As part of Sparwasser HQ's commitment to dialogue on forms of
communication about contemporary art, we invite you to a series
of "Artists' Talks." These talks will present artists'
recent works, with particular emphasis on recent projects, and
projects still in progress.
The aim of the weekly talks is to allow both artists and audience
to exchange directly information, impressions, and feedback,
in a friendly and constructive atmosphere and relaxed environment.
Features of the artists' research will be pointed out and linked
to other projects and experiences.
The invited artists will present and discuss with the audience
the latest developments in their work, given approximately one
hour time. Two artists will speak each week. Throughout the evening,
hands-out from the artists will be available,and we will have
bar service, at discounted prices, so that all can chill out,
relax, and enjoy a beer or a glass of wine!
April 28: Jeroen Offerman, Jean Lee; May 7: Jan
Rothuizen and Sean Reynard;
May 14: Deborah Ligorio, Karen Yasinski; May 21:
Barbara and Jessica;
May 28: Zeigam Azizov and Colonel; continuing over months
- and years.
Every Wednesday night in May and every Tuesday night in June,
July and August 2003, always at 8 pm, we present artists, including
Simon Starling, Heman Chong, Annika Ström, and Laura Bruce.
Artists' CVs and a brief introduction to their works can be found

See you on Wednesdays!
During a 3-4 month period
in Summer 2003, Sparwasser HQ did not show exhibition projects,
but instead, once a week, invited artists to discuss their work
with the audience. Two artists/artist groups were presented each
Sparwasser produced video
documentation of the weekly dialogues. These videos are a useful
tool for curatorial research and for sharing information among
peer artists. The videos will be screened at some upcoming Sparwasser
Documentation of previous
and subsequent dialogues is also included in archive.
The dialogues were held in English.
