VERTICAL PROGRAMME; LECTURES
The horizontal programme of Marres’ exhibitions, is intersected by the vertical programme of lectures and events, curated by Jorinde Seijdel and Brigitte van der Sande. The lectures are scheduled the 1st of the 1st, the 2nd of the 2nd etc. The 6th of the 6th will be present Mariana Castillo Deball. She is invited to talk about her recent project INSTITUTE OF CHANCE.
The INSTITUTE OF CHANCE aims to work within other institutions to find spaces governed by chance. Spaces that gather marginal, ephemeral, useless or unidentified material, countering the encyclopedic ambition to classify everything. By focusing on what seems unimportant or out of place, these spaces are never complete. They can be considered as leftovers of our classifications systems. The INSTITUTE OF CHANCE is interested in spaces that are open to interpretation, fictional spaces. The International Institute of Social History is a documentation centre of different social movements throughout history. Among their collections, they have the largest collection of anarchistic documents in the world. The INSTITUTE OF CHANCE is working with a series of unidentified photographs from it, a section of the archive that escaped any possible classification.
Mariana Castillo Deball (1975, Mexico) was researcher at the Jan van Eyck Academy. This year she won the Prix de Rome in the category Drawing/Graphic art.
The lecture is English spoken. Admission is free. Reservations via info@marres.org .
