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.
