Florette Dijkstra

An impossible lecture on silence

A lecture is almost always about a subject, but in this lecture, the word ‘silence’ remains a word like any other. Florette Dijkstra tells us about the difference between written and spoken words, about the lectures of Gertrude Stein, Michel Foucault andJohn Cage, and about the influence of Aspasia on Socrates. She finishes with a live concert registration. Florette Dijkstra is an artist and a writer. Art and art history are always the subject of her work. De Ketelfactory published twenty of her written works in Oerstof. In October 2019, Rumoer is due to appear, a book about the beginning of art (IJzer Publishers).
