The Visitor Talks : Sonia Dermience (Komplot) & Arnisa Zeqo (RONGWRONG)

March 2, 2015 from 4:45 pm - 7:00 pm
CCS Bard Seminar Room 1

Sonia Dermience (1971 BE) founded Komplot in Brussels in 2002, a curatorial collective concerned with nomadic creative practices. Under the name of Catherine Vertige, she conducted extensive research into post ’68 collaborative art practices in Belgium with seminars and two documentary films. In 2009 Komplot founded ‘The Public School Brussels’. Since 2010 Komplot is located in a converted warehouse dedicated to exhibitions, residencies and studios. Komplot published three issues of YEAR magazine between 2011 and 2014. Recently, Sonia Dermience re-initiated an individual curatorial practice with TRUST taking place in five kunsthals in Copenhagen and an architecture exhibition of A+ at Bozar Brussels, in 2015.

Arnisa Zeqo is an Amsterdam-based researcher, curator, and co-founder and Director of RONGWRONG, a space for art and theory. She is also currently Curator tutor at Werkplaats Typografie, Arnhem. She has curated and organized exhibitions and programs at Fons Welters Gallery and Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam, Tent in Rotterdam, and Museum De Hallen, Haarlem. She has been a curator tutor at Piet Zwart Institute and a tutor for Rietveld Academy of Art. During her residency, she will research the relationship between art institutes and the presentation of performance art. The Mondriaan Fund provides support for the costs of travel, residency and material via the artist-in-residency grant.

This talk is given as part of the lecture series The Visitor Talks – Dialogues : Similarly Different or More of the Same.
