ADA Rotterdam - Area for Debate and Art


Due to unexpected circumstances tomorrows performance with Katarina Zdjelar and Jan Verwoert is canceled. We’re very sorry to notify you on such a short notice.

P for Performance is pleased to announce as its thirteenth performative event:

Deserters’ Heartland, a performance by Katarina Zdjelar and Jan Verwoert

Katarina Zdjelar (Belgrade, 1979) is an artist based in Rotterdam. Her practice consists of making video, sound and text pieces, performances, book projects and creating different platforms for speculation, knowledge building and exchange. Her work explores notions of identity, authority and community and revolve around individuals who challenged by simultaneous inhabitation of different languages, perform themselves through practicing, remembering or reinventing themselves.

Jan Verwoert is a Berlin based, internationally renowned art critic and sometimes curator. He is a member of the advisory board of the Munich Kunstverein and has been a guest professor of Contemporary Art and Theory at the Academy of Umeå, Sweden, and the Royal College of Art, London. Since 2005 he has been a tutor and leader of the Imagined Communities seminar at the Piet Zwart Institute, Rotterdam. Verwoert is a contributing editor to Frieze magazine and also writes regularly about contemporary art for Afterall, Metropolis M, Springerin, and artists’ catalogues.

P for Performance is part of an ongoing project by Maja Bekan, entitled Secret Powers for Identity, Security and Self-respect in Troubling Times.
The aim of these performance events is to try to critically engage with the investigation of the artist’s role as a producer and advertiser.
