Double Feature: 1. Jeanne van Heeswijk: Dreamscaping, a collective topography of politically daring dreams and embodied community knowledges; 2. Anh-Linh Ngo (ARCH+): Politik des Raums im Neuen Berlin

5. November 2020  @ 19:00 21:00 CET

Jeanne van Heeswijk is a Rot­ter­dam based artist who facil­i­tates the cre­ation of dynam­ic and diver­si­fied pub­lic spaces to »rad­i­cal­ize the local.« Her long-scale com­mu­ni­ty-embed­ded projects ques­tion art’s auton­o­my by com­bin­ing per­for­ma­tive actions, dis­cus­sions, and oth­er forms of orga­niz­ing and ped­a­gogy to assist com­mu­ni­ties in tak­ing con­trol of their futures. Her ongo­ing research train­ing for the »Not Yet« devel­ops a cur­ricu­lum of com­mu­ni­ty learn­ings through the­o­ret­i­cal frame­works, per­for­ma­tive work­shops, cre­at­ing »learn­ing objects,« and devel­op­ing test sites to enact train­ing for the »Not Yet.«

Anh-Linh Ngo is an archi­tect, author, and co-edi­tor of ARCH+. He is co-founder of the inter­na­tion­al ini­tia­tive pro­jekt bauhaus, which, from 2015–19, crit­i­cal­ly exam­ined Bauhaus ideas through sym­posia, work­shops, pop-up exhi­bi­tions, and a per­for­mance. He was a mem­ber of the art advi­so­ry board of the ifa (Insti­tute for For­eign Cul­tur­al Rela­tions, 2010–16), for which he devel­oped the tour­ing exhi­bi­tion Post-Oil City in 2009. In 2018, the ifa exhi­bi­tion An Atlas of Com­mon­ing: Places of Col­lec­tive Pro­duc­tion, which he co-ini­ti­at­ed and curat­ed, pre­miered in Berlin and has been tour­ing world­wide for ten years. He is a mem­ber of the board of trustees of the IBA 2027 StadtRe­gion Stuttgart.
