artist talk with Kitty Maria

Kitty Maria’s work consists of video performances and installations, as an ongoing investigation of the automated production site and the new labourer. In the work, she often forges friendships with companies or shops to make an intervention in places of labour or to subject herself to the production process.


Her work has been shown at a.o. Palais de Tokyo (Paris, FR), International Design Biennial (St. Etienne, FR), Museum für Kunst & Gewerbe (Hamburg, DE), De Appel (Amsterdam, NL), TAC (Eindhoven, NL), Het Resort (Groningen, NL), Macao (Milan, IT), Het Nieuwe Instituut (Rotterdam, NL), Am Ende Des Tages (Düsseldorf, DE) and Combo (Venice, IT).

MAY 8 '24 – Müge Yilmaz on feminist science fiction to envision potential futures – in collaboration with University of Groningen / Art History

cultivating feminist fictions for protection

May 19 '24 – a recap of the artist talk by Andrea Romero

(...) Müge believes that reading feminist science-fiction is not only about reading.

material alchemy

Nov 14 '23 – a recap of the artist talk by Violeta Gamino Romero

"on the evening of the 8th of November, the voids and fillings of Hilde Onis occupied the spaces of het resort, both mentally and physically through a conversation with Klaudija Ylaite, our guide through the exchange of ideas in this new series studium resort.
