freedom after speech is a curatorial infrastructure operating by providing an international cultural junction for artistic and cultural activities by writing. It is an attempt to offer an extra disciplinary and critical process with that writing trying to embrace the entanglement of political and artistic realities.
Beyond one specific geography, it instigates, confronts and mobilises cultural practices connected to visual culture ranging from journalism, architecture, economics and artistic practices starting from their conditions but certainly not contained to it. It’s sort of a blog, but hopes to also become a fragmented visual base and operating as an institutional knowledge base departing from contemporary art practices whose interest can contribute to think through complex issues embedded within and surrounding our presence in territorial, social, timely and personal realities.

Note: its title is taken from the 2011 interview Dutch writer Ramsey Nasr had with Aung San Suu Kyi in which she talks about the imaginative moment of freedom ‘after’ speech, instead of advocating merely the freedom ‘of’ speech.
