Dear friends and relations of the DAI,
The DAI community is ready to embark on another vibrant DAI-week, this dense weaving of seminars, (publishing) classes, lectures, workshops, performances, presentations, face to face conversations and communal meals taking place in Arnhem on a monthly base. DAI-week gatherings work as an experimental learning environment, think tank, networking platform, theory camp and temporary art commune. Read the full day-to-day program for April 2014 in our BULLETIN no 7.
If you happen to be around in the Netherlands we warmly welcome you to join us for this months (semi-)public events:
Tuesday April 8 ~ At 7:30pm we will screen 'A Border Musical' followed by a Q & A with Dmitry Vilenski, artist, writer and founding member of Chto Delat, back at DAI, this time guest lecturing upon invitation by Renée Ridgway in the context of her DAI-project Welcome To Econotopia - Commons of the Contemporary.
