BLUE LINKS

Blue is the sky, blue is the ocean. Blue is our mood (sometimes). Blue are the paths that have not yet been followed. 

The leaps, jumps, and dives that are implicit to clicking the blue links allow for traveling back and forth between states and spaces. When generating paths, we think through both collective physicality and individual domains — bound territories to be traversed.

Not so long ago, we sat inside, looking through the window, thinking about the outside. Today we welcome you to look through our windows from the outside, as they open from within. Grab your map and go on a journey, follow these links that connect us. Roam around the array of works, existing not only as single fractions but also as part of a collective.

Nothing exists in isolation, without pathways of convergence, overlap or synchronicity. We are all linked, connecting in-between and with each other. 

Blueness dissolves upon activation.

EARTHRISE × Zhōuwéi Network

A Hybrid Reality Game
30th of April till the 31st of May | FREE

Something is rising in the midst of the city surrounding us. In between the many microcosms of the infinitely unfinished city of Rotterdam, three potential futures are emerging in the nebulous atmosphere. A city mirroring a constant construction site opens up doorways to realities close enough to sense. The realities of the year 2041.

In a game of chance, players are led to a series of geographical locations, to try and unlock artefacts of the societies of Zhōuwéi Network. In the form of an ephemeral soundscape, EARTHRISE infiltrates your perception of the changing sceneries you find yourself in as you follow the directions of the game makers. As you surrender to the game, your destined path will unravel before you. Do you feel at home in your own reality? What about the one you are moving towards?

Playable now mobile only on https://earthrise.zhouwei.network/
Zhōuwéi Network is a worldbuilding research umbrella that explores the design of affective undertones in different speculative future societies, in dialogue with currently emerging technocultural developments. The fiction series ‘Embodied ambitopias’ (2021) zooms in on hypothetical mind-body exercises, combined with speculative interfaces and contrasting rhetorics to shed light on the differences, as well as the occasional similarities, between the three worlds.

Liminal Vision is a creative collaboration between Victor Evink (s x m b r a) and Emilia Tapprest (nvisible.studio). Their project Zhouwéi Network is currently showcased at Zero Emissions by 2099, in MAMA, curated by Mary Ponomareva.

With contributions by Gill Baldwin, Camilo García Aycardi & Federico Poni. Produced by Erik Peters, Ruta Genyte & Louisa Teichmann in collaboration with MAMA and Mary Ponomareva.

PERFORMING THE LENS: THE CHOREOGRAPHY, ALGORITHMS AND MATERIALITY OF IMAGEMAKING

In recent decades, our engagement with the world has become increasingly virtual. This shift has profoundly affected our relationship with and understanding of images. The global pandemic has exacerbated the situation: we now interact with the world almost exclusively through images on screens. In discussions of how the new reality is affecting people’s everyday lives, however, surprisingly little attention is paid to the role of the lens in shaping our new virtualized “being in the world.”

The artworks brought together in the exhibition Performing the Lens, all produced by 2020 graduates of the Piet Zwart Institute either as part of their degree projects or shortly after graduation, signal a reengagement by artists with the formative power of lenses. Through reinvestigating and expanding established lens-based practices and discourse, these works explore the lens as an active tool in the construction and perpetuation of reality. Focusing on the choreography, algorithms and materiality of contemporary imagemaking, Performing the Lens stimulates new ways of being, seeing and imagining that ground us in the world again.

Festival information.

The year is 2020. The world is fighting a pandemic. In the Netherlands, the government announces city lockdown to control the spreading of the disease. Stuck in a foreign country and longing for home, the narrator walks out one day, starting a trip hoping to find somewhere to belong. FROM HOME TO HOME” weaves together mysterious images that evoke classic science fiction cinema, such as SOLARIS and FRAU IM MONDE to convey the experience of being trapped in the uncanny and silent Netherlands while longing for home. And depicts the protagonist’s journey of finding her way home – on the wrong side of the world.

Climb the Wall Roodkapje

Climb the Firewall – Interactive Event – Roodkapje

Climb the Firewall
Saturday, 5th December, 2020.
14:00 – 20:00

We are excited to invite you to Climb the Firewall, an interactive *real-life* scavenger hunt throughout Rotterdam’s streets to safely play in the age of broadcasted lifes. Rough tapes, computer fossils and prehistoric mobile phones will drive you to unlock your path for the unexpected.

Grab your bored roommates, venture out into the real world and follow the traces of De Tapijttegels all the way through the center of Rotterdam to enter their secret headquarters. If you make it on time and bring their lost treasures, they might reward you with an exclusive *real-life* performance. If not, at least you made it out of the house. But beware: Winners don’t fall from the sky. You will have to master multiple channels to find your way.

  • Guided tours will take place on Saturday 17 and 31 October, and 14 November.
  • There are two tours each day, starting 13:00 and 16:00 hours, in groups of max. 3 people. We will be following corona measures and social distance guidelines.
  • Tours begin and end at Roodkapje, and take about 45 minutes.
  • The price of the tour is free but you must reserve a time slot.
  • To participate in the tour you need a working SMARTPHONE and HEADPHONES.
  • In order to start tours in time we ask you to arrive 30 minutes prior to the start of the tour.

THE HAMBURGER COMMUNITY OF ART (HCA)

The Hamburger Community of Art (HCA) is Roodkapje’s year long residency and development trajectory for young and 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? And, how can they find new and intriguing ways to connect to diverse audiences?

This project is supported by Roodkapje and Stimulerings Fonds NL.
