Refuge | Conference Festival


Wed Mar 22 2023 at 11:00 am


Stedelijk Museum | Amsterdam, NH

Studium Generale presents a four-day conference where different curators fill a day with diverse artistic perspectives on the theme Refuge - fleeing, flowing, leaking.
This year's central theme is refuge. Human and non-human animals seek refuge because of war, terror, hunger, exploitation, climate change, or because of structural forms of daily oppression and exclusion. You can find refuge in a camp, shelter, safe space, in a body, state of being, state of mind. Or you take refuge in a (self-chosen) family, community, movement, or collective.
This edition of Studium Generale and Rietveld Uncut considers the phenomenon of refuge not only as a concrete and physical construction in a violent or toxic reality, but also as a potential affective space or caring body. It considers how limiting systems (ideologies, states, institutions, academies, machines...) flow and leak unpredictably, from which lines of flight can emerge.
From there, how can we harbour and connect bodies and create refuges for affective and dissident voices?
Guest curators: Erika Sprey, DAAR (Sandi Hilal & Alessandro Petti), Feifei Zhou, Nina bell F.
Nap Ministry (Tricia Hersey), Camille Barton, Daniel Godinez Nivon, Mala Kline, Marcos Lutyens & Viktorija Rybakova, Laryssa Kim, Anna Tsingh (online), Nuraini Juliastuti, Yolande van der Heide and many others.
