Katinka de Jonge
My practice evolves around the relation between concepts and design, versus the daily experience and usage of (public, institutional) space.
I investigate the underlying structures and forces of organizational models and their influence on artistic practice. Through collaboration and a humorous perspective, I question the current role of the artist in the arts field, public space and in relation to activism.
During this residency, I will examine the organization itself based on the (written and/or oral) archive. I want to find a way of opening the archive by interviewing different players that are involved in Lugar a Dudas. Within the investigation the format of the interview is questioned and opened up; resulting in a Juego a Dudas (a game of Doubts). Hereby I relate to an earlier work I made during an internship at the 14th Biennial of Saõ Paulo (BR).
