    Philadelphia Assembled joins art and civic engagement. Shaped by hundreds of collaborators, it tells a story of radical community building and active resistance. Challenging, inspiring, and as big as the city, Philadelphia Assembled asks: how can we collectively shape our futures?

    'This is not about gentrification’

    A cooperative bakery in the shadow of Liverpool FC’s stadium is aiming to transform a derelict terrace into affordable homes for the local community. As Liverpool FC’s Anfield stadium gleams in the April sunshine, the abandoned, steel-shuttered houses cowering in its shadow serve as a poignant reminder of the impact developments can have on their host communities.

    Book launch What's the Use?

    What's the Use? Constellations of Art, History, and Knowledge (Valiz, Van Abbemuseum, L'Internationale, 2016), is a collection of essays on the 'uses' of art. The starting point of the Reader is that art is an integral part of social, economic, and political processes, and that it is best understood in dialogue with these contexts, rather than as a 'thing in itself'. In their contributions, artists and writers explore the exchange between art, use, knowledge and history; now and in the past.

    Article in DAMn #58


    Jeanne van Heeswijk sees herself as a mediator, an intermediary between a situation, a space, a neighbourhood, and the people connected therewith. Encountering and communicating are key concepts in her practice. She only acts once the nuances of the context have been thoroughly determined.

  • Mar 1, 2019 for Saturday’s gathering @bakbasis with New Women Connectors #repost #BAKutrecht How do you like our new pillows? We are busy preparing a space for a gathering of the New Women Connectors, which takes place this Saturday at BAK. The New Women Connectors gather refugee and migrant women from all backgrounds to learn about and share challenges that women newcomers experience, and how to veer these challenges toward solutions for policy and community forums to act upon effectively. It provides the opportunity to connect and share stories, experiences, and knowledge, in order to explore the ways of women empowerment. This gathering is part of a new series of collaborations between BAK, basis voor actuele kunst and New Women Connectors. The collaboration is called BAK, basis voor New Women Connectors, and takes place in the framework of a forthcoming project initiated by BAK and artist and BAK 2018/2019 Fellow Jeanne van Heeswijk in September-December 2019.
