Art As Resistance, #1

Seminar
Art as Resistance, #1

Saturday 4 February, 11 – 17 hrs

Framer Framed, Humanity in Action and Castrum Peregrini are joining forces for a three part symposium series Art as Resistance. Our first edition starts with a key note lecture by artist & urbanist Dr. Adeola Enigbokan. Her manifesto:

ART & AFFINITY

In the wake of recent world events, art should help us to modify the groups or classes into which we organize ourselves. Art could also help us transform our thinking around where, and to whom, we belong. Art should create experiences that challenge us, forcing us to ask:

who are our “natural” companions?
who is our “true” family?
where do our obligations lie?
what are the stories we insist on telling ourselves about our “family,” our “nation,” and how can we leave these stories behind and tell new stories?

Art should constantly form and re-form us into associations along affinities we could not have imagined on our own.

After the keynote speech by Adeola Enigbokan after the lunch three interactive parallel workshops given by Maria Guggenbichler, Charl Landvreugd and Patricia Kaersenhout.

Seminar on Critical Pedagogies

Critical Pedagogies

Friday 20 January 2017

Friday 10 March 2017

From January through March 2017, Castrum Peregrini will host the Master Education in Arts students from the Piet Zwart Institute. The group will be meeting regularly in both Rotterdam and Amsterdam for a seminar on critical pedagogies.

Co-taught by Prof. Frans-Willem Korsten (The University of Leiden) and artist, Renee Turner, the seminar looks at critical pedagogies in the plural, meaning a range of educational theories with one common denominator, the term ‘critical’, which refers to the ability to analyze the social, cultural, pedagogical and institutional processes that are inherent to every form of education.

The seminar will also include a semi-public event on March 10th with guest speakers: Peter Kraftl (Chair in Human Geography at the University of Leicester), Esther Peeren (Associate Professor of Globalisation Studies at the Media Studies Department at the University of Amsterdam) and Jack Halberstam (Professor of American Studies and Ethnicity, Gender Studies and Comparative Literature at the University of Southern California).

Speakers are dirt/punk/trash experts Gluklya (Factory of Found Clothes, St. Petersburg / A’dam), Caleb Kelly (University of New South Wales), Natalia Samutina (Higher School of Economics, Moscow), Yngvar Steinholt (Tromso University). punk-dirt-trash-worksop-dec-2016
