We warmly felicitate Laura Dubourjal ( DAI, 2022) who received a starters voucher of € 2,500 from the ArtEZ Business Centre. Dubourjal (1994) is a French visual artist and fashion designer. Having grown up in a family of actors, she often uses linguistics of the theatre world to question the power of characters and the performativity of our every day interactions. She explores different thematics of identity and performance in her multidisciplinary work, using media that include performance, video works, interactive audio-visual installations, fashion design, textile and written text.
An amazing chance to see Leon Filter’s (DAI, 2018 graduate and longstanding DAI tutor Curating Positions) ) newly published book MUMMYTHEDADDY at an upcoming presentation in the Laboratory for Art and Research, Cologne. The evening will be held with our dearest alum Valentina Curandi (DAI, 2017). MUMMYTHEDADDY is a collection of personal anecdotes and written images that explore paternal relationships, inherited memories and experiences with familiar roles. Through stories of military service, dementia, and monsters, the author reflects on the complexities of family histories. By examining how we remember and forget, Leon's book emphasises the contributions of narratives in shaping our understanding of how intergenerational dynamics form, and proposes to reshape roles within dependency relationships. The performative reading will take place on Nov 17, 2023.
Performa Biennial 2023 presents Rana Hamadeh (DAI, 2009) ~ Can You Make a Pet of Him Like a Bird or Put Him on a Leash For Your Girls? ~ Rana’s cacophonous sonic work takes the Shiite ceremony of Ashoura –– encompassing its current political, military, and legal expressions within the Lebanese/Syrian context, as its field for commentary and research –– an annual ritual during which mourners take the streets to ‘re-witness’ the slaying of al-imam al-Hussein (626–680 AD), the grandson of the Prophet Mohammad PBUH and an allegorical reference to the ultimate figure of the oppressed. November 15, 2023 at Performa Hub in New York.
