  • Just a question of mapping tour to Norway
    1 March 2020 |
    Currently I am on a tour to Norway, as part of my book project “Just a question of mapping”. I’m traveling by train, so I also made stops in Aabenraa (visiting Nina Essendrop) and Copenhagen, and will make a stop also in Malmö. Details of the full tour are on the book project site, and I am also making blog posts there on the progress, both of the tour and of the book research and writing. And it seems out of the work on the book, at least one new performance will evolve: a lecture performance on mapping. At the Faculty of Senses presentation in Copenhagen I performed a first version of this, and it’s likely that this will evolve further.
  • Article on Fair Practice at PlatformBK
    12 January 2020 |
    Over the past years a Fair Practice Code has been developed in the arts sector in the Netherlands, after realising the precarious situation of artists - both financially and in terms of power of negotiation. For the upcoming round of four year funding for institutions, adherence to this code is one of the requirements to get funding. But looking in detail at how a city like Den Haag includes questions about the Fair Practice Code there is still reason to be concerned. In reaction, I wrote the article “Als Fair Practice Code het antwoord is, wilt u dan de vraag nog eens herhalen?” (if fair practice code is the answer, could you repeat the question perhaps?). An English translation will follow later in the month.
  • Tinnitus highlighted by IMPAKT
    19 December 2019 | body, sound, collaboration, composition
    IMPAKT highlighted an old piece I made in 2011, for the Inclusive Extensions - shifting borders by design project. Tinnitus: A work by Marije Baalman and Mariagiovanna Nuzzi When it comes to hearing disabilities, Tinnitus might be one of the most common. In the Netherlands alone, an estimated 2 million people suffer from Tinnitus. It is a form of hearing damage, in which you continuously experience sound, even when there is no external sound. Tinnitus has many different causes, but the most common cause is (over)exposure to loud noise.
