CAUCUS November - December 2007
The CAUCUS starts from the principle that art proceeds from a discursive
and critical culture. It seeks, in the context of art educational
practices, to stimulate and transform. Thinkers and artists from all over
the world will come to Eindhoven to inspire the future, and act as
interlocutors for a group of local people and international students.
Contributors include abroad range of critical theorists such as Rosi
Braidotti, Homi K. Bhabha, Galit Eilat, Boris Groys, Dieter Lesage,
Chantal Mouffe, Nikos Papastergiadis, Paul Sniderman, Paul Scheffer,
Shepherd Steiner, Gayatri Chakravorty Spivak, Gerard Raunig and inspiring
artists writers and cultural producers such as Yael Bartana, Abdelkader
Benali, Igor Dobricic, Tone O. Neilsen, Sarah Pierce, Bik Van der Pol,
Renee Ridgeway, Artur Zmijewski and many others. For the completed
programme check for updates on the website http://www.becomingdutch.com
The CAUCUS is developed by Charles Esche, Annie Fletcher and Esra
Sarigedik as
 part of the two year project Be[com]ing Dutch by the Van Abbemuseum and

Be[com]ing Dutch aims to open up an exploratory debate which puts our
ideas of national identity at risk and examines and challenges the
processes of inclusion and exclusion today. As questions of cultural
identity and normative 'national' values become ever more of an issue in
political and cultural debate, the concept behind Be [com]ing Dutch is to
move the agenda on from notions of toleration and difference towards
building a shared but agonistic democracy on the cultural level through
the use of one of the few remaining public sphere institutions left to us
-- the museum. The CAUCUS will attempt to look at the meaning of and
context for a global visual culture right here (Eindhoven) and right now
(2006-8). The four week intensive meeting will offer a programme
comprising of a lecture series, publications, screenings, performances,
collective production, radio programmes, workshops and other activities.
Central paradoxes of the CAUCUS include:

B  The revival of nationalism versus the reality of globalisation and
migration. How can art imagine a way out of this dichotomy?
B  The re-emergence of religion as the dominant cultural identifier versus
the secular globalisation of capital. How can art imagine identity
differently today?
B  The autonomy of art versus its use (critically, economically and socially)
B  How can a museum effect change in a provincial city (Eindhoven).
B  Can art change politics, does politics determine art?

Application closes on 15 September 2007. In order to submit your
