Sarah Vanhee – Bodies of Knowledge – the public space as a forum for the exchange of repressed or underexposed knowledge
BOK (bodies of knowledge) investigates how public space can be activated through artistic intervention in order to transfer non-dominant (forms of) knowledge.
How can you create a safe space within the public space for the exchange of different forms of repressed knowledge? What are artistic and political strategies to reverse the knowledge / power relations within the public domain? Which forms of performative knowledge transfer contribute to a more equal, emancipated society?
The aim of this project is to investigate existing initiatives concerning non-dominant knowledge transfer, which are therefore independent of the white patriarchal structures. In addition, this research aims to create a “space of appearance” for a pluralistic exchange of knowledge. Understanding knowledge as art and knowledge transfer as a performative act. Finally, a search is being made for a place for verbal knowledge transfer.
