1M³: ‘102 Craters on Venus’, selected by Sophie Nys

De toelating van vrouwen in de oudste universiteit van Zwitserland was een tamelijk vertraagde ontwikkeling; pas vanaf 1890 werden vrouwen toegestaan hier te studeren. De eerste keer dat een vrouw een geassocieerde professor werd was in 1928. De benoeming van een vrouw tot bona fide professor gebeurde pas in 1964. De historische collegezaal van de universiteit in Basel is gedecoreerd met 102 schilderijen die voormalige professoren en onderzoekers afbeelden. Het laatste portret werd toegevoegd in 1914, resulterende in een voelbare afwezigheid van vrouwelijke wetenschappers.

In de kunstenaarspublicatie 102 craters on Venus onderzoekt Nys de historische uitsluiting van de verwezenlijkingen van vrouwelijke wetenschappers door vooraanstaande instituten van hoger onderwijs.

Op donderdag 23 mei 2019 om 19:00 zullen twaalf publicaties van de kunstenaarsboekencollectie van de Kunstenbibliotheek toegevoegd worden aan iedere biografie. Tevens wordt een addendum voor het gedoneerde kunstenaarsboek gepresenteerd. Deze presentatie valt samen met Sophie Nys’ tentoonstelling Family Nexus in KIOSK, die nog tot 14 juni te zien is.

Nacht van de weerklank

Nacht van de weerklank is ontstaan vanuit het idee de akoestische kwaliteiten van KIOSK te ontdekken en te vergroten. Gerard Herman, KRAAK en De Player slaan de handen ineen om een intense en intieme luisteromgeving te creëren. Door de hoeveelheid aan mogelijkheden van reverb en resonantie, biedt de ruimte een wisselwerking met de uitgenodigde muzikanten.

Agency Assembly: ‘Thing 002304 (carpets)’

On January 27, 2019, as part of Assembly (KIOSK), Agency is convening a gathering of 'concerned' in order to discuss Thing 002304 (carpets).

Thing 002304 (carpets) concerns a conflict between the textile companies Artessuto and B&T Textilia about drawings of townscapes which are used in tapestries and cushions. During the case, Artessuto v. B&T Textilia on January 26, 2012, the Belgian Supreme Court had to decide if Artessuto’s woven carpets were sufficiently original to qualify for copyright protection as a work of art.

We will read collectively through fragments of the case reports. The purpose of this gathering is to revisit the moment of hesitation during the court case and to actualize the problem discussed in the case as a way to fabulate. Sari Depreeuw (copyright lawyer), Heike Dobbelaere (designer), Renée Strikkeling (textile designer), Wendy Van Wynsberghe (programmer and artist, etc. are invited by Agency in order to resonate on this case.

Agency Assembly: ‘Thing 001928 (Give Up Yer Aul Sins)’

On December 9, 2018, as part of Assembly (KIOSK), Agency is convening a gathering of 'concerned' in order to discuss Thing 001928 (Give Up Yer Aul Sins).

Thing 001928 (Give Up Yer Aul Sins) concerns a conflict between Pauline Gormley and EMI Records around a recording of bible stories told by children from Dublin. The tape recordings were made during Peig Cunningham's class for first communion, which Pauline Gormley attended when she was a six-year-old child. EMI used the recording without noticing the children for a CD introduced by Father Brian D'Arcy. During the court case, Pauline Gormley v. EMI on November 17, 1998, judge Barron at the Irish Supreme Court had to decide if Pauline Gormley’s recounting of the bible story And then there were twelve as a child in class was sufficiently original to be protected as a work of art.

We will collectively read fragments of the Irish court case reports. The purpose of this gathering is to revisit the moment of hesitation during the court case and to actualize the problem discussed in the case as a way to fabulate. Lucia Alonso (child), Mette Edvardsen (performer), Jan Masschelein (researcher on education) Dirk Vervenne (legal adviser) a.o. are invited by Agency in order to resonate.

Daniel García Andújar

Daniel García Andújar (1966, Spain), a central figure in the Spanish internet art scene, will give a talk about his artistic practice and exhibition Plus ultra which is currently on show at KIOSK.

Since the late 80s he has been starting up internet projects and -collectives. These collectives hack and appropriate material from contemporary culture with the aim of revealing the often problematic politics or absurd logic of the internet. With open source and collective methods of production, they undermine the notion of material or intellectual property, or the newly acquired power of digital technology.

The exhibition Plus ultra will be open until 10pm.

Attending the lecture is free, no reservations required.

Presentation member edition 2018: Kelly Schacht

Every year KIOSK invites an artist to create a member edition, with this year's edition being by Kelly Schacht. The edition will be presented on April 22, during KASK / School of Arts' open house.

The edition It seems economical to make use of a character already in play refers to the scenario Kelly Schacht drafted for her eponymous exhibition in 2013 in KIOSK. As in an unfolding minimal scenography, walk-on actors engage in a dialogue with each other, a series of objects, the space and its visitors. This object (or utensil) depicts a specific encounter between a walk-on actor and a prop, and a father and his daughter while visiting the exhibition.

Kelly Schacht (°1983, Roeselare, Belgium) currently resides in Ghent. In 2013, KIOSK hosted her exhibition It seems economical to make use of a character already in play.

If you would like to support KIOSK, you can become a member of KIOSK for as little as €50! As part of your one-year membership, you will receive among others the 2018 artist edition by Kelly Schacht. For more information, please go to the "support"-page.
