As part of the HCA 2020 program, resident artist Lavinia Xausa organises and hosts a series of events that allows both her audience and the artist to dive deeper into her practice. Spanning an ongoing research trajectory into the relationships between notions of cults and populism, the goal of this project is to further engage with these topics in both theoretical and practical sense.
This conversation event and its connected workshop [link] are an in-depth way to continue research on various forms of expression that are the foundation of Lavinia’s upcoming solo-exhibition at Roodkapje in 2021.

During this event, Lavinia and fellow visual artist Mihai Gui will lead a conversation about national populism, cults and right-wing speeches. Digging up the oddest corners of the Internet, they will share with the audience their fascinations, references, and personal works. While Mihai is particularly fascinated in spotting similarities between right-wing politician’s agendas and speeches, Lavinia aims to investigate the religiousness of these political structures.
The conversation will be open to the audience, and no preparation or specific knowledge is needed to participate, so feel free to join the talk and share your feelings!

The Hamburger Community of Art (HCA) is Roodkapje’s year long residency and development trajectory for young and emerging artists, based on the principles of experimentation, collaboration, and developing new artistic practices. What can artists learn from each other? How can (young) artists stimulate their development collectively? And, how can they find new and intriguing ways to connect to diverse audiences?

The Hamburger Community of Art 2020 is realised with the kind support of de Gemeente Rotterdam, Stichting Ondernemersbelangen Rotterdam, Stichting Bevordering van Volkskrant, Pieter Bastiaan Stichting, Elise Mathilde Fonds, Fleur Groenendijk Foundation, and Prins Bernhard Cultuurfonds
