15:00 Artist Talks / Axelle Lenaerts + Fabiola Burgos Labra (In the exhibition space)

We invite you to discover the respective artistic practices of two 2023 HISK laureates : Axelle Lenaerts (in discussion with artist Jasper Rigole) and Fabiola Burgos Labra (in discussion with curator Sébastien Pluot).

16:00 Guest Talk and Publication Launch / A Different Path: Re-Approaching Research In And Through The Arts With a Special Emphasis on Poetry and Poetics, Talk by Michael Baers (in the HISK salon)
In 2022-2023, HISK presented a series of artists’ demonstrations and talks that proposed to revisit the question of art practice and research. This series, organized by Jeremiah Day, is narrated in a new pamphlet that will be presented along with a talk by a key speaker in the series: American born, Berlin based artist and thinker Michael Baers.
Michael Baers will present a patchwork of thoughts related to Day’s own project at HISK concerning today’s neo-liberal approaches to culture and education and the way these redound upon contemporary conceptions of art, especially art’s relation to knowledge production. Baers response will revisit some of his past writings on the topic, as well as the potential “investigative poetry” (a term coined by American poet and counter-cultural figure Ed Sanders) offers as an alternative formulation to ”artistic research.”

17:15 Performance / Tanin, Hamed Dehqan (@MILL, Needcompany)
Tanin is a dance performance by Hamed Dehqan and Nathaniel Moore. It delves into the post-1979 Persian dance and reflects upon the fragile relationship between dance and freedom. Tanin creates a group experience remarking on the beauty of dancing together and touching on themes of western imperialism and hegemony.

Free admission - no registration needed. If you cannot make it this Saturday, we have got you covered! We will meet again the two following Saturdays for another programme of talks and performances taking place on December 9 and December 16. We look forward to welcoming you!
