[Nettime-nl] Jeanne van Heeswijk lectures at the NAi (Wednesday 19th of April)

'Can we take that serious' on the role that art can play in urban renewal

With her projects visual artist Jeanne van Heeswijk moves between the various levels of inhabitants, designers, but also commissioners. And although people think these projects are interesting, nice and also important, there is always the question 'can we take that seriously'? A question that mainly comes up if the responsibility of the person or organization is at stake.

With this question Van Heeswijk directly touches the role a visual artist can play in the often strongly directed process of urban renewal and revitalization. In her lecture at the Netherlands Architecture Institute she will go into this role by using recent and ongoing projects like 'The Blue House' and 'Face Your World' as a practical example.

Jeanne van Heeswijk (1965) is a visual artist. Her projects distinct themselves through a strong social involvement. Van Heeswijk stimulates and develops cultural production and creates new public (meeting-)spaces or remodel existing ones. She often works closely together with artists, designers, architects, software developers, governments and inhabitants.
