MERIAN organises Q&A after screening ‘Alreadymade’ at Lumière, April 3

Lumière screening of the documentary film ‘Alreadymade’ (In Dutch with English subtitles), followed by a Q&A with director Barbara Visser organised by MERIAN, the Maastricht Experimental Research in and through the Arts Network   Wednesday 3 April, 19.30 hrs. 
Lumière Maastricht, Bassin 88, Maastricht Book a ticket: https://lumiere.nl/events/alreadymade-q-a-regisseur

‘Alreadymade’ (2023) is a hybrid feature documentary about the controversy surrounding ‘Fountain’ (1917), ’the most influential artwork of the 20th century’. Was it marketing, mystification or misogyny that caused the rise of the artwork Fountain? This film is an alternative whodunnit, in which everyone – artists, art historians and ultimately the director herself – turns out to be a puppet in the powerplay of the art market.

After the screening, director Barbara Visser will be present for a Q&A session, organised in collaboration with MERIAN, the Maastricht Experimental Research in and through the Arts Network. MERIAN is a platform to foster collaboration between artists and academic researchers established by Maastricht University, University College Maastricht, the Jan van Eyck Academy and Zuyd University of Applied Sciences /the research centre ‘What Art Knows’. The panel will include contributions by Antye Guenther (Jan van Eyck, UM), Floray Lysen (UM), Christoph Rausch (UCM) and Ulrike Scholtes (Zuyd).
