BREWED in Brussels: MFA theory event

On april 30th, MFA students and guests gathered in Brussels for the MFA theory event, hosted by BREW.

The 2nd year students of the Master Fine Art at AKV | St. Joost presented the outcomes of the theoretical research of their studies. This occasion was used to experimentally test the different forms ‘theory’ can take in their work. How is theory related to art-production, how can this relationship be made productive?

Participants:
Katrein Breukers (NL), Tyas Leeuwerink (NL), Maarten Spons (NL), Danni van Amstel (NL), Mohadeseh Rahimitabar (IR), Katherina Heil (D), Giulia Cenci (IT), Maud Oonk (NL).

Curator: Bas van den Hurk

A group of young artists, currently studying at the Master Fine Arts AKV / St. Joost, developed a concept which connects to the project ‘Tijd, Subject en Ruimte’ (Time, Subject and Space) of the Belgian artist Stijn van Dorpe, which was shown at Expo Plu, a dialogue with the text of Martijn in ‘t Veld is entered. This text is more than a beginning, middle and an end, rather, it is organic and rhizomatic along the lines of Mille Plateaux of Deleuze and Guattari. An organism, which grows, proliferates, of which the beginning and the end could be anywhere.

It is a text with different voices and rhythms, to which each artist individually sought rapprochement, where the text influences the exhibition and vice versa. The green screen from the text becomes a plane in which a moment of potential is present. It offers an open moment, it ‘performs’ an invitation.

The exhibition will be curated by Bas van den Hurk, tutor at the Master AKV/St. Joost. There will be a small publication alongside the exhibition.

‘BUILDING UP AN EXHIBITION’

In conversation with Marnix van Boetzelaer

Is the exhibition an autonomous instrument for showing and sharing art? Or is it rather a dependent and “prepaid” device? Or does it offer a subjective and personal reading of the artwork?

A group of artists, currently following the master Fine Art at AKV St. Joost, are getting together with curator Marnix van Boetzelaer in De Slang, Amsterdam. During this meeting they will create a dialogue about the function of the exhibition and discuss questions they share in common.

Reflecting on these questions, they are trying to gather a deeper understanding of the power of displaying work and the purpose of an exhibition. For this evening, the intention is to start from questions, doubts and possibilities to think, instead of bringing about a statement. Nevertheless, they might find some answers in the process.

During the opening event, the exhibition will be built up in combination with discussions between students and curator Marnix van Boetzelaer. Together they will make decisions, selections and investigate possible ways of presenting their work, striving towards a final result, which will be presented during the weekend.
