CASCO, Office for Art, Design and Theory, in Utrecht, the Netherlands, is
known internationally as a platform for experimental art and design. The
projects produced over the past few years include: 'First Woman on the
Moon' by Aleksandra Mir, 'Funky Baskenland' by Asier Perez Gonzáaez, 'Make
Over' by Otto Berchem and 'Killer Queen' by L.A. Raeven. In the past, Casco
has cooperated with an international selection of artists such as Hinrich
Sachs, Matthieu Laurette, N55, Apolonija Sustersic, Luke Fowler, Jens
Haaning and Bik Van der Pol.
Casco publishes Casco Issues a magazine on subjects as 'Real Experiments',
'Democratic Design' and 'Multiplicity', and publications such as the book
'Kelly 1:1, a cover version by Experimental Jetset' and the CD 'A dead
sentence here and abroad' by Bernadette Corporation.
It is Casco's ambition to employ art alongside design and theory as
integral parts of its programme.
The director is responsible for the artistic programme and works on the
development of Casco's identity within a national and international
context. Moreover, the director leads a small organization and is thereby
also responsible for staffing and financial policy.
In principle, this position requires full-time employment, however a
possible separation of artistic and business tasks could be negotiated.
For further inquiries please contact interim director Wendel ten Arve
(wendeltenarve at hetnet.nl)
Written responses must be received before 7 March 2005 at the following
address: Casco Foundation, to the attention of chairman Guus Beumer, PO box
15530, 1001 NA Amsterdam, The Netherlands.
