The Floor is Lava

For their theatrical exhibition 'The Floor is Lava', artist duo and #rijksakademie alumni Sander Breure and Witte van Hulzen populated Marres, Huis voor Hedendaagse Cultuur with sculptures and molded portraits of people in everyday environments. They are actors in search of a play, as much as they are compositions of identity, that fictional moment of stasis in a world that is constantly on the move.
The opening takes place this afternoon at 5pm, the works are on view until 4 August. See for more information www.marres.org/en/home-en/

Firelei Báez

Firelei Báez’s artwork gives visibility to histories lesser known than master narratives. For some, this may be about justice, for her, it’s also about celebration. The artist is interested in exploring these histories, as she is in drawing from imagery and ideas from mythology and anthropology, as well as in science fiction and theories of female subjectivity. https://on.wdw.nl/2NsFsyA

Experience Firelei's first solo exhibition in the Netherlands at Witte de With until Sunday 12 May 2019.

----

Het werk van Firelei Báez toont ons onderbelichte verhalen uit de wereldgeschiedenis. Deze worden door haar diepgravend onderzocht en aangevuld met elementen uit de beeldtaal en het gedachtegoed van mythologie en antropologie, sciencefiction en theorieën over female subjectivity, de visie van vrouwen op de geschiedenis en de actualiteit. https://on.wdw.nl/2NsHZJb

Ervaar de eerste solotentoonstelling van Firelei in Nederland bij Witte de With tot en met zondag zondag 12 mei 2019.

The Mind-Blowing Institute

MAMA's directeur Nathalie Hartjes schreef een verhaal over ziek zijn, de invloed van wetenschap op onze hersenen en wat zij heeft geleerd van The Mind-Blowing Institute, onze huidige tentoonstelling.

"Dagelijks staarde vanuit de wc-pot knalrood scatologisch bewijsmateriaal mij recht in de ogen. Wegkijken was geen optie meer. Een gedetailleerde beschrijving is echt alleen voor de liefhebber en uitsluitend op persoonlijk verzoek verkrijgbaar."

All Festivals

Photographers pay attention!
TAXED TO THE MAX
...at least you are not afraid to live life on the brink of chaos

Open call for photographers: TAXED TO THE MAX seeks out photographers and artists whose work reveals the costs of widespread acceptance towards the effects of a governance catering to rather than scrutinising the interests of the privileged elites. We specifically invite submissions that focus on the unseen, unspoken, hidden, or ignored social, political and human consequences of neoliberal and corporatist policies. We aim to foreground the narratives of ordinary people grappling with political and
economical movements that remain largely invisible or out of reach, yet who are facing the direct consequences in their daily lives and are constantly asked to ‘do the right thing’. What happens to a person and their individuality at a time when surveillance economies and management of the masses are the directing forces

Deadline: 15 May.

They don't love you like I love you

With an opening on Sunday 10 March at 4pm, BRADWOLFF PROJECTS is presenting Marcel van den Berg's solo show 'They don't love you like I love you'. The #rijksakademie alumnus has a multidisciplinary practice, which is influenced by the sociocultural realities and happenings, past and present, of his native Netherlands and its diaspora. Acutely attuned to the social realities of minority populations, both locally and globally, these sentiments are viscerally and exquisitely translated into his works. The works are on view until 7 April, more information www.burobradwolff.nl

Sally Tape

Sally Tape’s continuous research into the links between #architecture, #minimalism and #movement is a central theme within her artistic practice. Her primary focus is examining how this three-way relationship redefines the idea of contemporary modernism and the non-objective image, making her work less about form and shape, and more about movement and the physical experience of space. Sally Tape from Melbourne has been enjoying herself as an artist in residence in the studio. Come over to Tilburg (gemeente) on Thursday, Friday and Saturday to see her new works Read more: http://www.seafoundation.eu/sally-tape-artist-in-residence-netherlands/

Cultuurpolitiek en Kunstbeleid

Meer aandacht voor financiering in cultuurbeleid

Sinds de ingrijpende bezuinigingsronde in 2011 is de cultuursector voortdurend op zoek naar alternatieve financieringsmiddelen. En hoewel de resultaten van diverse experimenten op dit gebied veelbelovend zijn, zijn de opgehaalde bedragen tot nu toe bescheiden. Volgens de Raad voor Cultuur heeft de sector daarom een aanvullend instrumentarium nodig dat nieuwe financieringsbronnen kan aanboren en het ondernemerschap een stevige impuls geeft.

Lees hier het advies.
