My curatorial practice is focused on self-organised and collaborative formats in close association with cultural practitioners. In my research I am concerned with social and political constellations that have a hold on everyday life. Cultural practices are a way to dislodge the hold the present has on us, they enable the exploration and experimentation with alternative forms of life and the organisation of things among us. This can be done by reappropriating the past, reshuffling the present, and (re)claiming the time to come.
In my projects there are some recurring curatorial tactics. As a curator I aim to set out parameters within which different articulations and constellations can occur. For this I make use of a practice of assembly. Spatially this practice is translated in the form of scenographies that enable collective exchange or organisational forms in which critical mutual care can flourish. In the content assembly comes back by bringing apparently disparate practices and perspectives together in order to converge and deflect. Consequently, my projects are characterized by an emphasis on the process. The outcome can result in an exhibition or publication in which I try to keep the playful but brisk character of an essay.
With my curatorial practice I want to reconfigure ways of seeing and doing by giving room to a plurality of voices and narratives. Only in this way can the complexities, difficulties and potentialities of our present become apparent.
