My other tongue

MY OTHER TONGUE shows the results of a 10 day exploration in Art, Language and Psychiatry.

Artist Residency Het Vijfde Seizoen, together with artists Dirk van Lieshout and Marieke Zwart, invited twelve art academy students and young artists, for the second edition of their Summerschool, to explore the field of Psychiatry and Art; with a specific focus on Language. After 10 intensive days of lectures, discussions, meetings and experiments we would like to present our new works inspired by the program.
