On April 22 2010, participating artists and advisors from the MFA programme at AKV | St. Joost set off for Chicago to take part in Version 10 Chicago – Infrastructures and Territories, narrowly avoiding the chaos caused by the Europe wide grounding of flights in and out of the continent due to invisible clouds of ash eminating from Iceland’s Eyjafjallajokul volcano.
For two weeks we were involved in a variety of activities. The time spent in Chicago was a rewarding experience for everyone involved and i personally had great time (Thomas)! A very special thanks to Ed, Rachael and Maria Marszewski , Emily Clayton, the amazing team and all the volunteers at Version, SAIC, AKV St. Joost, Ad van Rosmalen, Bas van den Hurk for conceiving the trip and to Bas van den Hurk, George Korsmit, Saskia Janssen, Marjolijn Dijkmen and Erik Hagoort for all their help and advice.
