KABK Research Club - Listening as a Research Method #4
Everyone is warmly invited to attend the fourth and final KABK Research Club of this academic year, with KABK tutor Femke Dekker. The Research Club sessions this year are dedicated to listening as a research method. All session are devoted to sharing research practices that gather around the uses, methods and meanings of listening.
We are happy to share that Femke Dekker, who you might also know as @loma_doom, will be our special guest for this session! Puncuated by sonic clips, Femke will introduce us to her practice and the listening methodologies and tools that shape her research. The gathering will take place in the KABK garden and as it is the final one before the summer break we will close it off with music, sound, noise and drinks.
Femke Dekker ia a Professional Practice tutor at the BA department of Interior Architecture and Furniture Design at the KABK, the Royal Academy of Art in The Hague. With her multi-faceted practice as a contemporary arts curator, moderator, (radio) DJ and broadcaster, Femke Dekker has long been an active member of the cultural scene in the Netherlands and beyond.
As Loma Doom, the moniker for her DJ practice, her signature style revolves around electronic experimentalism, both for mind and movement, seeking the outliers, one that avoids linearity, towards a space where intuition and understanding meet. She currently holds radio residencies at Stranded FM (show: Daydream Nation), Radio Tempo Não Pára (Helter Skelter) and Echobox (Left of the Dial).
The KABK Research Club is an informal forum for tutors, heads, staff, workshop supervisors, PhD candidates and students. Research can take the form of scholarly investigation into art or design as subject matter, or it can be practice-led. Club meetings are organized several times a year and convened by the Design Lector, Dr Alice Twemlow.
