Library Stedelijk Museum
28april 20:00 - 21:00, Museumplein 10 Amsterdam
We start with a presentation by the artist Marta Colpani. For this issue Colpani made the map ‘Distance’.
The map was made during a workshop that she organised as part of her residency at PEER in the summer of 2016.
The participants in the workshop were artists, ethnologists, writers, and video artists: Elisa Fiore, Esther Brakenhoff, Dorin Budusan,
Leslie Newhall, Liesbeth Wieggers, and Annemarie Cilon.
Colpani will take us with her into her research process. You will also get to see some very special treasures - artist made magazines from the archives of the Library Stedelijk Museum -more info-
18May 19:30 - 20:30, in front of Rotterdam CS - performance on a public stage
With this performance Groothof & Olsthoorn take the second step in their search for ways to present their collaborative work to the public. Playing with reality and 'theatre' you will be submerged in their (abstract) observations.
For the 4th issue of Peer paper we coupled Marie Groothof with Lisette Olsthoorn, which resulted in their first collaboration. The ‘Polaroids’ describe a passing moment in time and space with the woman, the man, a little boy or the girl–it could be about anyone and anywhere. They zoom in so much that something ordinary becomes slightly abstract.
PLEASE BRING YOUR OWN HEADPHONES + SMART PHONE. IF YOU DO NOT HAVE THIS EMAIL US TO RESERVE SPARE ONES. WE GATHER IN FRONT OF THE STATION AT 19:30 AND
TOGETHER WE'LL MAKE OUR WAY TO THE STAGE AT 19:50.
BIJZONDERE COLLECTIES UVA
23May 15:45 - 17:00
Oude Turfmarkt 129 Amsterdam - special peer maps tour
Reinder Storm, the Curator of Cartography at the Bijzondere Collecties, will take us on a little tour and show us some real treasures. Storm says that 'Maps' excite everyone. Because they speak in a universal language and trigger a sense of belonging, a sense of place.
Two of the maps that Jitske Jasperse talks about in issue 4 are housed in the Bijzondere Collecties. Both maps reflect the ideologies of the time they were made. Storm will tell us a bit more about this and will talk about the rich history Amsterdam has when it comes to map - making.
WE GATHER IN THE CAFE 15:45 SO THE TOUR CAN START AT 16:00 SHARP. THERE IS A MAX OF 20 PARTICIPANTS SO PLEASE EMAIL US TO RESERVE A SPOT! email@example.com
alina lupu & Jörn Nettingsmeier
open atelier: 02dec - 23dec
exhibition: 05jan - 30jan
opening: 05JAN 17:00 - 20:00
jam session: 08JAN 14:00 - 18:00
We’ll let the two introduce themselves and their project:
We are Jörn Nettingsmeier and Alina Lupu, with combined backgrounds in music studies, fine arts, computer science, psychology, theatre, as well as audio engineering and design. It’s an odd set of skills which brought us together, along with a wish to make projects which reach out and offer a different spatial awareness as well as awareness of overall context to our public.
During a month-long residency we aim to be researching, testing and building a collaborative distributed musical instrument – a sound machine for interaction.
Our collective instrument has the potential to trigger small, temporary (“for a day”) communities which are figuring out game rules in an open space, communities born out of the understanding that it’s only through interaction that complex ways of expression through sound can be born.
Made possible with the kind support of Amsterdam Fonds voor de Kunst.
