This group exhibition considers time as a circulation: finitude as a potential redistribution of value, seeing ruins as forms of emergence, and delving into one's being-in-the-world as a manifold story that is entangled with the being of this earth. When disappearing we are also appearing elsewhere. The News will begin to resemble the Moon cycle as catastrophe accelerates. Tomorrow is only a blueprint. The Ant told the Spider: 'That's why I say that the individual act-ant is not an agent. Rather, agency – that is, what makes things happen – is distributed throughout the network.' (Tim Ingold) Tomorrow, I May Disappear considers collectivity in Art as a worthy chance operation amidst a horizon of unpredictability.

Publication: To mark the exhibition Tomorrow, I May Disappear, MaHKU launches a publication containing contributions by the participating artists, as well as situating reflections by Natasha Ginwala, Henk Slager, Tiong Ang and Maria Hlavajova. Design: Dongyoung Lee.

Prior to the opening of the exhibition Call for Drawings at BAK, a symposium will be held to discuss and evaluate the outcomes of this interdisciplinary project. The symposium focuses on the meaning of drawings for various forms of knowledge production. How do drawings relate to visual thinking? What role do they play in creative and cognitive processes? And what is the significance of drawings when solving problems and communicating possible solutions?

Contributions by Klaas Hoek (Project Curator), Mel Gooding (Keynote), Deanne Petherbridge, Christel Vesters, Vincent Icke, Joke Robaard, Ansuya Blom, Falke Pisano, Kitty Zijlmans and Natasha Ginwala.

Prospects: Before You Ask Me to Stay shows the documentation of a one-week event conducted by the MaHKU Fine Art program in the context of the 56th Venice Biennale. In this week, May 10-17, nine MaHKU students 'occupied' the First Research Pavilion (Sala del Camino, Giudecca) with multiple strategies. Individual and collaborative interventions took place that engaged with various modes of experimentation. The space was used as a research area that explored concepts of performativity, interactivity, mobility, collaboration, studies and trials. This spatial inscription allowed for projects that stem from each individual practice, but also enabled joint and mutual observations. The main incentive here was finding alternative means of expression with regard to the prospects of a developing research practice.
