utrecht'ten son durum

're-projecting (Utrecht)'

Ricardo Basbaum

Events 17 – 26 April

Exhibition opening 26 April, 15.00 at Casco

A drawing of an abstract shape was applied to the map of Utrecht determining nine locations for collaborative projects. In each location events will be conducted by invited artists, artists' groups, people from the local communities, thinkers, philosophers, curators, writers, etc, which take a variety of formats and durations, in many cases responding to the specificities of the location. Events will be realized almost every day, over ten days in April. These include Iratxe Jaio and Klaas van Gorkum's 'Overvecht Zombiewalk', Steve Rushton's radio play, 'The Germ', a conversation with Simon Sheikh and Renger de Bruin about the public sphere in a private home, Mieke Van de Voort's game 'generale staten' about the spreading of a virus, and Ricardo Basbaum's 'Me & You, choreographies, games and exercises.' The events are linked through conceptual threads that Ricardo Basbaum has been using in his work over the last few years, such as notions of transformation, subliminal contact, the organic line, contact zones, microperception, repetition and the politics of the subject. All events are open to the public. A number of the events are open for participation, please see the schedule below for details.
