Lezing:
Gavin Wade, Eastside Projects

"We bouwen al tien jaar aan een kunstwerk."

"Wij werken via kunst - kunst als een essentiële menselijke taak."

"Wij willen nieuw leven."

"In de afgelopen tien jaar hebben we de opkomst gezien van een meer autoritaire samenleving. We zullen dit nooit accepteren."

"Geef bestaande structuren opnieuw vorm, als een manier om te overleven in een kapitalistische economie."

"Renoveer bestaande structuren, als een manier om te overleven in een kapitalistische economie."

Gavin Wade is een kunstenaar-curator, directeur van Eastside Projects - een ‘artist run multiverse’ in Birmingham, VK - en Senior Research Fellow binnen de School of art van Birmingham City University. Zijn recente boek 'Upcycle This Book' (2017) werd uitgegeven door Book Works en Stroom Den Haag en brengt teksten bijeen van de afgelopen 12 jaar, over het maken van kunst en over cureren als kunstenaar. Lopende projecten zijn ‘This is the Gallery and the Gallery is Many Things X’ in het vernieuwde Eastside Projects; 'Park Life', een tentoonstellingsproject voor kunst in de openbare ruimte in Banbury; en 'Station Clock' door Susan Philipsz (het 2 miljoen pond kostende Birmingham Big Art Project voor 2026 met HS2, de nieuwe hogesnelheidslijn); zijn doorlopende 'A-Z Display Units (After Kiesler & Krischanitz)' (2015-); en zijn doorlopende publicatieproject ‘Strategic Questions’ (2002-).
