trashkot

Sunday 8th of April, from 15.00h to 16.30h, I'll be making radio with Sjoerd Leijten at Radio Centraal, Antwerp.

Listen in and around Antwerp at 106.7 FM. Outside Antwerp you can listen via the stream: http://streaming.radiocentraal.org/

trashkot is a bi-weekly radio program by Jo Caimo and Sjoerd Leijten on Radio Centraal in Antwerp. A rancid tissue of sounds, conversations and thrash forms a shaky bridge between music and politics.

meeting the aleph*

‘Time turns metaphors into things’

Please join us on Sunday the 1st
of April for an afternoon of presentations and discussions with

Alena Alexandrova, with whom we'll think about how "time turns metaphors into things" **;

Clara J:son Borg, who will take us on a compressed logo-motional odyssey concerning defence identities, pacifism, and the social contract based on hygiene;

— and Adrien Lucca, who will show us why "the Blue and the Violet are in some way more colors than the Red and the Yellow; and red more than Yellow..." ***.

We will open at 12.30 when there will be some food and drinks. The presentations and discussions will start at 13.00 and end at around 16.00.

We hope you can join us, Phil, Jasper, Roos, Stijn, and guests.

meeting the aleph*

...‘so now’, she said, ‘you must really start to tell me about yourself.’

About a month ago we witnessed the first re-appearance of the Aleph. We’re very happy to introduce our guests for the second event in this new series:

— artist Rosa Johanna;
— artist Rutger Emmelkamp;
— artist and writer Miek Zwamborn.

For those of you who hear about this initiative for the first time: between 2009 and 2011, Jasper Coppes and Roos van den Eerenbeemt organised a series of talks, readings, and presentations, usually hosted in the living rooms of friends, under the name Meeting the Aleph. We (Jasper and Roos, along with Phil Baber and Stijn Verhoeff) have decided to revive Meeting the Aleph, this time with our studio at KNSM-Laan 167 as the location. Our intention is to create a space where friends and acquaintances can share work, ideas, research, interests, etc., without the pressure associated with more formal or institutional settings.

The meeting will be held this coming Sunday the 17th of December. We will open at 12.30, and there will be some food and drinks. The presentations and discussions will start at 13.30 and end at around 16.00.

open call

In het voorjaar van 2018 zullen componist/muzikant Sjoerd Leijten en kunstenaar/schrijver Stijn Verhoeff resident zijn bij Kunsthuis SYB. www.kunsthuissyb.nl

Voor hun filmproject IN SEARCH OF THE FUTURE zijn zij op zoek naar geschreven verhalen over de toekomst. Heeft u ideeën over hoe de toekomst er uit zal zien? Heeft u voor ogen wat er met het landschap is gebeurd? Hoe de mensen met elkaar spreken? Waar men in gelooft, welke rol de dieren op zich hebben genomen of hoe de technologie zich heeft ontwikkeld? Schrijf dan een monoloog, dialoog of groepsgesprek van maximaal 2000 woorden.

Richtlijnen zijn: a) het gesprek vindt in het heden plaats en gaat over de toekomst, b) de verbeelding van een mogelijke toekomst staat centraal, c) het kan een impressie zijn en hoeft geen uitgewerkt verhaal met karakterontwikkeling of plot te zijn, d) de tekst hoeft geen complete, coherente wereld te verbeelden, maar mag één onderwerp belichten (bv. de toekomst van het platteland, de relatie met het verleden, een nieuwe ideologie, interseksualiteit, eten, …), e) het gesprek vindt op een eenvoudige plek plaats (bv. in het café, op zolder, tijdens een wandeling door het bos) en f) de tekst kan zowel in het Nederlands als in het Fries geschreven worden (bij een Friese tekst s.v.p. een korte synopsis in het Nederlands).

Voor vragen mail Stijn Verhoeff: svff@protonmail.com

socratic dialogues

Dear Friend,

after a summer full of inspiration and relaxation, we want to start the new year well by coming together again!

Some might be familiar with the format of the Socratic dialogues, for others it might be new. In any case, Wouter Klein Velderman will introduce and lead the dialogues. Don’t worry tough, you don’t need to be a philosopher at all.

We have two dates coming up: Sunday 27th of Augustus and Sunday 24th of September. Both days we come together at KNSM-laan 167 and start at 16.00 hours. The dialogues will take 2 to 3 hours.

Do you want to join? Please let us know (we have place for 10 people each date). Or do you know somebody who might be interested? Feel free to forward.

All the best,
Wouter and Stijn

Stijn Verhoeff is an artist and writer, making films, books, audio works and exhibitions.

He was born in 1981 in Amsterdam and started studying in the early 2000’s: first Fine Art at the Gerrit Rietveld Academy in Amsterdam, then Documentary Film at Brunel University in London and at the end of the decade as a researcher at Jan van Eyck Academie Maastricht.

He made solo-exhibitions at Foam Amsterdam, W139 Amsterdam, New Shelter Plan Copenhague and Galerie van Gelder Amsterdam, and published amongst others with Tijdschrift Terras, De Internet Gids, Amsterdam Alternative and Metropolis M.

Stijn Verhoeff used to be interested in the relationship between nature and culture, approaching it form an aesthetic and poetic perspective; lately he has come to realise activist approaches are at least as important.

Next to his individual projects Stijn Verhoeff often collaborates with other artists, writers and musicians.
