On April 25, I talked at The Hmm about calm places on the internet, titled ‘about: blank’. Do you remember the legendary both welcoming and useless website Zombo.com? I showed the silent works of artists as Ingrid Burrington, Jonathan Harris and Julia Weist. And examples of ASMR videos*, for instance by Lisa Gliederpuppe.
The Sonic Acts Critical Writing Workshop focuses on specific aspects – language, style, and focus – of writing as a craft. Following the editions in 2016 and 2017, the writing team is led by writer and researcher Jennifer Lucy Allan and me. Read the closing notes of the 2017 edition: Anyway, everything is on fire

As We Read is a website with a growing collection of reading lists about art and design, ranging from essays to graphic novels, and from lecture transcripts to manifestos. I contributed with a reading list of books in the library of Het Nieuwe Instituut that deal with the ever-expanding universe of materials.
The exhibition Souvenirs. De dingen en de verhalen at Felix Meritis presented an assembly of objects and the stories of their owners. The photography by Sophie Wright was presented as a new collection of souvenirs in the exhibition. Curated with Tessel Dekker, co-founder of Gevonden Voorwerpen.
Following FIBER Festival‘s theme exploring the Subterranean, I wrote an article for Simulacrum about the artists that help us navigate in the algorithmic and digital landscapes underneath the surfaces of our screens.
