During this event, we will be in conversation with Sasha Dees about her research in the Caribbean. We will reflect on the importance of the conversations she had with many different people in the region about contemporary art. We will think, listen and talk together about what it might mean to present this work and these conversations in the Dutch context.

About the book
Entangled Species, Conversations on Contemporary Art in the Caribbean (2021) is the result of a fifteen-month research project by Sasha Dees, mapping out the available infrastructure for Contemporary Art in the Caribbean. She has visited sixteen countries in the Caribbean such as Haiti, Curacao, the Dominican Republic, the Virgin Islands, Barbados and many more. During this period, she interviewed over 800 artists and art professionals, resulting in 3000 hours of recordings. For this publication, she selected quotes from the transcripts of the interviews that reflected issues relevant to her, with the goal of encouraging a continuous discourse.

A sort of Lonely Planet for Contemporary Art in the Caribbean, the publication mixes a travel book and toolkit. As she travels and engages with artists, Dees reflects on her own path to a career in the arts — what she did, what she wondered about, and who she met — giving the reader a sense of who she is and why she is a reliable voice on the subject. The many anecdotes and conversations with artists and art professionals included in the book are engaging and draw us into her journey.
