The conversations with Ruchama are meant for anyone who has a special interest in how materials and tokens relate to our bodies and nature, and the secondary effect of emotions on human behaviour.
During the meetup, you take a 30-minute walk with Ruchama while discussing your work, ideas, and challenges. You can expect an honest talk filled with (unwanted) advice and original ideas.
About the artist
Ruchama Noorda is an artist who uses diverse media and materials in performances and installations. In 2002, Noorda graduated from the Royal Academy of Art in The Hague and she completed her MFA at the Sandberg Institute in Amsterdam in 2004. She received a PhD degree from the University of Leiden, where she researched the early 20th-century Lebensreform (Life Reform) movement. In her practice, Noorda recycles elements of Reform pedagogy, arts, crafts, dance, diet, and ritual practices.
Meet a Maker
Especially in these times where contact is limited we think it is important to stimulate the exchange of artistic views and ideas. We therefore host corona-proof meetings with the artists that show or make work at Mediamatic, so you can come to discuss your project and get some new inspiration, a fresh view on your work or an interesting conversation about it.
The meet-up is free, but please RSVP to book your time slot.
You can choose a time between 14:00 and 16:45
In case you have any questions, you can send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
