DAI-bulletin nr 7 ~ Roaming Assembly#4 FAILURE TO TRANSMIT. March 20, 2016

" ........it looks like all that is needed are smart curators who will recognise the intricacies of art world power relations, while shifting art works like goods from one continent to another and flying in performing subjects at a moment's notice."

"It is time to start asking what might resist this transnational trade of objects, people and networks?"


Dear colleagues and friends,


On behalf of Ruth Noack and her guests I like to remind you of Roaming Assembly#4 FAILURE TO TRANSMIT a public symposium & play which will take place at Huis Oostpool in Arnhem, coming Sunday March 20. Curated and presented by Ruth Noack, FAILURE TO TRANSMIT includes contributions by Mary Ellen Carroll, Anna Daučíková, Antke Engel, May Adadol Ingawanij, Marcelo Rezende and others. Introduction, program details and all practicalities are to be found here:


The Roaming Assembly sessions function as it were as the DAI-week's 'centerfold'. This month's guest contributors Mary Ellen Carroll, Anna Daučíková, Antke Engel, Marcelo Rezende and May Adadol Ingawanij will also teach and respond to student-presentations, next to our returning tutors and their guests Nick Aikens, Kayla AndersonBassam El Baroni, Yael Davids, Jon Mikel Euba, Fernando García-Dory, Susan Gibb, Tina Gverović, Elske Hageraats, Ruth Noack, Christian NyampetaSanne Oorthuizen, Rachel O'Reilly, Sarah Pierce, ruangrupa, Jorinde Seijdel, Tirdad Zolghadr and Marina Vishmidt.        

We are furthermore thrilled to welcome our cherished alumni Padraig Robinson, Fotini Gouseti and Patricia Sousa who will present new projects to our current master student body, join Lauren Alexander, Rosie Heinrich, and associate researchers Florian Göttke and David Maroto for a session of our Associate PHD Research Collective and spend their Sunday with us at the theatre for FAILURE TO TRANSMIT.

Together with all of the aforementioned tutors and guests, DAI-students will embark on another week-long trajectory which is best described as a vigorous weaving of seminars, publishing classes, lectures, workshops, performances, presentations, face to face conversations and communal meals taking place in Arnhem (or elsewhere if we are roaming) on a monthly base. DAI-week gatherings work as an experimental learning environment, think tank, networking platform, theory camp and temporary art commune.

Please find the details on this month's itinerary in DAI-BULLETIN NR. 7.


Greetings from the part of the entire DAI team

We hope to be able to welcome you in our midst soon: in Arnhem or elsewhere in the world, 

Gabriëlle Schleijpen
