The class of 2021 of the Master of Education in Arts spent a significant part of their study during the COVID-crisis. This made them increasingly aware of physical presence as a meaningful aspect of education, as well as of an urgency to devote themselves to a collective decision-making process in preparing their research and presentation. In their search to stay connected to each other as a group, they experienced the complexities of participating in a collective practice for an unknown period of time, while at the same time going through their individual research trajectories.

This process influenced their sense of collectivity and spurred them to stay in constant “preparation for being together”. While the radical proposal of a collective graduation project didn’t fall through, alternatively, they started searching and probing to share a digital space and complied a website/publication together entitled: preparations for being together in an unknown period of time. We hope you will enjoy wandering through this binder and time capsule of a specific historical moment.

Class of 2021: Maud Berden; Annemarie van den Berg; Marjolijn Gunst; Anita Hrnić; Lisanne Janssen; Márton Kabai; Gundega Melberga; Diogo Rinaldi (Mark Liberman, Sanne Cobussen: present in their absence)

Students and tutors come from around the globe, bringing a variety of languages, perspectives, cultural influences and international connections to an intimate learning environment.   The Master of Education in Arts is two-year part-time research master. The relation between practice and theory is a central feature of the program: students design and experiment with pedagogical models and tactics, as much as critically research them. Focusing on the interstices of research, pedagogical experimentation, interdisciplinary art/design practices, cultural critique and social practices, the course welcomes practitioners in the field of secondary and higher art/design education, museum education, as well as artists and designers, challenging the boundaries between socially engaged practices and experimental pedagogy. We regard collaborations, cross-pollinations and exchanges to be of essential value to the future of education. Position The course has the ambition to mark 2021/2022 as a year to re-focus its engagement with public knowledge production directed to students within the course and the larger education al community.

Workshop UMAD decolonizing rituals: Friday June 11, 16.00 – 18.00 hrsWith: Fazl Shairmahomed and Rolando VázquezLocation: Zoom: on line workshop and film screeningAdmission: Free, because of the max. amount of 30 participants please register via demsm@hr.nl (deadline: June 8).

Zoom link for the workshop: https://hogeschoolrotterdam.zoom.us/j/98242836999?pwd=SmxFb1pIczRNTWI0VkdNM1B1WEhMQT09

Hereby the Master of Education in Arts cordially invites you to take part in the workshop and film screening UMAD decolonizing rituals. In this workshop, featuring the performance artist Fazle Shairmahomed and teacher and researcher Rolando Vázquez, you will be invited to engage in a conversation around the question: where do political and spiritual processes of decolonization intertwine? This question will be explored through a writing ritual, viewing the short film UMAD and spoken word. The workshop requires light reading and preparation of a simple ritual before participation.

In the film UMAD (Hindi: emotional overflow) you witness the spiritual journey of decolonization for four artists with roots in Surinam, India and the Netherlands. They negotiate with the history of forced labour migration, the erasure of cultures they belong to, cultures they have come to belong to, and the oppressive systems which continue to exist today. All of them have been touched by the Dutch and British colonial projects, but are shaped differently through their personal experiences in life through religion, gender, and sexuality, which becomes visible through their authentic visions on decolonization and healing

Fazle Shairmahomed is a performance artist, dancer, intersectional activist, and community builder. He creates decolonizing rituals, through which he transforms the relationship with the spectator, and challenges understandings of inter-sensoriality. His experienced reality creates an urgency that shapes his artistic choices leading to themes such as death, rebirth, ancestry, belonging, colonial histories, and healing. As a community builder he is one of the members of CLOUD danslab, an artist-run dance studio which supports research and practice of dance, movement, and performance art in the Hague; Masala Movement, an international intercultural platform for creativity; and he is involved in several Queer communities. He graduated in anthropology and Middle Eastern Studies/Arabic. www.fazleshairmahomed.com

Rolando Vázquez is a teacher and decolonial thinker. He is regularly invited to deliver keynotes on decoloniality at academic and cultural institutions. Vázquez is currently Associate Professor of Sociology at University College Roosevelt and Cluster Chair at the University College Utrecht. Since 2010, he co-directs with Walter Mignolo the annual Maria Lugones Decolonial Summer School, now hosted by the Van Abbemuseum. In 2016, under the direction of Gloria Wekker, he co-authored the report “Let’s do Diversity” of the University of Amsterdam Diversity Commission. Vázquez’s work places the question of the possibility of an ethical life at the core of decolonial thought and advocates for the decolonial transformation of cultural and educational institutions. His most recent publication is Vistas of Modernity: Decolonial aesthesis and the End of the Contemporary (Mondriaan Fund 2020)

We are seeing the world being potentially transformed by the massive popular resistance to racism and anti-black violence that has been prompted by recent displays of racist brutality. The master’s courses of the Piet Zwart Institute stand in support of movements for racial justice around the world and we hold ourselves accountable to address the urgent demands being issued through protests and community-led actions. We recognize that to stand in solidarity with this movement is to commit to do the work of reflecting its aims of justice and equity within our educational and creative community. We must continue to support and empower diverse perspectives. We must deepen our commitment to making our resources more accessible to a local and an international student body. We must platform voices of resistance and amplify their work through our curricula and programming. And we will continue to engage in active and persistent dialogue and self-critique. We remain committed to manifesting the transformative change we hope to see in the world as educators, artists, and designers. Black Lives Matter.

Very proud to announce that our current second year student Adam Patterson will have a solo exhibition at TENT. Rotterdam!

Adam Patterson uses masquerade, textiles, performance, video and poetry to tell new stories or to repeat old stories and provide them with new meaning. The new video installation “A Ship of Fools” is a vehicle for several voices, who try to find words for their experiences in the difficult times in which we live.

The exact opening date is yet to be announced.

Can we find ways to feel each other’s pain, mourn each other’s loss, and relate to what is happening right now? And how do we want to continue together after we have shared our experience of the crisis?

Patterson translated this desire for empathy, connection and solidarity into a way of working in which cooperation is central. “A Ship of Fools” is a collaboration with Clementine Edwards, Nicole Jordan, Ark Ramsay and M. Maria Walhout. A leading role in the new work is music and kangas – printed canvases that you give as a personal gift to someone during joyous or sad events.

Adam Patterson (Bridgetown, 1994) works as a visual artist and writer, and lives alternately in Barbados, London and Rotterdam. Patterson was a participant in the Hamburger Community of Art in Rotterdam (2019); exhibited at Live Art Development Agency (London), Barbados Museum & Historical Society (Bridgetown), Little Red Riding Hood (Rotterdam), Ateliers ’89 (Oranjestad), Alice Yard (Port of Spain); and published in ARC Magazine, Sugarcane Magazine, PREE, Mister Motley and Metropolis M.
