"The invention of the ship was also the invention of the shipwreck." (Paul Virilio)
APOGEE is the place in the universe that is the most distant to the earth and is a mathematical quantity and allegory for absolute seclusion. In March 2010, nüans was located in three different time zones. Thus the search of ideas and material for a book project started. Further relocations followed and with each city we hit upon further ideas, people and contributions. Within the following year we presented at different locations a preview of the book, which was still growing even in the final stages of completion. Gradually, an expansive archipelago has developed. Finally APOGEE gathers contributions of 80 artists and authors dealing with the topics of isolation, islands and fluctuation.

‘Mutualisms’ is a collaborative curatorial project organized by Lise Haller Baggesen and Kirsten Leenaars, exploring the ways in which networks of friendship and artistic collaboration can be used as a model for curating. ‘Mutualisms’ is looking into artistic strategies for finding hospitality and exchange in the context of contemporary art practices as well our own social domain.
Eight Dutch and eight American artists/artist duos were paired and worked together to create a collaborative presentation of their works. Iris Kensmil & Carol Jackson, Rune Peitersen & Mark Jeffery & Judd Morrissey, Marjolijn Dijkman & Lora Lode/Kevin Kaempf, Jonas Ohlsson & Selina Trepp, Magnus Monfeldt & Harold Mendez, Maurice Bogaert & Trevor Gainer, Caroline Stikker/Philippine Hoegen & Aron Gent and Saskia Janssen/George Korsmit & Adelheid Mers.
