In the context of an ongoing research programme I’m organising with Radical Reversibility Seeing without a Seer – a show and symposium at Looiersgracht 60 in Amsterdam – a great space for such an event. Seeing Without a Seer focusses on alternative ways of looking, thinking and image-making that evade the central position of the beholder. Drawing from a diversity of fields like experimental psychology, biology, geometry and philosophy, the artists delve into the barely visible and the microscopic and examine image-making in a post-digital era. The programme explores ideas about a “self-seeing world” and inquires into non-anthropocentrical ways of being in the world. From the 20th till the 30th of September. We’re in the City Programme of Unseen. Some links soon!
As a tutor from the Master Institute at AKV|St. Joost, Den Bosch I was involved in the program of the para-academic educational program OPEN SET LAB with a lecture, two workshops, a panel-discussion and an interview [reader] that relate to the theme ‘Memories of the Future’: Kill the hard News and Kill our Icons.

Last summer I started cooperative Radical Reversibility together with Martine Stig, Elodie Hiryczuk & Sjoerd van Oevelen. We are a research-based art cooperation that envisions new horizons, alternative perspectives and different concepts toward a fundamental transformation of our looking and thinking. Read here how we would like to accomplish – or contribute at least a bit to this ambitious idea. And/or check out: www.radicalreversibility.org.
Last summer this great book has been issued: Wdwreview – Arts, Culture, and Journalism in Revolt, Vol 1. (2013-2016) with editors Defne Ayas and Adam Kleinman (2017) Rotterdam: With de With Publishers. For the online platform I have been picture-editor for three years (2013-2016), according to almost all images that appeared in the book.
