Art & Reciprocity is a workshop proposed and led by Erik Hagoort, a hands-on workshop to explore reciprocity in social art practice. The aim is to develop a sensibility for the dynamics of reciprocity, in three sessions: Theory > Practice > Play

- What is reciprocity? How does it work? What are its dynamics?
- Why does reciprocity appeal so much to contemporary artists?
- Do social art practices indeed hold the promise of reciprocity?
- Do social art practices also question, criticize, or contest reciprocity? And if so, how?

Erik Hagoort (born in 1962, based in the Netherlands) is a theorist, curator and tutor at the master fine art course of the Academy of Art and Design St. Joost in Den Bosch/ Breda, the Netherlands.

The two-year master programme Fine Arts at AKV | St.Joost supports artists in their ambition to deepen and strengthen their practice. The programme provides students with an enhanced foundation for a lifelong career as an artist.
