Sourcebook explores and showcases the ‘re-search impulses’ of artists Mandy El-Sayegh and Helena Hunter through their conceptual, material and structural coincidences. Curated by Renan Laru-an, this pop-up exhibition can be seen in Het Nieuwe Instituut’s Research Centre until the end of 2022. It is shown alongside research and archival material from the National Collection and the institute’s Collecting Otherwise project, which aims to explore, reclaim and re-narrate archival research methods and tools.

Centred on a short film shown on the Research Centre’s digital tables, Sourcebook explores different manifestations of artistic research, such as cuts and transitions, speech notations and poetry. By bringing the National Collection housed at the institute in dialogue with artistic explorations that decentre Western understandings of research and heritage, new narratives are formed about the meaning of ‘collecting otherwise’.
