The fragmented exhibition and research platform Lacuna Sovereignty is launching its first event at the Gerrit Rietveld Academie on April 10.
The project zeros in on nationalism and the role of the nation state within an increasingly globalized corporate world, examining zones where the lines of national sovereignty are blurred, or simply do not exist—places like special economic zones, economic processing zones, airports, international waters, military bases, and, of course, online spaces and their physical counterparts.
Tonight’s event brings a conversation between American artist Kari Altmann, London-based artist Anne de Boer, and Cory Scozzari, curator, artist and founding member of London’s Jupiter Woods exhibition space.
The three are working to develop site-specific projects that intervene on the places their work addresses, and the conversation will explore their recent work and upcoming contributions to Lacuna Sovereignty.
