After celebrating its premiere at Fabulous Future in Amsterdam (NL) on 29 February, we are incredibly excited to share ‘Witches’ online.
As due to the developments around the corona virus all the museums and art organisations presenting The One Minutes Series are closed, we decided to publish our series online for as long as we cannot enjoy art together.
We do this in support of the museums and art organisations that closed their doors and in support of all the artist whose work we want to share with the world!
‘Witches’ is The One Minutes Series of March and April 2020 and consists of 15 works by artists from France, Japan, Mexico, the Netherlands and United States of America exploring the character of the witch.
‘Witches’ collectively explores the subversive character of the witch: marginal, powerful and disruptive, with an unsettling relation to nature. And celebrates the powers of witches, their spell casting, witchcraft’s engagement with unconventional and unrecognized knowledges. While the witch is often presented as evil, we should argue – supported by many feminist writings – that she is unruly, unapologetic, living a life of her own, holding responsibilities towards community and nature – if she even makes the difference between the two. Through her craft she shapes a world she had envisioned and cares for. She is a designer, a maker of change and transformation.
