While we’ll close our office and daily operations for summer recess from 20 July to 16 August, we are glad to be able to share with you many stories to accompany your summer reading and listening list – namely the fourth and final chapter of Common Grounds: Story / Heritage called Abraham’s Doolhof (Abraham’s Maze) by curator and writer Laura Herman and writer and dramatist Maarten Mertens; the publication The Never-Ending Story of Commoning a Farmhouse in the Lost Farmlands; and a listening list of keynotes during the 2019 and 2018 editions of our annual Assembly on climate justice and institutional racism in the art world and beyond, respectively.
If you’re in the Netherlands during the holiday period, the Travelling Farm Museum of Forgotten Skills continues its regular tours on ecological farming and local agrarian history every Saturday. And at Casco headquarters, the exhibition This Creaking Floor and All the Ceilings Below, the first chapter of Common Grounds: Story / Heritage, is open to the public, too.
We wish you a recharging and healthy summer filled with art that inspires you.
Please read and find it all via our newsletter.
