On Pursuing Personal and Productive Engagement

01/03/2018 van 19:00 tot 21:00

Campus Sint Lucas, St Jozefstraat 35, 2018 Antwerpen

St Lucas School of Arts (Antwerp) is organising a series of public lectures around the topic ‘Why Work?’. Speakers from various disciplines are invited to elaborate on their practice, and engage with MA students from St Lucas in a preceding workshop. What is the motivation and structure underpinning their work? How to remain critical? What happened to the promise of leisure—as Liam Gillick put it in his eponymous essay—and what is the importance of doing nothing? And last but not least, how do these speakers consider their position as cultural workers?

FREEK LOMME

On Pursuing Personal and Productive Engagement

Freek Lomme is a mediator, debater, lecturer and catalyst in cultural positions. He is an (in)dependent curator, writer of both experimental and reflective texts, editor, lecturer and moderator for diverse commissioners ranging from museums to independent spaces and such, different art schools in different countries and continents, various magazines and more, as well as board member to unions of independent art spaces or curatorial organisation on both local, national as international level. Nevertheless, he is primarily known as founding director of exhibition space and publisher Onomatopee, which he founded in 2006.

He studied arts and science at the University Maastricht, holds an MA in art policy and cultural identity. He is particularly interested in visual culture within the experience economy, modes of collaboration and organisation. As a mediator, Lomme specializes in thematic projects that inform the audience on the literacy of the visual and simultaneously activate a visual culture within the experience economy. At times more political, at times more poetic, he accommodates and facilitates critically empowered connectivity.

Inspired by progressive cultural practices, signalising trends within these and having the sum resonating within broader cultural scope, he is a host, forerunner, inspirer and node exploring and structuring present culture both in theory and discourse by mediating real exchange on site. His personal motto in life, to conceptualise cultural wonder, mirrors itself within the produced public settings wherein people relate their wonder within the narrated structures on the subjects and challenges he set’s out for with determination and generosity.
