Mustafa Sener

is an Amsterdam based artist with a Turkish background

His work is clearly inspired by the cradle of Eastern and Western culture.

Susan Kooi

travels to Italy, Portugal and Japan to work with different traditions of ceramic crafts

She seeks proof of use and the meaning of the object, both real and fictional during its lifetime and in the future.

Mels Dees and Mariëlle van den Bergh

share that interest and travel around the world

The experiences they gain from this are reflected in their work: sculptures, tapestries, photographs and paintings.
Mariëlle is currently working as artist-in-residence at the EKWC, European Ceramic Workcentre in Oisterwijk.

In this workshop, accompanied by visual artists Mustafa Sener and Susan Kooi, we take on the challenge to imagine what people make in the future. We will clay our only collection of archeofuturistic sculptures, with DAS self-supporting clay, so that everyone can take his or her sculpture with them.

This creates an accessible opportunity to get in touch with the artist in question.
After each workshop, a guided tour of FUTUREARCHEOLOGY and a tasting of healthy homemade pizzas will be offered.

Breed Art is a contemporary art foundation devoted to an intense cultural activity of exhibitions and events programming focused on the presentation of prominent Dutch and international artists who stand out for their commitment to research, originality of expressive media and innovative attitude towards artistic production, installation and performance.
