Official launch: Friday, May 22, 2020
Time: 11:00 AM
The three-day symposium In the pause of a gesture there might be an echo, which was due to take place at puntWG from May 1 to May 3, 2020, would have examined artistic affiliations with heritage in a European context through a lively exchange of all kinds of understandings, perceptions, and experiences.
Now that the symposium has become an online platform, there is a more fluid time frame. Without a clear trajectory, living up to the event's title, the exhibition's organizers entered a pause in time.
Participating artists: Alena Alexandrova, Nataša Bodrožić, Jeroen Boomgaard, Yane Calovski, Doplgenger, Marjoca de Greef, Rumiko Hagiwara, Hristina Ivanoska, Sarah van Lamsweerde, Aram Lee, Luiza Margan, Anastasija Pandilovska, Antonis Pittas, Richtje Reinsma and Ivana Vaseva
A note from the organisers:
The main objective of the platform is to explore how artistic practices coalesce and affiliate with cultural heritage. The main feature of the platform is interconnection and cooperation.
Parallel to the individual presentations and performances, participants started one-on-one conversations and artistic collaborations by means of online and distanced communication. At this moment in time, we can dawdle and dedicate time and effort to see if these relationships between participants and between their presentations can be developed.
The transformed symposium developed into a collection of multi-formed presentations by artists, writers, curators and researchers whose practices address topics such as “heritage activism”, “objects in the dark”, “collective memory”, “photographic ruins”, “forgotten histories”, “critical nostalgia”, and the “dimensions of time and space”.
The symposium In the pause of a gesture there might be an echo is organized by Suns and Stars and curated by Anastasija Pandilovska and Marjoca de Greef.
