In response to the new publication on the Research & Development scheme, CBK Rotterdam is organizing a discussion afternoon about the role of the visual artist today. Under the direction of Nicole Sciarone, artists Josephine Baan, Manetta Berends, Ine Lamers, Gerwin Luijendijk and Tim Leyendekker will discuss the way in which they determine their position and context. Do they present themselves as campaigners or as an image-maker, as a historian or as a technologist?
