End of Year Lecture-Presentations


Among the DAI’s key-features are the annual End of Year Lecture-Presentations by students, an open and experimental, art educational format, coined by the DAI in 2003. The Lecture-Presentations are a four day long marathon, a surprising hybrid of research, reflection, presentation and performance in front of an audience of peers, public and invited reviewers of international standing. This year we are very happy to welcome the artists Anjalika Sagar from the Otolith Group ( present on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday) and Annette Krauss ( present on Thursday). Please find their bio’s below. They will team up with our associate professor Grant Watson. After each presentation the guests will give a spoken review on the form and the content of the presentation and will discus their evaluations amongst each other and with the audience. The sessions are moderated by Gabriëlle Schleijpen, Head of the DAI /MFA ArtEZ.

In preparation of this event the students have been working with dramaturge Jan-Philipp Possmann and theatre director/ performer/filmmaker David Weber-Krebs during a seminar that took place during the DAI-weeks in March, April and May under the title Performing Presentation/ Presenting Performance.
Jan-Philipp and David will be present during several days of the presentations.

Grant Watson is Senior Curator and Research Associate at the Institute of International Visual Arts in London (Iniva) and one of the associate professors at ArtEZ, the Netherlands. Watson studied Curating and Visual Cultures at Goldsmiths College London where he is currently a PhD candidate.

The Otolith Group is an award winning artist led collective and organisation founded by Anjalika Sagar and Kodwo Eshun in 2002 that integrates film and video making, artists writing, workshops, exhibition curation, publication and
developing public platforms for the close readings of the image in contemporary society. The Group’s work is formally engaged with research led projects exploring the legacies and potentialities of artists led proposals around the document and the essay film, the archive, the sonic, speculative futures and science-fictions.

Annette Krauss works as an artist. In her conceptual-based work she addresses the intersection of art, politics and everyday life, trying to explore the possibility of participatory practices, performativity and investigations into educational structures. She is particularly interested in questions of how norms and values control our perceptions and practices in everyday life, and how this contributes towards the development of human relations within specific social contexts.
