Performance with artist Andrew Newman*
November 21, 22 & 23, 17:00
Location: freiraum quartier21 INTERNATIONAL/MQ
In The old in out in out Andrew Newman performs the role of a faceless bureaucrat doing knowledge work. He applies value to blank sheets of paper, stamping them and shuffling them between inboxes and outboxes. It is evident from this action that Newman does nothing useful; a toxic asset, worthy of liquidation.

Lecture with journalist and art critic Josephine Bosma*
November 21, 19:00
Location: freiraum quartier21 INTERNATIONAL/MQ
Living in the flickering spotlights of social media makes us not only vulnerable to the gaze of others, but it also enforces a stark form of self-reflection. In her talk entitled Hiding in Plain Sight she examines how specific tools are an intrinsic part of the way we see and represent ourselves, and how we aid in the construction of our own vulnerability. Examples of the work of various artists show the need and possibility to playfully or critically adapt, subvert or modify everyday media environments.
