This group exhibition considers time as a circulation: finitude as a potential redistribution of value, seeing ruins as forms of emergence, and delving into one’s being-in-the-world as a manifold story that is entangled with the being of this earth. When disappearing we are also appearing elsewhere. The News will begin to resemble the Moon cycle as catastrophe accelerates. Tomorrow is only a blueprint. The Ant told the Spider: ‘That’s why I say that the individual act-ant is not an agent. Rather, agency – that is, what makes things happen – is distributed throughout the network.’ (Tim Ingold) Tomorrow, I May Disappear considers collectivity in Art as a worthy chance operation amidst a horizon of unpredictability.

Drawing Conclusions Location: BAK, basis voor actuele kunst, Lange Nieuwstraat 4, Utrecht, June 24, 12-17h
Prior to the opening of the exhibition A Call for Drawings at BAK, a symposium will be held to discuss and evaluate the outcomes of this interdisciplinary project. The symposium focuses on the meaning of drawings for various forms of knowledge production. How do drawings relate to visual thinking? What role do they play in creative and cognitive processes? And what is the significance of drawings when solving problems and communicating possible solutions?
