encounter AiR for Experiment – is there enough room for experiment in the cultural landscape of Europe?
How can artist organizations, artist-in-residence programs and local governments work together at local level to enhance the European cultural landscape? The encounter AiR for Experiment takes place December 2nd at Lijm & Cultuur in Delft, the Netherlands. Everyone is welcome to participate.
Artist organizations and artist-in-residence programs provide open, relational, social spaces embedded in the locality of a village or city. They connect artists and create communities of practitioners: to test ideas, take creative risks and explore new directions in their artistic practice. Many of these initiatives operate internationally and function as local platforms for the production and presentation of new work, as well as the development of discourse, knowledge and understanding, including in the arts and in society. Often they engage in experimental manner in social, economic and cultural structures of a city or region. More and more partners, such as funds and policymakers, follow these developments and connect in search of dialogue and collaboration.
Medium-sized cities in Europe are embedded in the structures and cultural networks of a region, seeking to offer a counterweight to the capital cities that often recruit all the arts and culture. How can dialogue and collaboration between local governments and artist organizations take place in this context? What short and long-term effects can art projects generate for a city or a region? These and other questions will be explored in several case studies together with policymakers, artist organizations and artist-in-residence programs from the Netherlands and different regions in Europe.
One of the starting points of the program for the encounter AiR for Experiment is the recently published book Artist-Run-Europe. Initiated by Pallas Projects in Dublin, this part how-to manual, part history, and part socio-political critique, looks at the conditions, organizational models, and role of artist-led practice within contemporary art and society within Europe. Accordingly AiR Platform NL and Platform BK instigated an investigation about the parameters of the artist-run model, operating within the setting of small cities and villages in the Netherlands. With the aim to compose, together with the outcomes of the program, the first draft of a document of recommendations; working together towards more diverse arts-ecologies.
The encounter AiR for Experiment is a collaborative venture between id11 and DutchCulture | Transartists in the context of the EU project CreArt.

STATEGIES in the framework of CreArt. Network of Cities for Artistic
Artist-in-Residence is a changing phenomenon. Hosts and guests develop
new strategies, or they reinvent the ways they operate, because of shifting
economic, political, and cultural circumstances.
This seminar brings Artist-in-Residence programs together from the
Netherlands, Europe, and Russia, to share the latest insights in
Artist-in-Residence strategies. Some opt for interdisciplinary research, others
for integrating artistic goals with commercial activities. Some focus on the
specificity of their location, others try to connect to the needs of other
- Which new
artist-in-residence strategies are developed?
- What are the
consequences for collaboration, programming, funding?
- How can networks,
cultural organizations, funds, and governments connect to these developments?
Experts will share their visions with us in workshop-explorations,
amongst them: Janwillem Schrofer
, organizational sociologist, former president
Rijksakademie Amsterdam (1982-2010) - Georgi Nikich
, director of the Moscow
Union of Exhibitions Halls - Leontine Meijer van Mensch

the artists about their project
The crisis of everything everywhere
The exhibition space is deconstructed by different interventions.
Water drips down from the ceiling in countless places and gives the
impression of a leaky and permeable roof. The water is collected in a
set of buckets resting on the floor below the leaks and this artificial
field of buckets creates some kind of counterpart to the ceiling,
reflecting the damage of this room. A sculpture of cables and hoses is
hanging out from the damaged roof and different paintings on canvas
mimic the ceilings texture. Furthermore the continuously dripping
creates a very gentle and haunting composition of decay. These
interventions create a space in state of suspense between deconstruction
and construction, between real and artificial elements. "The crisis of
everything everywhere" deals primarily with the relocation and shifting
of values and realities.
Jacqueline Heerema, Ronald Boer, Eliane Bots (Satellietgroep
, The Hague).
Dutch painting, during the Baroque period, established a separation
between the inside and outside of the city. It linked the woman inside
(the house, family, spirituality...) and the man outside (the city,
trade...). Through my work I will try to bring these two visions into
one creating a view from the inside and outside at the same time. The
Dutch painter beauty was not necessarily in an established repertoire of
forms but he could decide for himself to show the beauty of a simple
gesture. In my work this simple gesture will be stitches of red thread
running through the streets of Delft.
Coen de Jong (38CC
Koornmarkt 48F, Westvest 147, Prinses Irenetunnel
In my project architectural details of the city of Delft functions as
moulds. Later I transform them into garments. The installation is about
the surfaces of buildings, proportions of the body and built
environment, the remnants of our existence embedded in the environment,
the reflections of buildings within ourselves. Pieces that are created
appear on the body like second skin and are suggesting wearability.
Anique Weve, Floor Cornelisse (Fam Ruim, Rotterdam).
We live in an age of increasingly globalized consumerism. Through the
Holy Shuttle I turned back in time when I had to walk for miles to get
the water. I used to carry the water in plastic bottles that at the time
were rare and precious, so I used the bottle caps for my work as they
still were precious. The circle form of caps represents the continuity,
so depicts the life cycle, the nature's flow. Furthermore the caps are
witnesses of a consumerism programmed pleasure. I asked people to
cherish the shuttle by bringing the caps to me, so that they would
indirectly participate in shuttle's construction. The Holy Shuttle is an
intimate personal meditation as well as a parody on the spirituality of
the science and the intrinsic naturality of the artificial.
Réka Deuten Makkai (Den Haag).
'And then I just bumped into it.'
Unnoticed you walk on a street and navigate from one point to another.
En route you find objects where you walk around, you use or stumble over
them. Within the project of id11 I made use of street furniture that
can be seen as a recognizable element out of our daily environment. What
are these objects, what is their function and how can they be used or
viewed in a different way?
Iris Cornelis (gallery Iris Cornelis
When I close my eyes I do not see darkness. I see light explosions in
all shapes and forms, like fireworks in the night sky creating
geometrical patterns. And in this patterns I see figures, faces, entire
cities and landscapes unrolling and ever-changing.
When I close my eyes I do not see darkness because my visual cortex is
taking over and the theater of my mind gives a new outstanding
performance every time.
When I close my eyes I do not see darkness. I see light.
Piet de Jonge (curator e.g. RAW CHINA
EXPO, chief editor WHAT'S UP. Worked as senior curator modern art at
Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen, Museum Kröller Müller and Van Abbemuseum).
“I work with a space through displacement and play, where objects and
tools loose their usual function; no longer exist but rather subsist.”
preserve(definition): to resist decomposition
The sculptural installation draws from the inter-relation of monuments
and construction sites. The artist experience of architecture becomes
the moment of the reconstruction: to preserve can also mean to change,
where new identity appears. The sculptural process is more applied as a
transformation rather than translation. Searching of origins and new
identities of architectural elements and surfaces in Delft through
Weronika Zielinska (Upominki
Signs, repetitions, pauses, and voids embody an abstract vision of what
is more abstract in reality: the geometric skeleton of the natural
world, dynamics and variables of contemporary life. A landscape where
video and sculpture come together in an audacious dialogue, despoiled of
the real and return to the principle of art and the essence of things,
the very foundation of thought and knowledge.
