Open call for Online Exhibition Body and Power(lessness)

news 29 September 2021
dossier: Online Exhibition: Body and Power(lessness)
Our theme of this study year is The body and Power(lessness), on how we physically experience autonomy, power(lessness), (in)justice, care and collectivity. We invite all ArtEZ students to join us in our research and contribute with their own work for an online exhibition.

After a year and a half of lockdowns, disembodied heads on our screens and avoidance of physical contact, the body is slowly returning to the world, to our consciousness and to the work of many makers.

You might have work – or work in progress - that is in some way connected to the body. We invite you to share it with us in a short video, text, podcast or any other (digitally shareable) form. Check out the call below. Each month, we will be publishing a selection in our online exhibition Body and Power(lessness)

To start with, we have invited Floris Grondman and Stephanie Luka, students at the Master of Arts in Education in Zwolle, to share their work. They are currently working on a special research project on neurodiversity. More on their project can be found here.

Perhaps you have a completely different perspective or you feel like finding one. The opening text on the theme will inspire you. Other texts on the topic will follow in the coming months, in cooperation with Mister Motley. We look forward to hearing your ideas and to seeing some of your work realised!
