Lecture Quinsy Gario at Kunsthochschule Kassel

On Thursday 17 December 2020 from 9.30h to 11.30h visual and performance artist Quinsy Gario will give a zoom-lecture for the seminar 'Art Practice and its Significance' within the program Mehrdimensionale Strategien at Kunsthochschule Kassel.

Originally from the Dutch Caribbean, Garios’ artistic practice is concerned with interventions in everyday cultural practices and routines. His best-known work is the campaign 'Zwarte Piet is Racisme', a protest against the black face Pete, the racist element in children's event Sinterklaas. Like no other artist, Gario has been able to have a direct influence on the debates on everyday racism in the Netherlands over the last ten years. 

This campaign and his other art works are connected with the idea of 'Decolonial Remembering', highlighting certain pockets of silence within the colonial past through the lens of justice.

Quinsy Garios' contribution is the third lecture of the seminar 'Art Practice and its Significance', a series of lectures by artists who have special situated experiences of collaborating with different groups outside the institutional art world. This seminar is organised by artists Matthijs de Bruijne and Cecilia Vallejos together with the students of Mehrdimensionale Strategien and hosted by the Kunsthochschule Kassel with the financial support of the Botschaft des Königreichs der Niederlande.

'Art Practice and its Significance' is open to all art students and scholars of the University of Kassel and to other young art practitioners interested in these type of new artistic practices and approaches to art creation.
