DAI-BULLETIN nr.9 ~ Public lectures by Benjamin Noys and Brian Massumi

04.06.15 | tag: Arnhem

Dear colleagues and friends,

Yesterday evening we began the 9th DAI- week of this academic year, with a most generous lecture by Benjamin Noys, followed by a lively discussion which continued into the late hours.

Should you be around in the Netherlands, more particularly in Arnhem, it would be great if you could join us coming Thursday June 18 at 20:00 for a public talk by Brian Massumi organised in the context of a DAI-course curated and tutored by Open!. The event will take place at the Showroom, Kleine Oord 177, in Arnhem at less then one minute walking distance from the DAI. Free entrance, but reservation is strongly recommended: please contact Jacq van der Spek

We like to inform you that apart from Brian Massumi and Benjamin Noys furthermore Nick Aikens, Alena Alexandrova, Bassam El Baroni, Yael Davids, Kodwo Eshun, Jon Mikel Euba, Fernando García-Dory, Chiara Fumai, Susan Gibb, Florian Göttke, Rana Hamadeh, Doreen Mende, Snejanka Mihaylova, Ruth Noack, Sanne Oorthuizen, Rebecca Sakoun, Stefanie Seibold, Jorinde Seijdel, Marina Vishmidt, Grant Watson, Vivian Ziherl and Tirdad Zolghadr will be joining us for this DAI-week which will unfurl from June 15 till 19. 

Together with these esteemed core- and guest tutors the DAI-students are again embarking on a trajectory that is best to be characterized as an energetic weaving of seminars, (publishing) classes, lectures, workshops, performances, presentations, conversations and communal meals taking place in Arnhem on a monthly base. DAI-week gatherings work as an experimental learning environment, think tank, networking platform, theory camp and temporary, 'fleeting' art commune.

A new and distinctive attribute to our program will be inaugurated by our Associate PHD Research Collective. On Tuesday June 16 the first edition of our APRC Kitchen session Slow Cooking will invite DAI alumni Jimini Hignett, Padraig Robinson, Anna Hoetjes, Rosie Heinrich, Kristiina Koskentola and associate researchers David Maroto and Florian Göttke to present aspects of their current research to eminent respondents Benjamin Noys and Ruth Noack.

Please find the complete program for June 2015 in  DAI-bulletin 9.


I look forward to welcoming you in our midst.
