WORKSHOP: Corresponding Racial Identity

Visit Maud and Robert-Jonathan as they read aloud their correspondence, unpacking how their identities have played a pivotal part in their work, and how they navigate through the world as artists. Using their letters as a tool to address their creative and personal journey, the audience may collectively move through a space as they are asked to rethink their constantly shifting identities. By critically examining their artistic choices and going back and forth about how their identities have influenced the way they make as well as approach work, a dialogue is created where you are invited to look for the differences, or perhaps more interestingly, similarities.

This event is presented as part of Studium Witte de With’s Parallel Curriculum student-led program. For Workshop: Corresponding Racial Identity, Parallel Curriculum participant Maud Berden started a collaboration with multidisciplinary artist and storyteller Robert-Jonathan Koeyers.

About Parallel Curriculum

Studium Witte de With’s Parallel Curriculum is a peer-led education initiative by Witte de With Center for Contemporary Art. Each year, a select group of students collaborate across academic and creative disciplines to bridge different fields of knowledge in higher education, culminating the programming of student-led events.

The Class of ’19 includes: Maud Berden (Piet Zwart Institute), Rosa Elk (Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam), Sander Hintzen (Stockholms Universitet), Jasmijn van der Linden (RASL Double Degree), Salvador Miranda (Piet Zwart Institute), and Adam Patterson (Piet Zwart Institute). Workshop: Corresponding Racial Identity is led by Maud Berden.

This is the second of two events organized by the students of Parallel Curriculum on the same day, see: Mircofund Dinner for the evening program.
