December 2-3 ~ Join the amazing Jules Petru Fricker (DAI, 2020) and others for Infinity Rug, ALL-NIGHT SONIC SEANCE ~ hosted by SAVVY ~ Infinity Rug offers a moment where sound, collective learning and intimate care come together to forge a space of togetherness. You are invited to bring your own rug to contribute to a rug-constellation. Lay down and get cosy together, drift off together. Bringing the domestic to the public realm, to tentatively explore new ways of being-together and offer a space for reflection, rejuvenation and introspection.
Friday December 1, 2023 ~ the genocide underway in Palestine is unbearable, torturous, a hellscape. We are incandescent with rage and pain. STAND UP TO GENOCIDE ~ TOGETHER FOR PALESTINE ! For the sake of humanity, we need CEASEFIRE NOW. Enduring peace is only achievable by a political agreement which ends OCCUPATION and APARTHEID. Break the endless cycles of violence. Violence to which Europe has been shamefully complicit in so many ways and for so long. DAI offers an evolving feed, or call it a social media frenzy- filter. Dear members of the extended DAI community are sharing links with us ~ and your suggestions are most welcome as well, send them to: WORLD@dutchartinstitute.eu
DAI warmly congratulates Sepideh Behrouzian (DAI, 2020) with her 2023-2024 residency at the Jan van Eyck Academie ( Post–Academy for Art, Design and Reflection) in Maastricht. In her current research, Behrouzian is focusing on the desiccated riverbed of Zayendeh Rud in Esfahan, where the spectres of geology and biology converge within the ever-shifting colonial frontier: from oil-mining as a colonial practice, spanning through the promise of development, now transformed into a new form of extractive colonial practices, all the way to a flattened representation of dystopian climate devastation that obscures its asymmetrical effects.
