IBB director Nancy Hoffmann recently gave a lecture about the Dutch Caribbean art scene at the Biennial de Pontevedra (Galicia), Spain. This lecture was titled: “Giant Steps From the Periphery”.

The point that I am trying to make here is that looking at our residency program and the broad spectrum of artists that reside at our institute I see guest artists who just seem to want to connect, produce, reveal, exchange and not want to be pigeonholed by academic or market structures. From the periphery where the structures are based on the goals you want to reach, the view on what art is about seems to be completely stripped from the theoretical grid that the mainstream art world would like to impose on the field.

Pictures and other info about this talk will be added soon.
