n 17 September, Lina Saneh and Rabih Mroué started their 10-week block at DasArts, entitled ‘Current Events in the Past Tense’. They will be using the block to reflect on time of actual events, the time of news, the timing of (an) event(s) and the time of art.
They will also be exploring questions of narratives and strategies. Over the course of the block, a series of guest teachers will offer their input into the investigation and raise new questions. We’re expecting Stephen Wright, Fadi Abdallah, Alex Karschnia and Hito Steyerl.
Once in a while we open our doors, in order to share the ideas and experiences with an audience. Go to www.dasarts.nl for upcoming film screenings, lectures and presentations by students, all happening at DasArts, all free of charge.
One of the first events was our participation in the 24/7 Truth is Concrete marathon at the Steirischer Herbst festival in Graz (//truthisconcrete.org).
