Roodkapje and the Hamburger Community of Art are excited to invite you to a lecture by Rotterdam-based artist Jeanne van Heeswijk.

As an artist, Jeanne van Heeswijk facilitates the creation of dynamic and diversified public spaces in order to “radicalize the local”. Her long-scale community-embedded projects question art’s autonomy by combining performative actions, discussions, and other forms of organising and pedagogy in order to assist communities to take control of their own future.

On the 20th of November, Van Heeswijk will take us deeper into her socially engaged practice by addressing more closely her latest exhibition project: Trainings for the Not-Yet at BAK, basis voor actuele kunst, Utrecht.

Trainings for the Not-Yet is an exhibition project that unfolds through a series of trainings in civic engagement, radical collectivity and active empowerment, the project brings to together collaborators from various field and communities to create and practice alternative imaginings of being together in the face of the pressing emergencies that shape the world today.

The work of Jeanne van Heeswijk includes many projects worldwide, both as durational projects in public space, such as Philadelphia Assembled, PARKWERK in Dinslagen, and Freehouse - Radicalizing the Local, and solo and group exhibitions such as The Value of Nothing at TENT, Rotterdam, Radicalizing the Local (Museum of Arte Util) at Van Abbe Museum, Eindhoven, and the current exhibition Trainings for the Not-Yet at BAK, basis voor actuele kunst, Utrecht.
Trainings for the Not-Yet is currently on show at BAK Utrecht until 12 January 2020. The exhibition is accompanied by a extensive public programme.

About the Hamburger Community of Art:
The Hamburger Community of Art (HCA) is a yearlong development program for emerging artists based on the principles of experimentation, collaboration and developing new artistic practices. What can artists learn from each other? How can (young) artists stimulate their development collectively? What can society learn from artists and vice versa?

We are also pleased to welcome Razan Hassan, a young Syrian filmmaker from the Nederlandse Filmacademie. Together we will watch and analyse her beautiful and raw documentary, comprised of video shots of her archived childhood memories in Syria.

In November Roodkapje will be visited for a second time by FOEF. A party that believes queerness should be thrown around like glitter, not just because it should shine bright for everyone to see, but especially because, like glitter, once it’s out there you will never get rid of it again.

"FOEF // A night to express

A TRASHY person is someone who lacks class, meaningful goals and purpose in life. They are amused with unimportant matters and simple acticities such as celebrity gossip, shopping for useless merchandise, and excessive PARTYING into late hours. Trashy people wear EXORBITANT amounts of make-up, PROVOCATIVE clothing, get drunk in public and behave PROMISCUOUSLY....

This fall we are back at Roodkapje on the 22nd of November for the 8th edition of FOEF. So dig deep and find your inner TRASH and bring its AESTHETICS to the surface. Because at this FOEF we are all worth a MILLION, even our trashiest parts."

This workshop follows Jeanne van Heeswijk’s Lecture on Wednesday November 20th: https://www.facebook.com/events/526511167909936/

Human Home Workshop, featuring potatoes 🥔, snow ❄️, and people we love 💕, pass by and see on a bus stop ⛔️🚍

It’s almost December and we are bombarded with shiny tinsel, shelves of baubles, adverts of happy people in festive jumpers, they’re eating and drink together, surrounded by scenes of snow.

Whether the festivities are part of your culture or not, you start thinking about home. Or “home home”. Usually your childhood home and family.

But what about the rest of the year?

Who are those familiar faces? A smiley shop keeper? A grumpy neighbour smoking across the street? Or that bearded guy that always says hello on in the Maastunnel?

Come and share your humans, tell stories and make patterns about them with seasonal vegetables!

MATERIALS
Materials for this workshop will be provided by Vlada Predelina, but you are encouraged to bring you own seasonal vegetables (potatoes, pumpkins, beetroots, carrots, etc.) to shape into pattern stamps!

Vlada Predelina •
Vlada Predelina has a strong interest in community-led housing and notions of domestic life. Through her work, she researches what the role of the artist can be in decision making, using hands-on process in materials like paint, ceramics and pattern-making. Through this, the artist believes that the methods of collective working and thinking open up discussions and new ways of thinking about home and housing. Predelina is currently developing workshops, ceramic objects and digital work which she combines with embroidery and video. She took part in School of the Damned, a year-long alternative art course directed by its students. Vlada graduated from Kingston University (London) and took part in various projects and workshops.

Our art program is dynamic, surprising and multi-voiced at heart. Exhibitions, workshops, installations, talks, performances, experiments and the new Hamburger Community of Art residency form the basis of our 2019 programme. Whether it’s making Russian dumplings, performing a group choreography, creating face masks or indulging in a jelly fruit performance - you can engage in our public art program in many, many ways.

The Hamburger Community of Art artists-in-residence and the various art programmers are the ones who have the strongest say in the development of Roodkapje’s art programme. They determine the content and shape of the many activities that are being organized throughout the year and, thereby, are an integral part of Roodkapje. Without them, Roodkapje would not be the same.

If you are looking for unconventional, experimental yet accessible art, then Roodkapje is the place for you.

Hamburger Community of Art

Read more about the HCA residency program and artists below

With the Hamburger Community of Art residency program, Roodkapje takes a new direction in terms of the presentation, talent support and development within its art program. The Hamburger Community of Art (HCA) is a yearlong artistic development program for emerging artists. During this pilot year, Roodkapje aims to equip the selected artists – as well as the audience – with skills to be resourceful and self-sufficient in assembling diverse voices through training, mentoring (by a.o. Rory Pilgrim and Nada van Dalen) and with support in organizing events, presentations and workshops. The HCA will produce and host cultural events, social activities and projects that will be open to all audiences. 

The HCA is based on the principles of experimentation, collaboration and developing new artistic practices. Questions we need to ask ourselves are: What can artists learn from each other? How can (young) artists stimulate their development collectively? What can society learn from artists and vice versa?

Please keep an eye on our website and the HCA instagram page to join in on the HCA public program! Or walk by the window of the HCA to see what they are working on.

Jeisson Drenth

Jeisson Drenth is a video artist and designer dedicated to making experimental and meaningful contributions to contemporary visual culture. His studies in graphic design (Willem de Kooning Academy, Rotterdam) piqued and nurtured his interests in network culture and semiotics, and motivated him to make these subjects the driving force behind his creative practice. His ongoing research translates to both commissioned and self-initiated projects which are shared with a wide audience in different online and offline experiences. Since the founding of his studio in 2013, Jeisson has worked internationally on live shows and design projects for cultural organisations, night clubs and festivals such as M HKA (Museum of Modern Art Antwerp), Together Festival (Boston), Vision (Ghent, Berlin), Amsterdam Dance Event (Amsterdam), Atlas Electronic (Marrakesh), NEXUS Europe Summit (Rotterdam), Untitled (Toronto) and La Bacchanale (Montréal).

Clementine Edwards

Clementine Edwards came to art through jewelry and her work expanded to sculpture and installation. Edwards works with materials that are sourced from people she encounters via meaningful social interactions. Clementine is currently working within two artistic frameworks. First, she investigates ’material as kin’, which emerges from her research into the material traces of social experience, particularly trauma. Second, she investigates the ‘story chain’, which is her own extrapolation and counter-proposition to the abstracted violence of supply-chain capitalism. Clementine Edwards holds a masters from the Dutch Art Institute, and a BFA (Gold &  Silversmithing) from RMIT, Melbourne. She had solo exhibitions and projects at Rib (Rotterdam), West Space (Melbourne) and Te Uru (Auckland). Her work is included in group shows in a.o. Galerie van Gelder (Amsterdam), the Tblisi Triennial (Tblisi) and Brunswick Sculpture Center (Brunswick).

Adam Patterson

Adam Patterson is an artist and writer. He investigates the processes of how stories, images and conditions of being gazed at affect the emergence of one’s selfhood, self-determinacy and right to opacity. Patterson developed a practice of telling new stories or rethinking old stories in new recuperative ways, working across a variety of media including mask-making and masquerade, video, critical writing, poetry and performance. He graduated from Central Saint Martins (London, UK) in 2017. His works and performances were showed at a variety of events and projects such as Jerwood Visual Arts (London, UK), the Barbados Museum & Historical Society (Bridgetown, BB), Tate Modern Switch House (London, UK) and Winterwolven V (Roodkapje Rotterdam).

Mylan Hoezen

Mylan Hoezen’s work centers around endurance and self-confrontation. He expresses these themes from within and shares them as a solo artist while inviting others to collaborate. The performances allow a high state of consciousness to be reached by the performer. His work comes from a desire for harmony in a world filled with noise. Hoezen’s performances always have a polarizing nucleus; they are either highly energized or totally passive. After graduating from Minerva Academy (Groningen), Mylan Hoezen traveled to San Francisco for a three month residency at SAFEhouse Arts. This organization mainly focuses on choreographers and dancers. Hoezen had performances and projects in a.o. Gasunie (Groningen), Showroom MAMA (Rotterdam), BUT Film Festival (Breda) and VHDG (Leeuwarden).

King Sepi

King Sepi is an independent Rotterdam-based live platform, founded in 2013 by local promoter Laura Hofman. After initially focusing on Finnish artists, Hofman – a Finland native living in Holland for 11 years – now books and organizes intimate live shows by artists who typically harness an unconventional, outlier creative streak that isn’t easily pigeonholed.

Diversity in both sound and context is key: since the platform’s inception, King Sepi hosted and booked the likes of Liima (Denmark/Finland), Jessica Moss (Canada), Ceremony (USA), White Wine (USA/Germany), Žen (Croatia), Fai Baba (Switzerland), Vök (Iceland), Hater (Sweden), and many many others, showcasing a keen focus on bands from outside of the Anglo-American musical sphere.

King Sepi is a place where exciting bands, both home and abroad, often enter the Rotterdam circuit for the first time. In addition, it puts strong emphasis on devious music from Dutch soil, convening both the local and global elements towards an exciting, unpretentious house show atmosphere, one that fuels the whims of artists who are willing to take risks on stage.

FOEF

FOEF is a platform for the queer community based in Delft. They offer a space to come together and celebrate what it means to be out and proud. At the beginning of March 2019, FOEF flew over to Rotterdam to throw a fairytale-themed night at Roodkapje full of magical STARDUST, poisonous apples, glass STILETTOS and golden carriages. 

At FOEF, you do not have to dress in a certain way, talk about certain things, dance in a certain way and love in a certain way. You can dress/talk/dance and love however and whoever you want! So you don’t have to be gay to join: the more diversity, the better!

Join this queer initiative next time for a non-conformative art, music and fun party.

Kontra 

KONTRA is a grass roots project that focuses on supporting countercultures and subversive art. It is Rotterdam-based but welcomes all dissidents from any and everywhere. KONTRA explores the boundaries between art and social activism and offers alternative ways of art making, partying and art management. We search for countercultures

In March 2019, KONTRA pulled off Rotterdam's very first Slut Walk and organized a banner-making workshop and extended cultural programme at Roodkapje. We are happy and proud to support KONTRA and are eager to march on together.

Keep up with KONTRA and all they have to offer via their Facebook and Instagram.

Open Call | Hamburger Community Of Live 2020

Roodkapje invites pioneers for its Hamburger Community of LIVE (HCL). For 2020 we’re looking for three people for a year long promoter-in-residence programme at Roodkapje, a multidisciplinary platform for presentation, talent support and development.

The HCL offers the ultimate opportunity to take a look behind the scenes of a professional arts organization while you get a chance to develop your own vision on curating Live events. With your fellow promoters and Roodkapje staff, volunteers and artists, you form a community that offers guidance and support to experiment with Live events in music, art, film and performance. Next to guidance by internal and external professionals, we offer you a free workspace, expansion of your network & a monthly compensation for your professional costs.
