Binna Choi, co-artistic director of the seventh edition of the Singapore Biennale and co-tutor of our COOP study group "Long Time No See: Forming a new art economy of the commons," invites you to join the biennale named Natasha. The act of naming serves as a prompt to artists, collaborators, and audiences to re-discover ways of seeing and relating to the world. Going to Natasha is to embrace the possibility of intimacy and spontaneity afforded by such recognition, as well as to reflect on the transformative potential within life and its relations — from self to others, from human to non-human, from living to non-living and vice versa, and beyond. The artists and collaborators thus become ‘fellow travellers’ in the journey of Natasha, expressed through artistic imagination and research. Featuring over 50 artists and collaborators embarking on a collective journey with Natasha. Till 19 March 2023. Natasha features several DAI alumni: Areumnari Ee (DAI, 2018), Aarti Sunder (DAI, 2015), Assem Hendawi (DAI, 2020) and Wayne WJ. Lim (DAI, 2017). Learn more about all of them.

Our partner PAF ( the amazing, truly self organised and self funded, radically open art residency, one of the very few in Europe) invites you to volunteer for the fun, the sweat, the glory, and the bonding that will be : PAF Repair Week 4 from May 7th to 14th, 2023! For anyone who hasn’t yet heard of Repair Week, it’s the somewhat-annual event when a team of 30-35 volunteers jumps into the many renovation and remodeling projects of PAF. Repair Week welcomes people of all levels of experience; the sharing of skills and “learn by doing” creates a nice environment for those who are just beginning. The physical labor of renovation can be a very satisfying way of engaging with PAF and gaining a more intimate knowledge of the building and its needs; it’s sure to change your relationship with the place during future stays. Also, remember that working in the kitchen to feed the team is an equally valuable contribution! In exchange for your efforts, PAF will cover the cost of your stay (nights of 7th-13th) and provide food for 3 collectively cooked meals per day (plus proletariat aperitif of beer and potato chips).
