March & April 2017: Pieter Paul Pothoven 

pothoven_castrum_peregrini_2017

The work of Pieter Paul Pothoven (1981, NL) comprises sculpture, installation, and includes different forms of writing as well. In his projects, he searches for alternative ways of engaging with the past through study of historical sites, artifacts and resources, in order to mediate new relationships with history often based on their potential use-value in the present. During a 2-month residency at Castrum Peregrini, he will continue to study socialist resistance before, during and after the Second World War in Amsterdam. Central to his project is a comparative study of three groups that organized their actions in radically different times but share similar motives.

pothoven_castrum_peregrini_2017Pieter Paul Pothoven received his BFA at the Gerrit Rietveld Academie in Amsterdam (NL) and his MFA at Parsons The New School of Design, New York. He was a resident at Fine Arts Work Center, Provincetown (US), Van Eyck Academie, Maastricht (NL) and Instituto Sacatar, Salvador (BR). His work has been shown in various solo and group exhibitions. Recent exhibitions include: ‘You talkin’ to me?’, Barbara Seiler, Zürich (CH); ‘Sunsets never looked as stunning as through the haze of factory sooth’, Van Eyck Acadamie, Maastricht (NL); ‘Territorial Drift’, Garage, Rotterdam (NL); ‘Listen to the Stones, think like a mountain’, Tatjana Pieters, Ghent (BE); ‘Lapis Lazuli from Serr-i-Sang’, PuntWG, Amsterdam (NL); ‘11:59, on a date of no particular significance’, Hudson D. Walker gallery, Provincetown (US); ‘The intelligence of Things’, The Kitchen, New York (US). He initiated and co-curated ‘Weight of Colour’, a symposium about the materiality of color, Amsterdam (NL) and the group exhibition ‘I scarcely have the right to use this ghostly verb’, New York, (US). His texts have been published in amongst others: Anamesa Journal, Simulacrum, Volume, De Gids and Beyroutes, an Alternative Guide to Beirut. Currently he lives and works in Amsterdam. pieterpaulpothoven.com

 

October & November 2017: Aimée Zito Lema

Rond de Jambe, video still, 2015

Expanding an insignificant event, isolating a sudden movement, choosing an affective gesture and zeroing in on it until we lose ourselves in the sounds it emits, the grain of the photo or the word that names it, furnishes us with a chance to reinterpret the events as they are presented to us, and of understanding history from new perspectives.

Aimée Zito Lema grounds her practice in this premise. Based on a process of selection and appropriation, Zito Lema zooms in on the detail of gestures, often by using archive images taken of working class demonstrations or counter-cultural movements. This motif, once enlarged almost to the point of abstraction, brings to mind the mechanism that enables cooperation and development within a community, or a movement, or an affective structure than bonds a group or a family. It is revealed to us in her work, just as a tiny detail can give rise to a community spirit and all that this brings with it. Her artistic practice structures the narrative around the process, triggering a dynamic that, taken together, lends meaning to the work. The idea leads to an expression, act or performance. This work in turn gives rise to the object that, inasmuch as a metaphor, returns us to the expression from which it came, only to be recycled and give birth to new possibilities.*

For her residency at Castrum Peregrini Zito Lema will focus on the role of friendship within adverse social-political circumstances.  She will research different notions of friendship in political contexts, taking as starting point the history of the house of Gisele van Waterschoot. Looking at past and present, searching for traces of these notions of friendship, understood as solidarity and support structure.

Lychnari – Gisèle (1988)

LYCHNARI – GISÈLE

verkenningen in het Griekenland van nu

publiceerde in 1988 in het kunstkatern het artikel ‘GISÈLE’ geschreven door archeoloog en Griekenland expert Stella Lubsen.

Lychnari is sinds 1987 een Nederlandstalig tijdschrift over het hedendaagse Griekenland, met als ondertitel: “Verkenningen in het Griekenland van nu”. Het verschijnt vier keer per jaar. Het Griekse woord lychnari betekent olielampje: het tijdschrift wil — voor een breed publiek, maar met een zekere diepgang — licht werpen op de moderne Griekse wereld: van Griekenland, van Cyprus en van de Grieken waar ook ter wereld.

In 1988 blikt Gisèle (1912 – 2013) in gesprek met Stella Lubsen terug op de zomers die zij vanaf de jaren zestig op het Griekse eiland Paros doorbracht, een periode die weer een heel nieuwe dimensie aan haar brede oeuvre toevoegde. Haar atelier in haar kloostertje Aghios Ioannis op basis waarvan Gisèle haar laatste grote atelier in Amsterdam inrichtte.

 

De 2e jaargang van dit academische tijdschrift verscheen bijna 30 jaar geleden, toen begon het editorial met de onderstaande inleidende kop en tekst. Die regel sluit nog altijd nauw aan bij de huidige situatie, zou je kunnen zeggen.

Spannende Tijden Het nieuwe jaar is in Griekenland begonnen met allerlei belangrijke ontwikkelingen, die een stempel kunnen gaan drukken op de binnenlandse verhoudingen en de buitenlandse politiek van het land.

 

European Academy of Participation

European Academy of Participation

Creative producers and the communities of tomorrow
A Strategic Partnership supported by the ERASMUS+ programme of the European Commission. September 2015 – August 2018

EAP_Logoformats_4cThe European Academy of Participation (EAP) brings together 10 partners from all over Europe, including higher education institutions and arts and culture organisations. The project aims to make a contribution to a more inclusive Europe, in which people live together in mutual respect of their differences. The EAP partners consider participatory practice in art and culture as a central tool to involve communities in a positive process of constructing a shared cultural space.

Participation is hot!
A key priority for funders, fostering social cohesion and exposing ethical questions around responsibility and authorship, participatory practice can provide compelling means to communicate through art and culture. It also embraces the dissolving of boundaries between academic and artistic disciplines and those between the policymaker, the artist, the curator and the audience. This increasing flexibility brings about a new practice profile: the creative producer.

EAP wants to develop:
* A shared understanding of a graduate profile for practitioners working in participatory settings, based on the dialogue between higher education, lifelong learning and the creative field.
* A benchmark document that adopts the Tuning Educational Structures in Europe methodology that will be validated and published for the use of educators and practitioners.
This includes a qualifications framework and acknowledges the already existing variety of participatory approaches in the humanities and the arts.
* An intensive 2 month, low-residency module/unit jointly offered by universities and cultural organisations. This post graduate lifelong learning education module/unit targets postgraduate students – from the arts, humanities and social sciences – as well as practitioners including artists, trainers, teachers, curators and others from third sector cultural organizations.
The ambition of EAP is to tap into the existing potential of higher education and the unique and hard won endeavours of creative projects and organizations scattered across Europe that are engaging the public as active agents in their work. Through interaction both sectors impact on the diversifying societies of Europe, valuing participatory practice in the arts.

EAP will organise 3 public conferences
1) 2016, 27-28 October, Dublin, Ireland: Towards a European Benchmark.
2) 2017, May, Amsterdam, The Netherlands: Bringing education and practice together.
3) 2018, May, Lyon, France: New Communities, New Jobs, New Policies.

Living in Diversity

A lecture by Kenan Malik

 

Over the past century, mass immigration has transformed European societies. Over the past year the migration crisis has threatened to tear the European Union apart. Both the mass migration of the past century and the migration crisis of today raise profound questions about what it means to be European and about what constitutes European values. They raise also profound questions about the relationship between difference and commonalities in a modern, liberal society. How is it possible, if at all, to make societies more inclusive, and accept different conceptions of the good, while also establishing a strong common moral framework? In this talk Kenan Malik asks what it means, both for social policy and individual action, to live in diversity.

The lecture will be followed by a panel discussion with representatives of Castrum Peregrini’s board of recommendation Avraham (Avrum) Burg, author and former Speaker of the Israeli Knesset and Marjan Schwegman, historian and former director NIOD, Institute for War, Holocaust and Genocide Studies.

The evening is organised on the occasion of the launch of the Gisèle House, where past and present courageous people of civil engagement in art and culture will be commemorated and that wants to contribute to a more inclusive society.

Location: Spui 25 , Amsterdam

entrance: € 8,50
