Inburgering as art - Art as inburgering
Understanding INBURGERING (NL) As the mutual assimilation between legislation and immigrants in the process of naturalization, within the Dutch kingdom, a process that is decided through an admission exam. This process encompasses a general understanding of the culture, its civilization, and the legislative processes.
What do I do?
Translate this legislative formula into an artistic process in the form of an exchange of knowledge of local concepts and techniques from a geographical context that is new to me.
How do I implement it?
In the form of artistic residencies, research, working papers, collaborations, mediations, etc... I have managed to explore 10 years of ‘inburgering’ practice in Venezuela, Aruba, Curaçao, Colombia, Cuba, The Netherlands, the United States, Dominican Republic, and South Korea.
