German artist Anika Schwarzlose will present the project Superparliament; a reflection on the impact of architecture on negotiation and decision making. The internationally most widely used parliamentary sitting order is based on the greek atrium, suggesting harmony and balance. This layout seems not to align anymore with our perception of current global politics.Judith Westerveld (work)
Someone’s mother tongue / Iemands moedertaal
Judith (NL / South Africa) has done research in language centres in Amsterdam-Noord that teach Dutch to people that have migrated or found refuge in the Netherlands. She uses various print making techniques to make the language learning process visible. Words, phrases and image alternate between readability and decay of meaning and form. The image is an echo of the learning process of a new language, of the preservation of the mother tongue and the way in which these inevitably become intertwined.House of Cosy Cushions (performance)
House of Cosy Cushions is the band of Groningen’s visual artist Richard Bolhuis. With their minimal, dark, folky but also ambient soundscapes they bring the audience into a beautiful musical trip. Today they will play at 9pm so be on time!Julie Wolfe (art book and film)
