De deelnemers van het de Appel Curatorial programma 2012-2013 nodigen op 24 november Arnisa Zeqo uit voor een gesprek over letterlijk en figuurlijk wonen tijdens de Kunstvlaai.

The participants of the De Appel Curatorial Programme 2012-2013 invite Arnisa Zeqo, cofounder of Rongwrong space for art and theory, for a conversation on literal and figurative dwelling. Taking the history of the new De Appel Arts Centre building as a starting point, the conversation will consider ways of acknowledging and invoking a building’s former inhabitants. In 2011 Zeqo prepared a tribute exhibition to Raoul Dohmen, the previous inhabitant of Rongwrong’s address. We ask: How much do we project upon buildings and their past lives? At what point do they turn into fictional characters? Is our dwelling antagonistic?

The discussion will take place on Saturday, November 24 at 18:00 in the “Conversation Corner” at INexactly THIS: Kunstvlaai Festival of Independents.

The Kunstvlaai is located at the (former) Sint Nicolaas Lyceum Amsterdam, Prinses Irenestraat 21, Amsterdam. www.kunstvlaai.nl
