Design Sediments

31.01–31.03.2024: Huidenclub, Rotterdam, NL

Design Sediments gathers together fourteen artists and designers who explore the contemporary dimensions of sedimentation and larger-than-human time scales.

Through this careful and attentive arrangement of works and bodies of material research, Design Sediments projects on to sedimentary pasts and futures – polychronic realities – through the possibility of a weaving entanglement of temporalities within objects.

24.10–24.11.2019: 6th Lubumbashi Biennale, Lubumbashi, DRC

Future Genealogies, Tales From The Equatorial Line takes the Equator’s imaginary line not as one of demarcation—the majestic Congo River disregards it by straddling it twice—but rather of imbrication. At its closest a place where earth gravity alleviates and where the poles’ magnetic attractions balance each other, the equatorial latitude opens the possibility for narratives that respond to alternate compasses, recognizes new centers of gravity and where de-polarized stories can unfold.

Casco Art Institute: Working for the Commons

26.05–16.07.2017: Casco, Utrecht, NL

After more than twenty-five years as Casco, Casco Projects, and finally Casco – Office for Art, Design and Theory, we are changing our name to Casco Art Institute: Working for the Commons. The title heralds our new modus operandi, presented initially in the form of an exhibition that opens on 26 May 2017. With this change we aim to act on our political-aesthetical intentions and face their urgencies with “working for the commons” as the guiding imperative for all Casco operations.

Why Not Ask Again?

11.11.2016–12.03.2017: 11th Shanghai Bienniale, Power Station of Art, CN

The phrase “Why Not Ask Again” is a bid, and a query, whose ascending, joyously twisting arc embraces the maneuvers, disputations and stories that contain and encode the turbulences and transports of our time. A listener eavesdropping on deep space walks out of the pages of the recent sci-fi novel, The Three Body Problem by Liu Cixin. A wanderer steps out into the deep time of eternity and the straight path of a police bullet in the terminal sequence of the picaresque Bengali film Jukti, Takko aar Gappo from 1974 by Ritwik Ghatak. They embody the spirit of a mobile triangulation between reason, intuition and the fabulous that the Biennale seeks to discover, transmit, and learn from. Chief curators – Raqs Media Collective.

What does an analysis of these images reveal, and what can we offer in reply to them?
