Research in South Africa

We just returned from Johannesburg and Cape Town, researching for the next Bloch Station in 2017. We had a wonderful time and met so many great and interesting artists, curators, facilitators and open minded people. Thank you so much for your time and friendship – we hope to see you all again in 2017.
Bloch will first appear at the Wood Conference in Cape Town on Feb 28 2017. After some interventions in the Western Cape, we will head north-east to Richmond and Johannesburg, and later to Africa Burn. Stay tuned for some more news, schedule and more.
