Enter/Exit is a lecture around architecture as shelter. In a series of personal notes and associations, Iskra Vukšić juxtaposes the act of withdrawing inside our homes with that of departing. Through anecdotes of her home country and explorations of the material of concrete, she wonders: when do buildings harbour us, and under what conditions are we bound to leave them?

Visit us on Instagram Live on Thursday 10 June at 19:30 for Art History School; Enter/Exit, with a small introduction by artistic director Tirza Kater and an exchange of thought between Iskra and Setareh Noorani & Matt Plezier (SMET) after the lecture. Also, keep an eye on our website and social media for the video publication of the registration of this Art History School -which will be held without an audience.

Iskra Vukšić is a Dutch-Croatian writer and artist with a background in art history and urban cultures and an MFA in Designing Democracy from the Sandberg Instituut. Her written and visual work moves between personal notes and societal observation, with a particular interest in workers, migration and historiography. Her texts were published in Metropolis M and with Public Art Amsterdam and Studio L A. Together with Ekaterina Volkova, she creates immersive installation-performances as the artistic partnership Vukšić&Volkova.
