Met kunst gentrificatie te lijf in Amsterdam-West

Mooi artikel van Charlie Vielvoye in Amsterdam Alternative over Social Capital #2 Amsterdam-West:

'Ik blijf achter met meer vragen dan antwoorden met betrekking tot gentrificatie, maar TAAK en LIMA zijn door hun focus op kunst en interventie in de publieke ruimte er echt in geslaagd om iets tastbaars neer te zetten waarmee op zijn minst mensen aan het denken worden gezet over onze veranderende stad en misschien zelfs wel worden aangespoord om van de (praat)stoel af te komen en in actie te komen.'

TeleAgriCulture

The Australian artist/designer/curator/researcher/educator (julianstadon.net) is in Rotterdam for a residency in July and August 2019. He will be working at V2_ alongside a.o. Erik Overmeire on the Teleagriculture project.

With TeleAgriCulture they set out to create a 'Cloud/Crowd Agricultural Data Network for Artists', and an 'Aquaponic Permaculture Micro-Modular Agriculture Network'.

The project was conceived at the MIT Global Community Bio Summit in October 2018 and is supported by V2_ Lab for Unstable Media. It is inspired by the recent explosion of agricultural technologies and methods in the Netherlands such as saltwater farming and builds on current artistic discourse in relation to ecology, the Anthropocene and agency.

Het is te gek voor woorden wat je dit jaar allemaal tijdens Valkhof Festival kunt beleven (13 t/m 19 juli) | The Daily Indie

The Daily Indie tipt: "Als laatste willen we nog Lichtzaal met je delen, dat plaatsvindt op zaterdag 13 juli: een expositie waarin Rosalie Wammes het dunne verband tussen schoonheid en vergankelijkheid laat zien. Vorig jaar waren we enorm onder indruk door de expositie van Wammes tijdens Motel Mozaique. Doe er je voordeel mee! (RJ)"
↳Tot morgen! Extrapool x Valkhof Festival

Cecilia Vicuña: A Retrospective

"Vicuña’s determination to take on the big subjects is only one part of an impressively nimble 'oeuvre' on display in the exhibition. Indeed, it is when Vicuña speaks more intimately and at a smaller scale that I felt her works take on an even greater power."

Latest review of Cecilia Vicuña's exhibition at Witte de With Center for Contemporary Art by MAP is now online! Thank you MAP!

Brieven aan Melly Shum - Events - Programma - Witte de With

On Saturday 13 July, 2 - 3 pm, we’ll write Letters to Melly Shum, together with the artist Marike Vierstra. Melly Shum Hates Her Job, what about you? https://on.wdw.nl/2L9Ld5R

In 1990 Witte de With organized a solo exhibition of the Canadian artist Ken Lum. This exhibition involved a billboard project in the public space, showcasing Ken Lum’s work; “Melly Shum Hates Her Job”. It was hung all over Rotterdam, from north to south. Also at the façade of Witte de With. When they took the billboard down, after the exhibition ended, protest arose from the neighborhood. Melly had to come back! Now nearly thirty years later, Melly is still hanging. Almost everyone has felt like Melly at some point in their life.

At least, Marike Vierstra has. In the same period as the exhibition was on at Witte de With, Vierstra had a job she absolutely hated. In Melly Shum she found someone equal and therefor she decided to express her frustrations in letters she wrote to Melly. She wrote about how much she hated her job, but she also mentioned how she hoped that both her as Melly would soon find something they like.

On 13 July Marike Vierstra will address Melly Shum for one last time. Together with her, we’ll write new letters to Melly, expressing our hate for our job, or encouraging Melly to stay strong.

----

Op 13 juli, van 14:00 tot 15:00 ur, schrijven we samen met kunstenaar Marike Vierstra Letters to Melly Shum. Melly Shum Hates Her Job, jij ook? https://on.wdw.nl/2S8aTAv

In 1990 opende in Witte de With een solotentoonstelling van de Canadese kunstenaar Ken Lum. Onderdeel van deze tentoonstelling was een affiche in de buitenruimte “Melly Shum Hates Her Job”. Het affiche hing door heel Rotterdam, zo ook aan de zijgevel van Witte de With. Toen het affiche na de tentoonstelling werd weggehaald kwam er protest uit de buurt. Melly moest terug! Nu bijna dertig jaar later hangt Melly er nog steeds. Bijna iedereen heeft zich wel eens net als Melly gevoeld.

Zo ook Marike Vierstra. In dezelfde periode als de tentoonstelling in Witte de With had Vierstra een opdracht waar ze een enorme hekel aan had. In Melly Shum vond zij een gelijke en dus besloot ze haar frustraties te uiten in brieven aan Melly. In haar brieven schreef ze hoe verschrikkelijk zij haar baan vond, maar sprak ze ook de hoop uit dat zij en Melly snel iets nieuws zouden vinden.

Op 13 juli richt Marike Vierstra zich nog eens tot Melly en schrijven we samen met haar brieven aan Melly Shum.

Freja Niemann Lundrup sculpts an outside for the inside

Freja Niemann Lundrup’s sculptures demonstrate the intricate relation between body and mind. Or, more specifically, between the physical feeling and rational thoughts regarding a traumatic experience.
During her residency at SEA Foundation, Freja Niemann Lundrup focuses on the ‘Unheimlich’ in relation to horror and trauma in the body.
