The Bcademie publishes interviews of their participants on a regular basis - recently they asked me some nice questions.

Let us introduce you to : 

Henriette von Muenchhausen
participant of TEAM AED

I graduated in 2017 at the KABK in The Hague.
My work consists mainly of drawings, sculptures and photos / short videos, which like to switch roles. A sculpture can be activated by a performance, come back in a drawing or get another life as a hand-coloured photographic print. The works are autonomous, but sometimes come together in installations. Thematically, the absurd, the sensual and the ephemeral aspects of life are input and outcome at the same time.”

Why did you apply for the Bcademie? What do you hope to get out of it?

I simply was curious - and liked the idea of an informal setting where ‘secret information’ and stories about different paths in the artworld are shared with and amongst us recently graduates. This turns out to be very useful for insights in how to pursue an artistic career. 

Of course this  experience creates a bond as well, and the Bcademie-network is another important reason why I applied. A while ago, I met an artist I did not know before – we were in a group show together and had works installed next to each other – and it was very nice to find out we both are part of the Bcademie. Now we follow each other’s works on social media. The network grows in a natural way.

What question did you ask during the last Bcademie-meeting?

My main question was if I should launch an online-only gallery. I stumbled upon one recently and liked the concept, the idea of creating a platform for fellow artists to show their work. I got useful remarks, and the simple yet energetic comment “Just try it” finally lead to GOLDMALI Gallery which is currently hosting its first online exhibition!

Thanks Henriette! Do you have any upcoming exhibitions that we can visit?

[[ EVERYONE’S ASKING IF I’M OK / NO ONE’S ASKING IF I’M OK ]], an exhibition which is organized by the icing room, an artist-led space in London. It will take place in April at different locations worldwide, and my work consists of going for a walk with a recalcitrant sculpture. I am very much looking forward to doing so.
Furthermore, I am planning a little guerilla performative action during Glasgow International, when I will be visiting an artist friend over there. Updates will be posted on my website!

Launch of Goldmali Gallery

I am happy to announce the launch of GOLDMALI Gallery - and its first show!

GOLDMALI is a new online-only gallery which is intended as a curated platform to show (not sell) work by artists worldwide. It is born out of the wish to discover and share the work of fellow artists.

Every exhibition runs for one month and is accessible 24/7.

Now on view until April 30, 2018:

A stroll through fluorescent woods

I will give an online workshop @ Bandwi/d/th: The Togethering Lab’s Online Relational Festival.

The Togethering Lab goes cyber for our week-long, international festival of online relational experiments! Join us for a series of workshops which explore ways of being together through digital communication technologies. How might dispersed networks perform intimacy? How does the digital carry our bodies? How far can we imaginatively extend these platforms? What new modes of togetherness can be created there? How is our experience of materiality - the screen, our lover, the subway platform - altered, mediated, (un)done?  Each workshop is, at its heart, an experiment - beginning with a question in mind (or series of questions), which is then investigated using a toolkit of diverse relational practices (philosophical, theoretical, therapeutic, textual, artistic, embodied, meditative). Participants will have the opportunity to fill in lab sheets after each experiment to further pry open  investigations and document our findings.
