This Saturday Jack Segbars will speak with Sjoerd Westbroek about the presentation ‘Politics of estrangement-naught’ at A Tale of a Tub. Departing from Segbars’ ongoing investigation into the structure of contemporary art production, the artist will discuss the relationship between curator and artists. The role of theory in the production of the ‘artistic object’ will also be taken into account.
Sjoerd Westbroek (1979) lives and works in Rotterdam. He is co-founder of ADA (Area for Debate and Art) in Rotterdam. He graduated in 2008 with a Master’s Degree from the Piet Zwart Institute in Rotterdam and in 2013 was a resident at the Jan van Eyck Academie in Maastricht. Recent projects include The Building a Pedantry of Lines at the Jan van Eyck Academie and Pick up this book, an installation and publication for the exhibition If Mind Were All There Was, Kunstverein Göttingen.
