The first-floor exhibition space is transformed into Casco’s “backstage” – the location of the team’s daily work and archival reorganization. Every Wednesday for four weeks starting 7 October, 17:00–19:00 at Casco Art Institute (Lange Nieuwstraat 7, 3512 PA Utrecht), we invite you to come over and experience our archiving process, as well as a tour of Casco and hear many stories of our vast history. Reservations are required, so please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to join.
For the occasion of Casco’s thirtieth anniversary, over the coming months we are delving into our archives in a process of reorganization, riffling through decades of art and practice, of assemblages by the artist- and community-led collective projects we have presented over the years with great honor and care. By uncoiling the archive together, we aim to shed light on what is considered “past” by taking care of existing or “older” material, re-imagining the notion of an archive that works for the commons. In connection to Common Grounds: Song / Value, this marks a special moment in which we illuminate and contextualize the many musical works from Casco’s archive.
