I will be a guest in LIAP (Leipzig International Art Programme) from 24 September to 7 November 2020. LIAP is a non-profit residency program that fosters international artists by providing spacious studios and access to the culture and art scene in Leipzig. I will participate in studio visits, and I will work there with artist Michelle Eistrup, (Denmark/Jamaica) one of five artists in residency this autumn. Eistrup is a visual artist who works primarily in video and photography, her practice is deeply rooted in the decolonial discourse.
While I am in Leipzig I will be writing a series of articles about LIA, artist studio visits, and exhibitions in the Spinnerei and the Saxon area at large. They can be read (in Dutch) in the E-zine Trendbeheer. I continue to work on the publication on Contemporary Art in the Caribbean based on the research done on 14 islands from November 2017 till May 2019 in part made possible by Mondriaanfonds. Director LIAP will have a public conversation on my research of the Caribbean with me during the Rundgang in the Spinnerei on Saturday 26 September at 11.30 a.m.
The LIAP residencies are made possible by Goethe Institute (Eistrup), the National Arts Council in Denmark (Eistrup), and Mondriaanfonds (Sasha partly using COVID stipend granted as of October 1, 2020, to continue work on the above-mentioned Publication, postponed due to canceled residencies in the Caribbean in spring 2020).
