Radical Cut-Up Muscle and Mind Week: Disruptive Narratives

Stedelijk Museum

8 October - 11 October at Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam
Curated by the the Material Master's Programme Radical Cut-Up at Sandberg Instituut in collaboration with the Stedelijk and Jacuzzi, the Radical Cut-Up Muscle and Mind Week: Disruptive Narratives serves as public kick-off event for the new semester and the cultural season in Amsterdam.

The four-day event is organized in daily physical body-and-mind exercises in the morning at Jacuzzi and theoretical discussions in the afternoon at Stedelijk Museum. Whilst the morning practice sessions focus on the relationship between body, space, and movement, the afternoon lectures invite renown writers, artists, curators, and researchers to share their work and approach with a wider audience. The event’s program is inspired by the Radical Cut-Up approach of reconfiguring, combining and reassembling of pre-existing motifs and fragments, images and ideas from diverse and disconnected origins into novel synthetic entities. With this is mind, the symposium examines the cut-up as the cultural narrative that extends and reinterprets preceding narratives with such prolific figures as Gloria Wekker, Robert Shore, Shumon Basar, Sara Blokland, Bart Van Der Heide, Margriet Schavemaker, Gianluigi Ricuperati Imara Limon and many more. 

The Radical Cut-Up Muscle and Mind Week: Disruptive Narratives is curated and moderated by Lukas Feireiss, director of Radical Cut-Up, and is open to the public and free of entry.
