A Temporary Archive 2.2, 2000
(archive can be visited free of charge)
De Geuzen: a foundation for multi-visual research was established
to create a forum for critical inquiry, reflection and production.
There are three core initiators, Riek Sijbring, Femke Snelting
and Renée Turner who operate as a collaborative art and design
team making context specific projects which aim to establish
relays between different disciplines and attempt to explore
shifting perspectives with regards to visual culture. Having
a multi-form practice comprised of curation, programming,
collection and visual association, De Geuzen seeks to initiate
situations that act as a catalyst for research and dialogue.
For Manifesta 3, De Geuzen has made the Temporary Archive
where materials addressing issues of border delineation will
be gathered and organised according to selected thematic strands
such as mapping/cartography, nation, culture, identity, gender,
body and economy. Books, magazines, websites and visuals will
continue to be gathered, collated and made available to visitors
for the duration of the exhibition. The Temporary Archive
is intended to be a platform for ongoing research, production,
lingering and exchange.
