Casco Exhibits: Het is of de stenen spreken (silence is a commons), four solo shows by Babi Badalov, Ansuya Blom, Ama Josephine Budge, and Mire Lee
14 September - 3 November 2019
If together we talk and separately we understand, what might we understand together if we listen to the stones speak? How do we unlearn to speak for the commons and listen to them instead? And how can we protect language commons that are of neither power nor capital?
Het is of de stenen spreken (silence is a commons), featuring four solo shows by Babi Badalov, Ansuya Blom, Ama Josephine Budge and Mire Lee opens on Saturday, 14 September, 12:00 – 18:00, in conjunction with Uitfeest 2019. Uitfeest is the festive opening of Utrecht’s cultural season organized by Culturele Zondagen and takes place at Domplein, just a two minute walk from the exhibitions at Casco Art Institute.
The opening day is punctuated by a series of special artist talks, every hour on the hour, by each of the exhibiting artists, both in the exhibition spaces and at the Casco coffee mobile on Domplein. This mobile will be filled with stories for and by the citizens of Utrecht on languages, translations, and misunderstandings of humans and non-humans alike. More on this mobile and its different outings in Utrecht will be revealed throughout this exhibition season.
