Kunst is Lang
Oct 26, 2020
Het tempo van afwisselingen en opkomende kunstenaars is hoog, de zendtijd voor hedendaagse kunst is bescheiden. Daarom maakt mister Motley samen met presentator Luuk Heezen sinds november 2015 het radioprogramma Kunst is Lang: een gesprek waarin een hedendaagse kunstenaar drie kwartier de tijd krijgt om te praten over zijn of haar kunst, het kunstenaarschap, en het wereldbeeld dat daarachter zit. Maandag 25 oktober is Pieter Paul Pothoven te gast.
In the Presence of Absence
Sep 5, 2020 ⟶ 31 Jan, 2021
Spanning more than 14 rooms, the interdisciplinary exhibition In the Presence of Absence presents a selection of (counter) narratives that challenge fixed ideas about our society and question how history is written. When not addressed by organizations such as schools, libraries, archives, and museums, the absence of these stories forms knowledge gaps within the public debates that shape our collective consciousness and memory.
this edition of the Proposals for Municipal Art Acquisitions is curated by Britte Sloothaak and Fadwa Naamna and includes the work of Sadik Afraji, Leonardiansyah Allenda, Kristina Benjocki, Kasper Bosmans, Rowena Buur, Anna Dasović, Timo Demollin, Quinsy Gario in collaboration with Mina Ouaouirst, Inas Halabi, Remy Jungerman, Natasja Kensmil, Sarah van Lamsweerde in collaboration with Leroy de Böck and Alicia Hoost, DOMINIQUE (Dominique Latoel), Ahmet Öğüt, Wendelien van Oldenborgh, Our Polite Society, Pieter Paul Pothoven, Farida Sedoc, Ghita Skali, Evelyn Taocheng Wang, Jennifer Tee, Gilleam Trapenberg and Werker Collective

Dürst Britt & Mayhew
May 5, 2018 ⟶ 23 Jun, 2018
The Hague, NL
facade suspended, my first solo exhibition at gallery Dürst Britt & Mayhew, sheds light on RARA, the Revolutionary Anti-Racist Action. During the 1980s and 1990s, this resistance collective fought against racism, oppression and exploitation, the ongoing legacy of Dutch imperialist history. The works on show are the first in a series in which I, in close consultation with RARA, both document and elaborate on this unprecedented case of post-war resistance. Point of departure for this exhibition is Overtoom 274, a house in Amsterdam that played a pivotal role in the exposure of RARA. facade suspended focuses on a police raid on the premises that took place in 1988, as well as on the facade, which is not only linked to RARA, but also has its own distinctive connection to the Dutch colonial past.
On the occasion of facade suspended, a text by historian and journalist Roeland Muskens (author of: On the right side, a biography of the Dutch anti-apartheidsmovement 1960-1990) with comments by RARA is published.
