ArtEZ WinterLAB

Rituelen zijn scharniermomenten van emoties waar waarden op expressieve wijze tot uitdrukking komen. Tijdens WINTERLAB onderzoek ik samen met predikant Martin Jans en 27 studenten de betekenis van een ritueel, bouwstenen waarmee rituelen ontstaan en welke fases worden doorlopen tijdens het uitoefenen van een ritueel.

Moving Moengo

January 2018, together with filmmaker Magda Augusteijn, I’ll do research by mapping rituals as conversation pieces of different population groups [Maroon, Amerindian, Hindustanis, Creoles, Chinese, Javanese] living together in Moengo, Suriname. Art students of Nola Hatterman Art Academy in Paramaribo will create cultural probe toolkits for the inhabitants. The project Moving Moengo has been granted by Creative Industries Fund.

Local & global rituals

Workshop about rituals at AKV | St.Joost ‘Living with people who differ is the most urgent challenge facing civil society today. We tend socially to avoid engaging with people unlike ourselves, and modern politics encourages the politics of the tribe rather than of the city. Richard Sennett discusses in his book ‘Together: The Rituals, Pleasures and Politics of Cooperation’ why this has happened 

and what might be done about it.’

Lecture VU & ArtEZ

Tuesday November 21th two lectures take place: in the morning at ArtEZ Fine Art & Design Education Arnhem and afternoon at VU faculty Anthropology, Amsterdam. Both lectures I’ll introduce the connection between Design and Anthropology.
