Reactie BKNL op advies Sociaal Economische Raad en Raad voor Cultuur

Vandaag verscheen het advies ‘Passie gewaardeerd’ van SER en Raad voor Cultuur. De raden concluderen dat de culturele en creatieve sector een belangrijke bijdrage levert aan de samenleving, maar dat de arbeidsmarkt op onderdelen niet goed functioneert waardoor werkenden maar weinig terugzien van de waardecreatie die de sector realiseert.

Coming to A Tale of a Tub soon: 'Running out of History' by Michal Helfman.

”That night I realized I had to tell them about my true identity" (excerpt from film).

The exhibition Running out of History unfolds around Michal Helfman's latest fiction film, based on two real dialogues that revolve around the activist G.. She is an Israeli woman who is the founder and head of a NGO which provides humanitarian aid to populations in crisis. During the last four years the NGO has been smuggling humanitarian aid to the besieged population in Syria. Using a mix of abstract dance, technology and theater Helfman presents us with a narrative about justice, historical construction, art, politics and activist practices.

This weekend is your last chance to see Muntadas his solo-show "Activating Artifacts: About Academia".

Location: Rozenstraat 59, Amsterdam
Opening hours: Wednesday-Sunday, 12-18 PM

Through this exhibition you delve into the themes of privatisation, corporatisation, gentrification and globalisation of the American higher education. Our director Niels Van Tomme originally conceived the project for the Center for Art, Design and Visual Culture in Baltimore (his former employee, and a university-affiliated exhibition venue), where it opened one week prior to Amsterdam. For this presentation at Rozenstraat 59, De Appel partners with the University of Amsterdam to reflect on how the exhibition’s themes resonate within the context of Dutch academia post UvA’s student uprising in 2015.

The Salzburg International Summer Academy of Fine Arts would like to share the many new courses they offer this year. Applications for grants are now possible, too.

"The many students and teachers from all over the world who meet in the summer in Hohensalzburg Fortress create a unique atmosphere where they can readily find new incentives, make contacts and give their own work a new direction. In the Summer Academy, artistic production will be examined in all aspects, from the standpoints of artists, curators and critics. Teaching is both practical and theoretical. Painting is presented as a discursive medium, traditional techniques such as stone sculpture and miniature painting are brought up to date; many courses are interdisciplinary, and for the first time a blogging course is offered. Once again, outstanding personalities from the art world, including Ruth Noack, Paulina Olowska and Tony Chakar, will be teaching at the Summer Academy."

The Summer Academy awards numerous grants for participation in one of the 18 courses. The deadline is 3 April 2017.
