DEPEND ON ME
AMATEURS AND PROFESSIONALS
COLLABORATIVE RESEARCH PILOT BY
MARIEKE ZWART
START MARCH 2021

(OPEN CALL CLOSED)

In spring 2021 I started a collaborative research project DEPEND ON ME that facilitates artistic collaborations between five professional artists and five amateur artists in Amsterdam. DEPEND ON ME is an experimental project that questions dependencies, authenticity and authorship in an engaged art context.

With our research group we will set up a new program with workshops, presentations, studio visits and excursions in Amsterdam. Main question: How can we collaborate as amateur and professional artist, being mutually dependant and inspired by each other. In september we will present 5 new artworks in public space and publish our experiences and research material in an online publication.

Collaborating with: Rijksakademie, Elke Uitenhuis, Esther Vossen (Beeldend Gesproken, Het Vijfde Seizoen)
