Opening We know what it is for, we who have used it with artist talk

The event Opening We know what it is for, we who have used it with artist talk will take place on 9 September 2018, 16:00 – 19:00.

We will kick-off the new art-season with the exhibition We know what it is for, we who have used it by the Palestinian artists Basel Abbas and Ruanne Abou-Rahme.

Join us for this festive opening! The exhibition will open with drinks and at 5 pm the artists will give a talk, hosted by curator Nathanja van Dijk and Karima Boudou, guest-curator public program.

For their project Abbas and Abou-Rahme returned to destroyed Palestinian villages. Following the faint traces of the past, the artists developed a reversed museology as a strategy to breath new live into these places. In an immersive installation, including video, sound-pieces, sculpture and a living archive, the artists present a counter-mythology, as an alternative to the dominant, often colonial narratives with which we describe our present.
