NTU CCA Residencies Insights: Lecture by Hendrik Folkerts, WORKING ON IT: Notes on place, labour and economy in contemporary performance

1 Apr 2015, Wed 7:30pm - 9:00pm
NTU CCA Singapore, The Single Screen, Block 43 Malan Road, Gillman Barracks

This talk by Curator-in-Residence, Hendrik Folkerts takes the Stedelijk Museum’s performance programme since 2010 as a point of departure. How does museum architecture, scale and monumentality affect the display of contemporary performance practice? And in what ways can we address questions of capital and economy – relating to the presentation, acquisition and conservation of performance work?

Hendrik Folkerts is co-curator of documenta 14, Kassel Germany and Athens, Greece. From 2010 until 2015, he was Curator of Performance, Film & Discursive Programs at the Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam.
