Eventually I’d have to disappear Podcast on the traces we leave behind as artists, and how to work with them ethically, philosophically, artistically.
The next four weeks we will be bringing you a new mini-series, by an ArtEZ Alumna. Starting from her thesis 'In search of a non coherent narrative. From an oppressive archive towards an anarchive open for all voices, all narratives, all perspectives' Dieuwke Slump created a podcast titled 'Eventually I'd have to disappear. Podcast on the traces we leave behind as artists and how to work with them ethically, philosophically, artistically'. In every chapter of this podcast, Dieuwke invites a guest to join her and talk about their archive, and how they work with or against it. Dieuwke sees the chapters as small works of art, which she completes with sounds and voice-overs. She believes that in this time, it is important to take a look at our history and at how we remember it: which stories are told and which are forgotten, because this shapes our present and our future. How can we as artists deal with that in creative and radical ways? What can we contribute to this conversation, by being aware of our own archive and by making artistic interventions to create more space for different voices, narratives, perspectives?
Chapter one with Milo Rau Dieuwke talks to the controversial artist, activist and artistic director of NT Gent about the difference between art and activism; the never-ending project of deconstruction; and theatre plays as traces of a revolution. Also in this chapter: lessons in which 13-years-old learn how deep listening is a physical activity, and the amazing music of Warner Slump.
