Murmansk Project

Stichting Sonic Acts, Friday Milk, 2019

€15.000
Sonic Acts Foundation and Friday Milk are giving young, talented Russian and Dutch makers the opportunity to create new work that makes residents feel more connected to the identity of their city. Murmansk is a remote post-industrial city in the High North of Russia, which more and more inhabitants are leaving. The team wants to use digital culture to show the hidden stories and lost identity of the city in a new way. Three labs will be set up in Murmansk for artistic and speculative research. In the first, 'Field Recording Laboratory', the participants focus on observing and recording the broad range of sounds that represent the multiple layers in the city: from the silent sounds of the tundra to the industrial ambiance from the harbour. In the second, 'VR/AR Laboratory', the participants ask questions about the mechanism of human interactions in the city. By means of VR and AR technology, an interaction is created between the strong tradition of street art in Murmansk and art galleries. In the third, 'Speculative Writing Lab', independent writers and critics focus on ways of thinking and writing critically about urban life. They work on real or fictional interviews and speculative essays that sketch a future scenario for the Murmansk project. The results will be presented in an online report and during the Inversia Festival and the Sonic Acts Academy 2020.

SEE

The City, 2019

€38.240
SEE is a project focusing on spatial inequality in Cape Town. SEE uses knowledge gained from memories, stories and archives about the fight for justice to make the shared history of the Netherlands and Cape Town more visible and to formulate an alternative future. The SEE project's objective is to create new stories centring on an equal Cape Town and which explore a future based on its Creole identity through architecture and (digital) design. SEE offers insights for discussions about contested histories, representation and equality in the public domain and the construction and deconstruction of postcolonial domains and identities in the Netherlands and beyond. The plan comprises design studios from Cape Town and Rotterdam, a transnational academy in Amsterdam, a newspaper and a digital platform that will gather and distribute the results. The City is collaborating with architect Arna Mačkić, Wayne Modest of the Tropenmuseum/RCMC, the Black Archives, Het Nieuwe Instituut, the Institute for Creative Arts (SA) and the Urban Design Institute of South Africa.

Sound of Akoya and Sea

Kumi Hiroi, 2019

€18.000
Kumi Hiroi creates a form of visual language by combining photography, storytelling and graphic design in which she emphasises the complexity of the various techniques. She is developing the study and work 'Sound of Akoya and Sea' in the Netherlands and in Nagasaki, in collaboration with Dutch and Japanese makers. Based on personal experiences and dialogues, she accentuates the differences and similarities between the Dutch and Japanese perspectives on nature. In this project, she further concentrates on the surroundings of the Omura bay in Nagasaki, where Akoya pearls are cultivated. Working with a local pearl business, she investigates the history and context of the production of the pearls and how this relates to the landscape. Hiroi will present this new work at exhibitions in Hokyuann & Sorisso Riso in the Omura bay, Nagasaki Prefectural Art Museum and the IMA gallery in Tokyo in autumn 2019. 'Sound of Akoya and Sea'is part of a larger ongoing project, Akoya and the environment, which was launched by curator Chitose Ochi in 2016.

Noordkaap Taxi

Noordkaap, 2019

€15.195
In the summer of 2019, Noordkaap Taxi will be driving through the city of Cologne with site-specific works by JODI, Abner Preis and Max Dovey, allowing passengers from the city and its suburbs to take rides in the intersecting plane of performance and digital culture. Topical issues such as Dataschutz, Dieselverboten, self-driving cars, surveillance capitalism and the rise of yellow vests in Germany serve to elicit memories from the passengers. These memories and recordings are edited and stored in a new online archive for Cologne, an initiative by Cologne's Akademie der Künste der Welt. With its focus on digital storytelling, VR entertainment and DIY internet technology, Noordkaap is collaborating with, among others, students from Junge Akademie and Game Lab Cologne. Using experimental communication strategies, the organisation hopes to reach a broad audience in addition to the academy's regular, highly educated audience. For the graphic design, Noordkaap is collaborating with students from Amsterdam's Gerrit Rietveld Academie.

Weavers Werkstatt - textile research by Hella Jongerius

Jongeriuslab, 2019

€24.000
At the invitation of Lafayette Anticipations, Hella Jongerius and her design studio Jongeriuslab (Paris) will be transforming the rooms of Anticipations into an experimental workspace from June to September 2019. In the Weavers Werkstatt project, Jongeriuslab is collaborating with design students and textile designers to carry out practice-oriented textile research. Within the framework of this research, Weavers Werkstatt is promoting knowledge transfer between starting and more experienced textile designers and the development of expertise to offer innovation and solutions to the challenges that the textile sector is facing. The Anticipations programme facilitates the development of new works by international makers of modern art, design and fashion. In this publicly accessible workspace, designers from various countries and with various levels of experience carry out hands-on weaving research and experiments. In this way they introduce the public to relevant aspects of the textile production process to create awareness and (renewed) appreciation for textiles.
