Beautiful Soup – Five Inclusion Tactics for Seven Curators

Opening: 3 maart om 14:00
de Appel, Schipluidenlaan 12, Amsterdam

De Appel is trots Beautiful Soup te hosten. Dit is een presentatie van zeven curatoriële praktijken. Het is gebaseerd op het thema van inclusie-tactieken voor curatoren, en adresseert vijf sleutelbegrippen: empowerment, ondersteuning, coöperaties, openheid en eerlijkheid. De deelnemende curatoren zijn: Jeanette Bisschops, CHANG Eunha, Sofía Dourron, Manique Hendricks, MOK Honggyun, Ong Jo-Lene, en YUN Minhwa. Het project wordt ondersteund vanuit het Nederlands-Koreaanse International Arts Joint Fund, ter viering van 60 jaar diplomatieke betrekkingen tussen beide landen.
