Event Description

Snejanka Mihaylova (BG/NDL)
Practical training in thinking. In dialogue with Gertjan Van Gennip

Practical Training in Thinking whisks us away into a realm of thought centred on the friction between abstract and concrete and possible and real. Can we get to grips with abstract thoughts if we imagine that they take place in a person, in his head or soul? This talk cum performance looks at how the world is constantly being created through thought. Mihaylova’s hypothesis challenges us to take part, to ask questions and share experiences, if only in thought. 

Snejanka Mihaylova worked as a researcher for the Jan Van Eyck Academie in Maastricht. In October she will present a version of Practical Training in Thinking at the Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam. 

With the support of the Mondriaan Fonds 

Performance afternoonAs part of her solo exhibition Yael Davids put together an afternoon programme of three performances: Inging by Jeanine Durning, Obliterating An Image by Yael Davids & André Van Bergen and Practical Training In Thinking by Snejanka Mihaylova.
