Finissage: SO DI NON SAPERE

June 15 @ 4:00 pm - 6:30 pm

Did you peek through the windows of De Meldkamer in Maastricht?
Did you already get a glance of the exhibition SO DI NON SAPERE?

Exhibition Finissage
15 JUNE 2024 – 16:00-18:30

Join us for the finissage of SO DI NON SAPERE, an exhibition that questions the limits of our knowledge, on Saturday the 15th of June from 4pm onwards.

Anna Püschel, one of the four artists whose works are featured in the exhibition, will read some extracts from her ‘Encyclopedia of the Unknown’ at 4:30pm, while at 5:30pm Luca van Bakel will present the outcomes of the Writing Residency at De Meldkamer which took place during the exhibition.

As well as asking questions and getting lost in the answers found in Anna Püschel’s ‘Encyclopedia of the Unknown’, you can join a quest to explore the mysterious sculptures by Fedrik Vaessen, look at the fragile letters and items from strangers, part of Gladys Zeevaarders’ project ‘Op de Mat’ and watch the video of Marika Meoli’s performance ‘La Danza senza tempo’, which presents a different way of learning and experiencing though our bodies.

Thanks to the works of these artists, in this exhibition we invite you to get lost, question your knowledge and embrace new ways of learning from others, valuing the knowledge you bring to your own surroundings, acquired through your own body, via non-human entities or thanks to strangers.

In an information-saturated society – where knowledge comes from different mediums, resources, disciplines, fields and perspectives – are we still able to question the limits of what we know?

“The only thing that I know is that I know nothing.”
Socrates
