Zes gesprekken onder leiding van Andrea van Pol

Wat heeft de maatschappij hier nu aan? Met deze vraag worden kunstenaars en wetenschappers steeds vaker geconfronteerd. Kunsten en wetenschappen hebben in de loop van de afgelopen eeuwen een steeds autonomere positie verworven, maar momenteel lijkt er een kentering gaande. Zo krijgen de wetenschappen de opdracht zich meer te richten op maatschappelijk belangwekkende vraagstukken en van de kunsten wordt gevraagd dat zij hun maatschappelijke relevantie aantonen. Tegelijk valt op dat kunsten en wetenschappen steeds vaker samenwerken.

Belangrijke zaken
Matthijs Rouw

Alleen tijd voor werk, studie en in de auto zitten

"Je begint aan een toekomst met een goed vooruitzicht. Wanneer je door de crisis je baan verliest kom je er vast wel bovenop, en misschien wel beter dan voorheen. Niet wachten op een baan dichter bij, maar gaan voor zekerheid.

Stilstand is daarnaast achteruitgang en de honger naar persoonlijke ontwikkeling is ook nooit gestild, al is het maar omdat studeren gewoon kan. Het gaat allemaal wel ten koste van wat andere zaken, maar je kunt toch niet alles hebben?"

Drieluik voor de tentoonstelling 'Storing', in de vorm van een groot formaat foto aan de wand, een boek en een videoclip. Ieder platform raakt een aspect van mogelijke gevolgen die kunnen ontstaan wanneer men gewillig aan onze maatschappelijke verwachtingen probeert te voldoen.
