PROGRAM BY NIEUW DAKOTA
Can art as research help us understand the world in a different way? And what kind of knowledge does it produce?
In the exhibition Processing Space-Times eight artist-researchers from the Creator Doctus Project present their work. Creator Doctus (CrD) is the title of a newly developed degree in the field of Higher Arts Education Institutions, that has been initiated by the Gerrit Rietveld Academie in close collaboration with partners.
Artistic research is a process, but it can also be understood as a processor: a powerful instrument to bring different spaces, times and systems into dialogue with each other. The artist-researchers in this exhibition are all engaged in redefining ‘knowledge’ in the field of research. For these artists, research proves to be a form of navigation: creating pathways through a myriad of questions and sources of information. The works that are part of this exhibition reveal the artists’ personal journeys into connecting these diverging fields of knowledge and understanding.
Friday October 29th is the opening of the exhibition. Join the opening at Nieuw Dakota from 17:30 – 20:00 hrs. A valid COVID QR code and ID card will be checked at the entrance.
Nieuw Dakota is free to visit, but donations at the door are greatly appreciated.
