For six weeks, The Future and PUB reflected on the events of the Cure Park. These written and visual contributions were published weekly and finally gathered in the publication Art-Cure. The publication explores the question of how art can heal. The Cure Park Festival took place in the forest of Amsterdam, from June 4th to July 16th and brought together over 30 artists, creatives and thinkers with care professionals and the public. The program consisted of installations, interventions, workshops, lectures, performances and films. I participated in the weekly editorial meetings and wrote two articles. On Asylum – a review of the 1972 documentary on the therapeutic residential community for schizophrenics in London. And the essay Well, are you a little lazy with yourself lately?. Which discusses the five-day intensive course Learning Tomorrow’s Language with Louwrien Wijers and Egon Hanfstingl. The course was based on the video footage of the panel discussion Art Meets Science and Spirituality in a Changing Economy organized by Wijers in 1990 at the Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam. In which among others, the Dalai Lama, Robert Rauschenberg, John Cage, Ilya Prigogine, Lawrence Weiner, and Marina Abramovic, participated.
