#SMYA Chapter 6: Muslim Feminism in Belgium and Secular Liberal Constraints

The last chapter within the framework of Show Me Your Archive and I Will Tell You Who is in Power starts with a lecture by Iman Lechkar, dr. in Social and Cultural Anthropology (2012, KUL). Lechkar sketches the contours of an Islamic feminism in Belgium by ascertaining which mechanisms hinder Muslim women and how they organize themselves to achieve their fundamental rights within secular liberal constraints.

The lecture will be followed by a slam poetry performance by Samira Saleh. She performed a.o. at Female Takeover in a Man’s World Show and the 44th Women’s Day. Since this year she has been Slambassadrice for Belgium at Next Generation Speaks.

The evening will close with a panel discussion with Fatma Arikoglu (Ella vzw — center for gender and ethnicity), Nella van den Brandt (postdoc in Humanities at Universiteit Utrecht) & Samira Saleh , moderated by Sophie Withaeckx (doctor in Philosophy and Moral Science and associated with RHEA).

This event is organized together with Sophia, Belgian Gender Studies Network, and will be held in the Cirque space in Dutch.

The evening, and the exhibition too, will end with a drink in KIOSK, where you can see the show until 22:00.

#SMYA Chapter 5: Speak Up/Make Your Way

The fifth chapter of Show Me Your Archive and I Will Tell You Who is in Power will comprise of a screening of participating artist Amandine Gay’s film Speak Up/Make Your Way (Ouvrir La Voix). The film will be introduced by Gay and followed by a Q&A with Amandine Gay and Po B.K. Lomami, one of the interviewees of the film and manager of socio-artistic projects and queer activist.

Ouvrir La Voix is a film about francophone European black women from the diaspora. It showcases art performances and compelling storytelling from those who are usually spoken of or spoken for. The film will therefore focus on our common experience related to our minority status in predominantly White ex-colonial countries, while highlighting the great diversity of our Afropean communities. Ouvrir La Voix aims at bringing to light our existence at the crossroad of multiple discriminations that go way beyond our ‘black women’ status. Ouvrir La Voix is a statement from francophone European black women so as to why we choose to reclaim the narrative about ourselves. We will not be silenced, we will not be erased and we are in charge of our representation.” - Amandine Gay

Amandine Gay (1984, FR) is a Montreal-based Afrofeminist filmmaker, activist, and journalist. The feature-length documentary Ouvrir La Voix is her directorial debut.

Po B. K. Lomami (1989, Mons, BE) is a Congo-descendant afroqueer, afrofeminist and anti-negrophobia activist and an independant DIY socio-artistic project manager. She (or they) is currently the head of cultural programming of the 49 Nord 6 Est - Frac Lorraine (Regional Contemporary Art Collection) in Metz, France.

*This conversation will be held in English

KIOSK will be open until 10 pm. You can visit the exhibition Show Me Your Archive and I Will Tell You Who is in Power before or after the event (free).

#SMYA Chapter 4: A Short History of the Future

In a performance with live reading and video projection, Kapwani Kiwanga takes on the role of a fictional anthropologist. In this role, she speculates about the future and researches Afrofuturism as a tool to look at the past from an African or African diasporic perspective.

Kiwanga toys with the voice of authority. By using humor, she tries to disrupt hegemonic narratives and give voice to fictional stories.

Kapwani Kiwanga (1978, Ontario, CA) lives and works in Oaris (FR). She studied anthropology and comparative religious studies at McGill University (Montréal, CA). In her work, she struggles with Afrofuturism, anti-colonialism, collective memory, belief systems and ways in which different cultures approach the supernatural.

#SMYA Chapter 3: On ‘Cahiers du Grif’

For the third chapter of ‘Show Me Your Archive and I Will Tell You Who is in Power’, Mara Montanaro will give a lecture on the journal ‘Cahiers du Grif’. These Cahiers du ‘Groupe de Recherche et d’Information Féministes’ was the first and most influential French-language feminist journal. In 1973 it was co-founded by Belgian writer, philosopher and feminist Françoise Collin.

The first cahier, titled ‘Le feminisme, pour quoi faire?’ (1973), questioned the young feminist movement and introduced an element of reflection in Belgian second-wave feminism, that up to then mostly consisted of manifestations (like the Dolle Minas). The editorial office, that comprised of only females, moved from Brussels to Paris in 1982.

Mara Montanaro is Doctor of Philosophy associated with LEGS (Laboratoire d’études de genre et sexualités), Université Paris 8. Her main research interests are contemporary French philosophy, feminist theories and gender and postcolonial studies.

Please note that this event will be in French.

#SMYA Chapter 2: Uitgekeken op de thuisblijvende vrouw

The second chapter of Show Me Your Archive and I Will Tell You Who is in Power will focus on Second-Wave feminism, with a special interest in the Ghent Dolle Minas.

19:00
Conversation with Chantal De Smet and Jacqui Goegebeur about the Ghent Dolle Minas

From 1989 to 1996, Chantal De Smet was the first, and so far only, woman to be head of the Ghent Academy (now known as KASK/School of Arts). In 1977 De Smet wrote the title words "Op de thuisblijvende vrouw uitgekeken"* in the first of nine LeF-cahiers. Before she started LeF (Leftist and Feminist collective), De Smet took the lead in founding the Ghent Dolle Minas.

Jacqui Goegebeur, Dolle Mina of a later generation, graduated from African studies. Goegebeur was born in Rwanda — her mother black, her father white. After her father died when she was six months old, Belgian authorities took her away from her mother, to an orphanage in Savé (Rwanda), and later to several foster families in Belgium. Unwillingly this not only caused her to be a witness, but also a product of our colonial past. Testimonies of this were published in the book Mixed 2010, of which Goegebeur was the initiator.

20:30
Filmscreening of Chantal Akerman’s Jeanne Dielman, 23, quai du Commerce, 1080 Bruxelles, introduced by film historian Hilde D’haeyere.

In this film, for a little over three hours, we look at a stay-at-home mom. Chantal Akerman made the film at 25 years old, with an all-female crew. Upon its release in 1975, The New York Times called the film the “first masterpiece of the feminine in the history of the cinema”.

#SMYA Chapter 1: Who is speaking? Representation and non-representation in (art) politics today

The public program of Show Me Your Archive and I Will Tell You Who is in Power opens on April 27 with Chapter 1: Who is speaking? Representation and non-representation in (art) politics today.

19:00: Screening of 'La conférence des femmes, Naïrobi '85' by Françoise Dasques (KASKcinema)

20:30: Conversation between Paola Bacchetta and Françoise Vergès (Cirque)

In the framework of the programme of L’Internationale Dialogues*, the political scientist and feminist Françoise Vergès and feminist and queer scholar and sociologist Paola Bacchetta will be engaged in a conversation about who has the right to speak in our societies. They will address this question through looking into their personal and professional paths, and decolonization movements within feminist history and theory.

*Over the past four years, L’Internationale and its partners have worked in the current unstable geopolitical and ecological constellation to activate the values of culture and international collaboration. What specific contribution can museums and cultural institutions offer to counter the plural crisis of today’s fragmented globalised society? How can specificity, research, dialogue and difference be constructively activated in the institutions of culture to build lasting friendships between communities? This spring, The Uses of Art programme culminates in a series of simultaneous activities, linked through L’Internationale Dialogues: a rich programme of engaged professional dialogues. This programme is launched with a full day of live broadcasts of discussions, performances, and live tours through the new exhibitions, on 27 April, via L’Internationale Online.

The conversation will be held in English.
After the event we invite you for a small drink.

Show Me Your Archive and I Will Tell You Who is in Power

Show Me Your Archive and I Will Tell You Who is in Power combines an exhibition with a public program of lectures, panel discussions, performances and screenings to present stories from the history of feminist struggle. Issues of race, gender and class are covered from a so-called intersectional perspective, an approach that works to bring to the fore the combinations of discriminatory practices and the dynamics they engender. The project’s title refers to the 2009 lecture of the same name by Gloria Wekker, renowned Surinamese-Dutch scholar with an established reputation within the transnational and Black European feminist discourse.

Show Me Your Archive and I Will Tell You Who is in Power wishes to extend its scope beyond Western, white feminism and to trace the potential origins of transnational and intersectional feminism in Belgium. The project’s starting point was the Ghent Royal Academy of Fine Arts and its first (and thus far sole) female head Chantal De Smet, who held the position from 1989 to 1996. In the early 1970s, De Smet was a central character in the Ghent Dolle Minas, one of the first initiatives of the second feminist wave in Flanders. She was also one of the driving forces behind the Belgian Angela Davis Committee.

It was the second feminist wave that pushed the United Nations to taking measures to improve the position of women, resulting in the UN declaring the period 1976-1985 the decade of the woman and the organisation of women’s conferences in Mexico City (1975), Copenhagen (1980) and Nairobi (1985). FORUM ’85, the alternative conference of women’s movements and non-governmental organizations taking place alongside the official UN conference in Nairobi was a key moment in the history of transnational feminism. Attended by 14,000 women, activists and feminists from mainly non-Western countries, it was the first occasion of that scale to stage worldwide encounters and exchanges of ideas.

Documents from public archives that provide insight in these historical and local contexts make up the backbone of the exhibition. In addition, visual artists Marwa Arsanios, Saddie Choua, Amandine Gay, Kapwani Kiwanga, Ato Malinda, Eva Olthof and collective Study Group for Solidarity and TransActions were invited to make new work, connecting with these archives and themes and approach them from a postcolonial, transnational or politically emancipatory context. They offer new critical perspectives on history and in turn help to shape the guise of another new wave of feminism.

The public program wishes to think about how feminism can radically rethink notions such as class, gender and race from a postcolonial perspective. The program starts with a screening of Françoise Dasques’ film Conférence des femmes – Naïrobi (1985) about FORUM ’85, followed by a conversation between Paola Bacchetta (professor of Gender and Women’s Studies, University of California, Berkeley) and French political scientist Françoise Vergès.

Ode de Kort ‘O froooom O toooo O’

In O froooom O toooo O, KASK Photography alumna Ode de Kort explores how an installation can resound in the spaces of a book. The installation 0O (2016) refers to a form, a character, a digit, a movement, a sound. It plays with the two- and three-dimensional and is at times almost imperceptible to the eye because of its meticulous integration in the architecture. From their positioning based on a photographic perspective, the forms look through each other. As such, the installation might even be regarded as a form of typography or choreography. The sculptures from 0O recur throughout this artist’s edition. Once again, the viewer engages with them, albeit the medium in/on/before/through/behind this happens this time is paper. Through perspective, manipulation, rhythm and movement, the circle undergoes several transformations.
In addition to the book launch, de Kort will also present some recent works in KIOSK.

Exhibition open between 10 am and 7 pm

New Years drink & public reading from Dorothy Iannone's artist book "An Icelandic Saga" ((1978 (Part 1), 1983 (Part 2), 1986 (Part 3)) in collaboration with students from KASK DRAMA: Ezra Fieremans, Martijn Gielen, Joeri Happel, Arne Luiting & Rosie Sommers.

In the various phases of "An Icelandic Saga", Iannone looks back on her 1967 trip to Iceland, where she first met Dieter Roth. The “journey which seems to have made all other journeys possible”, as she calls it, commences when her ship arrives at Reykjavik: Iannone, her husband James Upham and Fluxus artist Emmett Williams are greeted by Roth, who is carrying “a very fresh fish, wrapped in newspaper” under his arm.

Posture Editions N° 19: Nel Aerts ‘Hundred Zundert’

Nel Aerts spent a three-month residency at the Vincent Van GoghHuis in Zundert, the village where Van Gogh grew up. Instead of trying to toe the artist’s footsteps, she positioned herself in the iconic interior of the sexton’s house, creating a frame for an extended series of self portraits.
Posture Editions selected one hundred of these ballpoint pen drawings and rendered them full-sized in the publication Hundred Zundert. Nel Aerts already presented a first set of these drawings during her recent exhibition Billenkoek at KIOSK, and for this occasion she will return with a single-day show and a silkscreen poster edition.

Exhibition open from 10am until 7pm.
Book launch at 5pm, with introductions by Ron Dirven and Wim Waelput.

Zachary Formwalt

At 3 pm, KIOSK presents the book Zachary Formwalt – Three Exchanges, in the presence of artist Zachary Formwalt; the book launch is followed by a screening of the artist’s most recent video, An Unknown Quantity (2015, 35’) in the KASKcinema.

The book was made on the occasion of Formwalt’s 2014 and 2015 solo shows at KIOSK, Stedelijk Museum Bureau Amsterdam (SMBA) and Museum of Contemporary Art (MoCAB) Belgrado, respectively. Both exhibitions revolved around the same theme and works: our contemporary global economy, as analyzed by Formwalt in three video installations in which he uses the stock exchange building as a metaphor for the impossibility of visualizing the continuously circulating flows of capital in the contemporary financial world.

Now, we present the third instalment of the video trilogy, which was not yet shown at KIOSK. In An Unknown Quantity, Formwalt aims his camera on the Amsterdam Exchange, built in 1903 by socialist architect H.P. Berlage. How was Berlage, famous for his social housing projects for Amsterdam labourers, able to reconcile his idealism with this commission to design the palace of capitalism?

In collaboration with KASKcinema.

The book Zachary Formwalt – Three Exchanges was published by Roma Publications (ROMA 257), in collaboration with Stedelijk Museum Bureau Amsterdam (SMBA), Museum of Contemporary Art (MoCAB) Belgrado and KIOSK.

Susanne Kriemann & Mekhitar Garabedian

The artist talk featuring Susanne Kriemann (D) and Mekhitar Garabedian (B) will take place in conjunction with the artists’ current duo-exhibition at KIOSK. Located at the former anatomical theatre of the Bijloke site’s renovated Cloquet Institute, it is the first exhibition organised by KIOSK within its renewed mode of operation.

The exhibition does not merely display the two artists’ work; it also demonstrates the way in which they have sought to construct a meaningful dialogue with the exhibition space and its rather determinative architecture. Both artists are particularly fascinated by the relationship between a place’s history, identity, time and memory, and each of them attempts to give meaning to these subjects in her own individual, usually highly inquisitive, way.

During this artist talk the artists will discuss the distinct research process that has contributed to the creation of the works currently exhibited at KIOSK. Their individual approaches will thus be juxtaposed, allowing the two artists to look for similarities between their separate bodies of work in joint discourse.

Slavs&Tatars & Chokri Ben Chikha

Standing squarely as bookends to the two major geopolitical narratives of the last and current century – the communist project in the 20th and revolutionary Islam in the 21st, ‘79.89.09’ looks at two key modern moments – the Iranian Revolution of 1979 and Poland’s Solidarnosc movement in the 1980s – as a narrative strategy to read the recent past.
The lecture will be followed by a performance by Chokri Ben Chikha (researcher School of Arts Ghent).

The lecture had to be cancelled due to illness of the speaker. The performance has taken place.

LE FAUX SOIR

KIOSK was invited to participate in this year’s edition of Art Brussels in the not-for-profit section. KIOSK will present a series of four newspaper editions, one for each day of the fair, conceived by artists who have previously shown work at KIOSK.

The project Le Faux Soir takes its title from a one-off counterfeit of the French-language Belgian newspaper Le Soir. This ‘spoof edition’ was published on 9 November 1943 by the Belgian resistance organisation The Independent Front. Le Faux Soir humorously subverted the propagandist discourse of the occupying forces with the explicit aim of ridiculing them, distributing thousands of copies in the kiosks of Brussels.

Inspired by the story of Le Faux Soir, KIOSK has invited four artists to make a newspaper edition. In their practices, these artists engage with the relation between language, meaning and representation – often with a note of humour or irony. The artists often use the publication format in their practice, and some take up Marcel Broodthaers’s strategy of using fictional means to visualize hidden realities. The artists are: Mekhitar Garabedian, Rana Hamadeh, Sophie Nys, and Koenraad Dedobbeleer.

If you would like to have a copy of the newspapers, just send an e-mail to kiosk@hogent.be or visit our exhibition and get free copies at the counter.

The show A River In A Sea In A River will end with a closing reception at 6 pm and with the performance And Before It Falls It Is Only Reasonable To Enjoy Life a Little by Rana Hamadeh at 6.30 pm.

Inspired by Sun Ra's 1974 film Space is the Place, Oskar Schlemmer's 1926 Diagram for Gesture Dance and Paulus Fürst's 1656 engraving of Doctor Schnabel of Rome, this performance is an exhaustive deliberation on the notion and gesture of 'falling'.
