‘Pickle Bar presents' at West Den Haag is the first large-scale presentation of Slavs and Tatars' work in The Netherlands. The artist collective will bring a new commission alongside existing works addressing the politics, materiality, and volatility of language. Through Slavs and Tatars' Pickle Bar initiative, works from fifteen artists in their network will be paired with a performative program by 5 international artists ~ at DAI we are thrilled to recognise artists-alumni Afrang Nordlöf Malekian (DAI, 2022), Olga Micińska (DAI, 2018), as well as Jonas Palekas (our esteemed chef de cuisine in Nida at more than one occassion) among the contributors. "Embracing change and decay rather than avoiding them, the process of fermentation always seeks to create new living environments. In the Pickle Bar, the artists and public engage in a dialogue through anything concerning the tongue, from ingestion to speech." ~ Till: 17.03.2024
