Nederland #1

We have been invited, in conjunction with our shared research and engagement in the development of the Campus in Camps project, to become research fellows in the academic year 2017–2018 as part of BAK’s new post-academic fellowship research itinerary: Propositions for Non Fascist Living.

We aim to discuss and elaborate Al Maieshah as a possible format able to be replicated, scaled and tailored as a creative process in fieri. This format moves from those relational and visual practices experienced and experimented in Campus in Camps, thus implemented by producing communal performative environments as devices for investigational praxis. The focus is on the person at the center, as a potential or expressed political agent, able to nurture processes of social, cultural and political transformation.
