the Ghost of Weaving

- considering life’s productive patterns through the work of handcraft masters operating at the edge of abstraction




Featuring Elisa van Joolen, Esther Stocker, Freek Lomme, Hansje van Halem/Tracy Widdess, Har Sanders, Koen TaselaarMaria Hedlund, Sigrid Calon, Timon van der Hijden

The textures of our culture are reflected within the patterns we produce. Sometimes the surface that hosts the pattern is more slippery than imagined, or the pattern appears to have been too unstable in the first place.
As the ruler is held exclusively in the hands of man, why then is the pattern so tempting and why do we give into it time and time again? Extra more, as productive mastery is channelled through ever more abstract processes, digital tools and semi-finished particles, don’t we lose touch with the fundamentals of the pattern produced?

Post-Butt

The power of the image
Melani de Luca


Exhibition will run from 27 May to 20 August 2017.


OH MY GOD, LOOK AT HER BUTT!

Post-Butt analyses the virality of images in our mediated society. More rounded, it is a case study around the image of female butts, bootys, and behinds, and their influence in media, society and art. The butt is the protagonist of mass-mediated cullture, it is the democratic sex organ par excellence. The phenomenon of bootyfication exists in many contexts, as varied as the exploitation of the body in colonialism to 90s hiphop culture. Post-Butt goes through different periods in time and place, to analyse the political meaning of the usage of the image of the female buttocks. Then, it discusses the role of the booty in varied cultural expressions such as film, Internet art, music videos, dance and plastic surgery. Deep inside, Post-butt aims to reflect on how our society is conditioned by viral images, that do not only exist in the digital context, but have deep consequences on our physical world as well.

Homestead of Dilution



From the exhibition ’Homestead of Dilution’ by Domenico Mangano & Marieke van Rooy – curated by Niekolaas Johannes Lekkerkerk 4 May until 28 July 2017, Nomas Foundation, Rome, Italy

An exposition, book presentation and public discussion with and by Domenico Mangano & Marieke van Rooy

The Homestead of Dilution exhibition will run from 24 June 2017, to 20 August.
Opening, talk and book launch: 6 July 2017, 17:00

Who do we allow to live among us and how do we exclude? With variable intensity the question whether psychiatric patients and people with intellectual disabilities can, may or should live among ‘normal’ people has been a subject of debate since the beginning of the twentieth century. The project Homestead of Dilution looks at the Nieuw Dennendal experiment (1969-1974) where psychologist Carel Muller and architect Frans van Klingeren devised an alternative model for ‘deranged’ and ‘healthy’ people to live and play together on the secure property of a psychiatric institution. Nieuw Dennendal, widely considered to be the most ground-breaking experiment in Dutch post-war health care, has become relevant again as more and more mentally distressed people appear in the streets.
