Lecturer in: 2010
Eva Kerremans (BE, 1979) is an art theoretician, writer and independent curator. She graduated cum laude art history & archaelogy at the Vrije Universiteit Brussel. She continued her research at the HISK as a kind of Sherlock Holmes, trying to define the position of an artist and art market. This research resulted in two documentaries Do we forget about the artist when we get older or do we get older when we forget about the artist?& The Art Machine. She was editor Fine arts at Electronic Music and Art Magazine Kanaal 0.
Now she mainly writes as an art critic for Metropolis M and art magazine.
She coordinated the theoretical aspects of One Day Show Multimasters in Tent.(Rotterdam) 2009. The One Day Show was the end of the result of the project Multimasters in which the students from the Willem de Kooning (Rotterdam) and the students from the Royal Academy of Art (The Hague) became familiar with the theoretical and practical aspects of the limitations and consequences of exhibition models. From 12 o’clock noon till 12 o’clock midnight, the exhibition BLURRR was the podium for their performances, parasitic art works, music and encounters.
In 2010 Eva will curate a show I Kina Spiser de Hunde with some students from the Royal Academy of Art (the Hague) in collaboration with Stroom. She will also be guest lecturer at the Art Academy of Tblisi (Georgie). In collaboration with Giorgi Gagoshidze (GAGO) and Melano Sokhadze she will be recording a poetic political documentary there.
In collaboration with Andrej Skufca she will curate a project in Galerija BOKS Ljubljana, Slovenia. The project is based on the lack of an objective space for students and young artists in Ljubljana adequate for evaluating an art work away from any and all elements that distort its meaning. The space presents an absolute need and a standard in any art institution throughout the European Union. Just as a standard and of key importance is the position of this project space as an autonomous platform for students to freely engage in a critical discourse with the surrounding (art) system. Project BOKS fulfills the need for an optimal –objectified exhibition space for the students of the Academy of Fine Arts and Design in Ljubljana as well as it will open the potential to pursue a public orientated program. The program will explore interdisciplinary activities such as education, art production and research development in the field of fine arts, inter-media, performance and music together with theory and the development of critical thought and analysis. The goal of connecting students to a broadened social and cultural area springs the construction of a context for functioning, which will present young artists, curators and theoreticians an opportunity to appoint themselves within this new field of contemporary art.
