art in London. Otero studied architecture at TU Delft and ETSA Madrid. In 2013, as a Fulbright Scholar, she graduated from the M.S. in Critical, Curatorial and Conceptual Practices in Architecture at Columbia University GSAPP. She completed her PhD at ETSAM in 2016.

The Master Education in Arts cordially invites you for a lecture by Anna Santamouro, course tutor of the seminar Making Things Public.

The field of socially and politically engaged art practices and their implications outside the artistic and institutional realm have been widely researched and discussed in the last decade. This lecture seeks to redefine such collective processes through the lens of the theories of micropolitics associated primarily with Félix Guattari and the cultural theorist Suely Rolnik. By drawing a genealogy of micropolitics and of the political and philosophical debates that have been accompanying this concept since the 1960s in Europe in the lecture I look at micropolitics through the lens of post-Operatist Italian theorists, in particular Antonio Negri, Franco ‘Bifo’ Berardi and Maurizio Lazzarato, who have incorporated this notion as a conceptual and operative tool in their work. Micropolitics here provides a productive framework to conceptualize the proliferation of artistic and curatorial collective forms of intervention in the social and political field as well as their organisational dimension and possibility to function as constituent practices, considering in particular the Southern European and Mediterranean context and the austerity climate in which they emerge.

Anna Santomauro is Programme Curator at Arts Catalyst, an arts organisation based in London. She is also the Co-founder and Chief Curator of Vessel in Bari, Italy, a non-profit arts organisation that develops public programmes and alternative education projects to address contemporary social, political, and economic issues. Based in Birmingham for the last few years, Anna recently worked for Eastside Projects and is curator-in-residence at Grand Union. She is a part-time PhD candidate at the University of Wolverhampton.

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
