Photo exhibition: Decay in Amsterdam

Monday, April 24th, 2017

A series of photos of decayed houses in Amsterdam, made by Renzo Gerritsen.

We want to raise awareness about alternative solutions to housing shortage and decaying of our historical buildings and monuments. The tourist industry is rapidly burying Amsterdam’s lesser profiled history and cultures; we want to invite you to come celebrate the squatting culture, as it has been a great foundation of what makes our city so interesting today.

Talk by Rianne de Beer Saturday 5pm:

Understanding value of cultural heritage

It is challenging to dictate value of cultural heritage on shared grounds. The significance of value in cultural heritage is grown, composed and forced by a complex system that seems to change its rules with every attempt to describe it. How can cultural value form a voice without exclusion? And how can the cultural voice of value be articulated vs. monetary value depicting personal property? If we want to preserve cultural heritage, whose value is it that we want to preserve? The discourse on these issues will be assessed and unveiled for debate during this event.

Rianne de Beer has a bachelor degree in cultural studies with a minor in restoration and conservation of cultural heritage. She is an assistant conservator of historical archives and paper objects and is concerned with archives from early colonialism to modern warfare.

Benefit and screening: Climbing Walls Making Bridges

Friday, September 9th, 2016


Saturday, September 24th. Benefit and screening of documentary: Climbing Walls, Making Bridges: Capoeira, Parkour and Becoming Oneself in Turin (documentary, 32 mins.). Screening followed by Q&A with cast and crew. Doors and bar open at 7pm. Screening at 8pm.

“Climbing Walls, Making Bridges”is a thirty-two minute collective narrative. The story-tellers are eight young men who practice capoeira and parkour in the public spaces of Turin (Italy), and who narrate the city through their voices, eyes and movements. The project started as a “creative” instrument of ethnographic research, and evolved into an opportunity for co-constructing a participated narration, which involved a total of eleven people (eight participants, and three producers) for eighteen months of work. This narrative articulates several individual stories that cannot be separated from their social, political, and historical context, and through these stories, it addresses migration, belonging and the daily negotiation of meaning and identity in multicultural/super-diverse societies. These issues affect deeply each one of the participants’ daily lives, and regards everyone: citizens, activists, and cultural workers alike. Far from providing answers, theories or models to complex and crucial issues, this documentary instead aims to provide meaningful questions, and the possibility to highlight some of the (in)visible negotiations of self, place and belonging that are enacted daily in our urban spaces.

WTF is going on in Brazil?

Friday, June 3rd, 2016


Screen Shot 2016-05-23 at 5.40.44 PM

” I speak/quote dates of Brazilian independence, abolition of slavery, Proclamation of the Republic and the coup of 1964.

I speak of the racism, transphobia and sexism in the government .

I speak of the vote in the Senate of impeachment and what is happening now.

And we speak of the school occupations.

>>The “advanced” status of European countries is guaranteed by a colonialist and racist structure that still exists, and [we] think it’s important that Europeans know and take conscience of how much people there pay so that people here have a life of comfort.
