The DUSTY WRITING GROUP is a research platform for curatorial and artistic practices. The focus of the DUSTY WRITING GROUP lies in disclosing artistic traditions to a multiplicity of contextual spheres and subject them to contemporary thinking. In these intersections, the group aims to re-discover knowledge and find new methodologies. As a research initiative we are intrigued in how specific movements evolved a visual language operating in their smallest details and up to larger structures in culture in a way that their influence can still be felt through time.

The DUSTY WRITING GROUP is a grid-initiative, that is, the essence of the group is not limited to the exchange of energies between few people as in a collective, instead we face outwards and allow others to engage and add to it.


ROSA JOHANNA graduated from the Gerrit Rietveld Academy, was nominated for the Van Abbemuseum, Theodora Niemeijer prize in 2016 and was Nominated for the Dutch Royal Price of Painting in 2017. Next to her painterly practice, she works as curator. She extends the visual language she used in her paintings in the curation of event and exhibitions. As curator her interest relies in the performativity of historical facts and nondescriptive qualities of (abstract) painting.

In Anastasija Pandilovska’s artistic practice, her eye lays in the latent gestures of the daily, in the objects, spaces and sounds that might be left unnoticed of which its quality she brings to the foreground in her artistic practice. She concentrates on the minuscule details of which significance directs the bigger scope in the manner how we perceive our surroundings. Considering the context of the space where the work is presented, Pandilovska accepts the conditions and allows them to influence her work.
