Henk Slager

Chief Curator, together with Zhang Qing

Research and visual art have been the focus of many activities developed by Henk Slager over the last ten years. As professor of artistic research he has made significant contributions to the debate on the role of research in visual art and as Dean of the Utrecht Graduate School of Visual Art and Design (MaHKU) he has contributed to the launching of productions such as the yearly Dutch Artistic Research Event (DARE) and the publication of the biannual MaHKUzine, Journal of Artistic Research.

Departing from a similar focus on research, he has also (co-) produced various curatorial projects, a.o. Flash Cube (Leeum, Seoul, 2007), Translocalmotion (7th Shanghai Biennale 2008), Nameless Science (Apex Art, New York, 2009), As the Academy Turns (Collaborative project Manifesta, 2010), Tamara Kvesitadze: Any-medium-whatever (Georgian Pavilion, Venice Biennale, 2011), TAR – Temporary Autonomous Research (Amsterdam Pavilion, Shanghai Biennale 2012), Doing Research (dOCUMENTA 13, 2012), Offside Effect (1st Tbilisi Triennial, 2012), Joyful Wisdom (Parallel Project, Istanbul Biennial, 2013), Modernity 3.0 (80 WSE Gallery NYU New York, 2014), Aesthetic Jam (Parallel Project Taipei Biennial) and Experimentality (1st Research Pavilion, Venice Biennale, 2015).
