Good news: Bloch is soon back on the road (or better: boat). Next destination: CHILE.
We got invited to be part of the Festival de arte contemporaneo SACO8 in Antofagasta/Chile this Summer.
Currently Bloch is prepared by Roger Gentinetta and his son for the shipping to South America. Bloch was stored almost a year in Rawsonville outside Cape Town with the Le Roux-Family. – Thank you all for taking good care of our Bloch!
– Chile, estamos aquí pronto!
Urnäscher Nochrichte published a review on seven years of Bloch (in German).
Bloch is on its way back to Cape Town for a last performance at the 8. WOOD Conference – thank you all for your great collaborations!

Roger Gentinetta + Claudia Schwinn, Bloch’s South African parents, curators, producers, caretakers and much more over the last 6 months are now leaving the tree for the next few months in custody of Ryder Molobela at the Art Gallery of Contemporary Art at Graskop Hotel. – After more than 15’000km with Bloch (red) or scouting for its productions (green), they start on a new trip towards Kilimanjaro before they reunited towards the end of the year – We wish them wonderful adventures!
Bloch is currently – and until January 2018 – on show at the art gallery of MAP (Modern Art Project) in Graskop, opposite the Graskop Hotel.
In case the doors are closed or if you want to interact/collaborate with Bloch, please contact Ryder Molobela (073 296 5369) or ask at the reception of the Graskop Hotel.
