#Thanks for being an artist, Janeke Wienk
Thanks for being an artist educator Janeke Wienk. We spend a whole week together in October to read Primo Levi's book 'if this is a man'. We had one whole week together as a group, which she called ‘field’, to read the book ‘if this is a man’ by Primo Levi.

Start of my studies!

For a longer time I wanted to deepen my professional practice, last year I found a Master that was very much up my alley, connecting art with change in society.

#thankyouforbeing an association, Arte Util!
They aim to see Art as a tool, a transformative tool in reality. To use artistic thinking and doing to invent strategies to change the world.

They use the frames of museum(s) and the infrastructure of the art world and their tradtitions and validation mechanism to carve out a place for Arte Util. Gemma Medina and Alle
#Thanks for being an artist, Falk Hubner,
During the text-writing sessions Falk asked us to write a statement about our identity as artist educators, this is mine, noting it is a work in proces; 'The human experience is rich, ever-changing and intricate.
