Research and publication program in the ruru huis
Editorial plays with the concept of ​​publishing. It is a way of generating knowledge and sharing ideas, and not only on paper. This takes place through three “channels”: the ruru buitendienst research group, the ruru huis radio program, and the publication series Karbon Arnhem Files.

Curator and editor Sanne Oorthuizen conceptualizes and leads the program, with the support of editorial assistant Sanne de Vries.

Karbon Arnhem Files
From colonial history to ecology, and from public space to colouring outside the lines: each Karbon Arnhem File publication highlights a particular issue. In the process, artists, writers, researchers, activists, collectives, designers, and many others work closely with the Editorial team. This results in a cacophony of voices asking critical questions about our daily reality. Karbon Arnhem Files is inspired by ruangrupa's own Karbon magazine, and brings together experimental art and design practices.

Throughout the duration of SONSBEEK '16, you can pick up a copy of these publications for a small donation (suggested price €2) at various partner locations in Arnhem. After SONSBEEK ’16, you can find the publications in Arnhem at the Dutch Art Institute, Lokatie Spatie, de Werkplaats Typografie and at the offices of the Sonsbeek International Foundation. You can also download the Karbon Arnhem Files for free here.

ruru buitendienst
Exploring the public space of Arnhem through diverse artistic interventions: that is what ruru buitendienst does, as a research team consisting of committed artists and researchers. They collect and produce knowledge about how the city is used, and by whom, and along the way discover crawling routes and secret paths.

For example, among their publications is Karbon Arnhem File #1: ruru buitendienst. They have also designed alternative city walks that you will soon be able to download as a podcast. Likewise, they are setting up a reading group in which they read aloud the “General Local Regulations of Arnhem” (which are municipal regulations having to do with public order and security), and comb through the blind spots. This research formed the basis of the Wandelingen Publieke Ruimte (Walks in Public Space).

Editorial LIVE!
Editorial LIVE! was one-day mini-symposium that gave insight into the many activities and friends of the Editorial-programme. Central themes of the day were  the notion of visibility and the fetish of visibility in the art world. These were explored by means of talks, conversations, artistic interventions, snacks en a festive evening picnic. Read the review by Afra Suci here
