Curator: Lisette Smits
Artist: Chris Evans
In cooperation with the Academie for Visual Arts Maastricht
The first project in the context of The Cell That Doesn’t Believe In The Mind That It’s Part Of is titled Cop Talk.
Only a small proportion of art students realize a career in the arts, while at the same time few artists are likely to pursue a career within the police force. From the idea that a police force should ideally be a reflection of society, and the observation that people from the art world are underrepresented within that force, Evans invites representatives from national police forces across the world to give recruitment presentations at art academies. After a dozen of such talks in Europe, the US and Asia, students of the Art Academy in Maastricht were invited to a Cop Talk in May 2010.
