In addition to a program of social actions, reflection, and research, the NICC presents an artistic program of lectures, exhibitions, symposiums, and presentations on contemporary professional practice.

Apparatus is tot stand gekomen als reactie op de veel geziene valkuil van een expo, waar kunstenaars met een aansluitende stijl of denkwijze samen worden geplaatst. Iedere editie van Apparatus kent zijn begin in het onwetende. Zelfs de kunstenaars, partners en organisatoren weten niet wat de verbindende factor zal zijn. Iedere kunstenaar voegt drie suggesties toe aan het archief dat ze meenemen van editie naar editie. Een van de toegevoegde suggesties uit het archief zal door willekeur het thema worden. Op deze manier voorziet Apparatus een groep jonge kunstenaars van een gemeenschappelijke factor en daagt men deze uit om binnen hun eigen stijl en werkethiek een raakpunt te vinden met het onderwerp. De willekeur en het grootschalige archief hebben het onderwerp 'het ei' geboden. Wat Apparatus brengt tot de titel van de eerste editie: APPARATUS: OVUM


The starting point of 'APPARATUS' is the common trap where like-minded and stylistically resembling artists are lumped together in an exhibition. Every edition of 'APPARATUS' will take off from a point of 'not knowing'. Even the artists, participants or partners have no idea what the common thread through the exhibition will be. Each artist enters three suggestions into the archive of possible subjects, which will carry on throughout the lifespan of the larger project. 'APPARATUS' then provides a group of wildly different artists an object randomly chosen from their archive as a shared source of inspiration, from which totally new work will be conceived, surprising both artists and visitors. 'APPARATUS' has provided us with 'the egg' as the main focus, leading to the name of the project's first edition, APPARATUS: OVUM.
