Dutch Art Institute: lecture Spaces Between Servitude and Statement - February2004

1,432 views

Published on

In February 2004 I presented a lecture for the Dutch Art Institute (DAI) in Enschede, The lecture focuses on several theories of shelter in an increasingly complex urban environment. The lecture is titled "Spaces Between Servitude and Statement"
It indirectly pointe towards DAI's prospect to be relocated elsewhere in Enschede.
The Dutch Art Institute is a postgraduate art institute that, in 2004, claimed an abandoned industrial building in Roombeek, a neighborhood that was heavily hit in 2000 by an enormous explosion caused by a fireworks factory located there. Basically the lecture addresses on a theoretical level, the necessity of providing art students with an optimal working environment that should be located right in the heart of an urban community. These working conditions not only should be utilitarian, but first and foremost should provide staff and students with a an optimal creative and evocative envirionment.

  5. 5. On Monday, October 12, 1654, shortly after half past eleven in the morning, one of Delft's powder magazines exploded and devastated a large part of the city. The “Delftsche Donderslag” was said to have been heard as far away as the island of Texel, seventy miles north of Delft. When the magazine exploded, it contained about ninety thousand pounds of gunpowder. The force of the blast was so great that most houses in the immediate vicinity were destroyed and buildings throughout the city were damaged. The two major churches, the Oude and the Nieuwe Kerk, were also damaged. Although the number of people killed is not known, it has been estimated that deaths were in the hundreds. Among the casualties was one of Delft's most famous painters, Carel Fabritius.
