Presentation member edition 2018: Kelly Schacht
Every year KIOSK invites an artist to create a member edition, with this year's edition being by Kelly Schacht. The edition will be presented on April 22, during KASK / School of Arts' open house, from 10AM - 5PM.
The edition It seems economical to make use of a character already in play refers to the scenario Kelly Schacht drafted for her eponymous exhibition in 2013 in KIOSK. As in an unfolding minimal scenography, walk-on actors engage in a dialogue with each other, a series of objects, the space and its visitors. This object (or utensil) depicts a specific encounter between a walk-on actor and a prop, and a father and his daughter while visiting the exhibition.
Kelly Schacht (°1983, Roeselare, Belgium) currently resides in Ghent. In 2013, KIOSK hosted her exhibition It seems economical to make use of a character already in play.
If you would like to support KIOSK, you can become a member of KIOSK for as little as €50! As part of your one-year membership, you will receive among others the 2018 artist edition by Kelly Schacht.

#SMYA Chapter 5: Speak Up/Make Your Way - Amandine Gay
#SMYA Chapter 4: A Short History of the Future, by Kapwani Kiwanga
Kapwani Kiwanga, one of the participating artists in 'Show Me Your Archive and I Will Tell You Who is in Power', will bring her lecture performance 'Afrogalactica II: The Black Star Chronicles'. In a performance with live reading and video projection, Kiwanga takes on the role of a fictional anthropologist. In this role, she speculates about the future and researches Afrofuturism as a tool to look at the past from an African or African diasporic perspective. Kiwanga toys with the voice of authority. By using humor, she tries to disrupt hegemonic narratives and give voice to fictional stories. Kapwani Kiwanga (1978, Ontario, CA) lives and works in Oaris (FR). She studied anthropology and comparative religious studies at McGill University (Montréal, CA). In her work, she struggles with Afrofuturism, anti-colonialism, collective memory, belief systems and ways in which different cultures approach the supernatural.
#SMYA Chapter 3: On Cahiers du Grif - lecture by Mara Montanaro
For the third chapter of ‘Show Me Your Archive and I Will Tell You Who is in Power’, Mara Montanaro will give a lecture on the journal ‘Cahiers du Grif’. These Cahiers du ‘Groupe de Recherche et d’Information Féministes’ was the first and most influential French-language feminist journal. In 1973 it was co-founded by Belgian writer, philosopher and feminist Françoise Collin. The first cahier, titled ‘Le feminisme, pour quoi faire?’ (1973), questioned the young feminist movement and introduced an element of reflection in Belgian second-wave feminism, that up to then mostly consisted of manifestations (like the Dolle Minas). The editorial office, that comprised of only females, moved from Paris to Brussels in 1982. Mara Montanaro is Doctor of Philosophy associated with LEGS (Laboratoire d’études de genre et sexualités), Université Paris 8. Her main research interests are contemporary French philosophy, feminist theories and gender and postcolonial studies. Please note that this event will be in French.

New KIOSK artist edition by Zoe Beloff!
You can become a member of KIOSK for as little as €50! As part of your one-year membership, you will receive among others this 2017 artist edition by Zoe Beloff, titled Ha! Ha! Ha! - after Dave Fleischer. The work is part of a series on what the artist describes as ‘taxonomies of emotions’. It starts from the idea that the ever-growing amount of data about our lives that is stored online might one day soon take on monstrous and pseudo-human qualities; or, as American IT company IBM puts it: ‘Welcome to the Cognitive Era’.
