Page Not Found and the Master Experimental Publishing (XPUB) at the Piet Zwart Institute, Willem de Kooning Academy, are delighted to invite you to the launch of their Special Issue #14, entitled “I Don’t Know Where We’re Going, But — A Local Network City Quest”.

The Situationist Times was a magazine edited and published by the Dutch artist Jacqueline de Jong in the sixties. With only six issues, the Times became one of the most exciting and playful magazines of that decade, thanks to its multilingual, transdisciplinary, and cross-cultural exuberance. The never-realised seventh issue, destined to explore the game of Pinball and its female player, is the starting point of our collaboration with XPUB and artist Lídia Pereira. During the course of this semester, the first year Master students were tasked with imagining what the seventh issue could be if it were produced today, under the guidance of Lídia and the XPUB staff. You can discover their works by finding the hotspots they installed throughout The Hague. You are invited to start your psychogeographical exploration of this distributed publication at Page Not Found, on Friday 2 April, from 12:00.

This Special Issue was created by Kendal Beynon, Martin Foucaut, Camilo García A., Clara Gradel, Nami Kim, Euna Lee, Jacopo Lega, Federico Poni, Louisa Teichmann, and Floor van Meeuwen.

We wholeheartedly thank Jacqueline de Jong for her kind interest and support in this collaboration.

Time slots of 15 minutes are available for the start of the quest at Page Not Found, after which you can continue to roam through The Hague for as long as you like until 18:00. Register for your slot here: https://www.eventbrite.nl/e/launch-i-dont-know-where-were-going-but-a-local-network-city-quest-tickets-147974320175

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.

DE PLAYER and Experimental Publishing XPUB / Piet Zwart Institute present:INPUT/OUTPUTA night about new interfaces for sound and performance arts

with: Roc Jiménez de Cisneros (EVOL) and the students of Experimental Publishing — It is time for printed circuit boards (PCB’s), patterns, deformation, imitation, stretching, remoteness, alphabets, notification, phonetics and more. Together with the students of the The Piet Zwart Institute Experimental Publishing course, we are stepping into an unstable and unknown area in which the processes and challenges for the artist are equal to those for the audience. During this evening we will present the results of a collaborative seminar on modules, in combination with different specific tools designed by Roc Jiménez de Cisneros from EVOL and other artists. This event is part of our research project ‘)HRHED(‘, in which we investigate new social and artistic interfaces for sound and performance arts. Recently, together with Spatial Media Laboratories (SML), we presented a workshop on interfacing inaudible phenomena. In our program for next year we have already scheduled full event presentations of new works, together with ITU (Anni Puolakka & Miša Skalskis), Evelin Brosi and Caz Egelie, who are also part of this research project. — ■ Roc Jiménez de Cisneros will present a brand new EVOL project called ‘SOUP’, a MIDI sequencer based on Hanne Darboven’s 1984 Opus 17A – a piece EVOL has been reworking multiple times since about five years ago, and this one is likely to be their last version. ‘SOUP’ is a little box that plays the original sequence of notes in Darboven’s piece, and lets you modify it by tweaking six knobs that alter a number of things such as length (from one note to the whole score), speed (from regular to f*cked *p) and so on… Basically, you can either play it conservatively (the same way as a pattern in an old-school synth), or play around with it and quickly turn Opus 17A into weird “techno”-sounding arpeggios and wonky sequences. In contrast to a conventional sequencer, you can not enter any notes. In that sense, the sequencer operates autonomously. It also doesn’t produce any sound on its own, but only sends out MIDI messages over USB – and it is entirely up to the user to decide what to do with them. It is a very conscious decision they made to ensure it will produce wildly different results in various hands. Only ten units have been made, all done by hand and very low-key. ■ Together with the students of The Piet Zwart Institute Experimental Publishing course, we have been researching new interfaces within the field of publishing. Over the course of one trimester, each of the students worked on their own sound module and tweaked it into their own conceptual project. No restrictions on INPUT. No restrictions on OUTPUT. This resulted into a series of ten multilingual printed circuit boards, offering different stand-alone devices which can be noodled or joined together based on customer demands. All the individual projects, as well as the whole research project, will be presented and tested on this evening. In addition to the modules, a publication is included in the form of a 30 by 30 centimeter printed circuit board containing all the background information of each individual project, plus a printed booklet with the guidelines for assembling all devices through DIY efforts. Soon available in our webshop, and during the event itself. → In below some extra liner notes to give you a glimpse of all the individual projects within this seminar: • Avital Barkai – ‘Generator’; an image maker controlled by both hardware and external sound. • Damlanur Bilgin – ‘Carbon‘; a synthesizer that uses graphite markings on paper to manipulate sound. • Sandra Golubjevaite – ’seven [‘7’]’; a straight forward .print&.read device that unfolds a poem depending on the user’s interaction with it. • Tisa Neža Herlec – ’DISTRACTION MANAGER’; a wearable “notification” generator, a stimulator for awareness, a trigger apparatus for human beings. • Max Lehmann – ‘GLARE’; an accessible, gesture controllable sound interface. • Clara Noseda – ‘remote control’; a tool for storytelling, where different narratives around the same topic can blend with each other to generate new trains of thought. • Anna Sandri – ‘VISIBILE SPEECH’; this project employs phonetic vocabularies and other oddities to visually reproduce conversations. It communicates by using constructed & non-constructed languages, human-readable and machine-readable alphabets. • Mark van den Heuvel – ‘Flakes’; an audio playback device that combines the functionalities of an analog cassette tape player and a digital sample playback module. • Ioana Tomici – ‘MODULAR LINGUISTICS’; an application based on a series of electronic objects which are programmed to speak. The words chosen to be part of its vocabularies are spoken in unison, generating new associations between terms. • Mika Motskobili – ‘TXX.uo’; a module which consolidates two contrasting radio frequency implementation modes: the RFID reader scans and sonifies the cards, while the LCD screen displays a Q-code and converts it into sound. The module also sends out binary signals. —

PZI screenings: 13:30 – 14:45

Location: Eye Filmmuseum, IJpromenade 1, 1031 KT Amsterdam

Eye on Art’s Research Labs provide scope for a new generation of curators and artists to hone their skills. Students from different art academies and universities are asked to put together a programme featuring their own work and films (including remixes) from Eye’s collection. Research Labs do not follow a strict format and often result in a cultural crossover between film and other art forms.

11.00 Rietveld Academy Wildness

12:15 Sandberg Institute Catalogue

13:30 Piet Zwart Institute Disobedient Narratives

14:45 Leiden University Cinematic Reflections

16:00 St. Joost Academy Unintended

17:15 KABK Cinema as a Dream

The best curated programme and the best work will be awarded by a student jury and a jury of Eye film professionals in a closing ceremony at 20.30.

At 21.00 the VJ Academy will close the day with the programme “Spacechangers” including 3D projection mapping, VR and Vjing.

Disobedient Narratives

From the smooth surface of chaos, to the purple hues of desert; from a day at the news stand, to a day of the troop’s return; from a poem to a memory to a dream to a failure to recall. A television breaks. A bell rings. A photograph becomes a moving image. What happens? Where will the dark pulses send us? Whose wistful whisper fills our skin with regret?

In this program of sixteen short films, makers from the Piet Zwart Institute interpret non-linearity on the screen. Fragments adhere. Entities emerge. Silence begets curiosity before reality shatters again. As the hour forks into a universe of thoughts and experiences: do we follow the command, or do we shut our eyes?

Hereby the Master Education in Arts cordially invites you to participate in the lecture/workshop Un/Chronological Timelines by Lineo Segoete from Another Roadmap to Arts Education. Another Roadmap for Arts Education is an international network of practitioners and researchers working towards art education as an engaged practice in museums, cultural institutions, educational centres and grass-roots organisations in twenty-two cities on four continents. They view arts education as deeply embedded in social and political contexts – but also as a possibility to question and transform the social. Within the lecture/workshop, working in groups, participants engage with histories of arts education from different locations and their relations.

Lineo Segoete is co-founder and co-director of Ba re e ne re Literary Arts, an NGO in Lesotho, which promotes critical literacy creative writing and storytelling. She is also co-convener of the Another Roadmap to Arts Education / Africa Cluster, freelance writer, knowledge-management consultant and a 2016/2017 Hubert H. Humphrey Fellow from Vanderbilt University in the USA. Lineo Segoete is a woman-child who engages in various forms of storytelling including writing, research and photography. Her restlessness drives her to wander in places and the head spaces of other Homo sapiens, in search of knowledge and understanding. Her curiosity and inquisitivity make her a lifelong scholar who likes love and beautiful things but also a sceptic and questioner of things.

The idea of making the Un/Chronological Timelines workshop into a card game evolved from an exercise introduced at a workshop within the Vienna Arts Education Festival in October 2017. During the game a temporary interactive timeline is constructed by the participants, including information from their own contexts. Such timeline has an un/chrono/logical character, because the elements of it are not fixed. New connections between cards are established every time they are played with. The way history is represented keeps changing and evolving and is open to be questioned, de- and re-constructed and represented in new ways. 

The workshop is presented by the Master Education in Arts, Piet Zwart Institute, Willem de Kooning Academy in collaboration with Annette Krauss and Casco Art Institute’s First Annual Assembly for commoning art institutions.

What shapes the daily routine of a telemarketing sales agent? How to go beyond the co-working model when it comes to organize a place for collaboration? What’s the territorial and political role of furniture within the semi-domestic area of the artist’s studio? Are life hacks a form of liberation or yet another burden? Together with author and designer François Girard-Meunier, the WORKNOT! collective (Arvand Pourabbasi and Golnar Abbasi), Varia, the Centre for Everyday Technology (represented by Roel Roscam Abbing, Manetta Berends and Niek Hilkmann) and XPUB (the Experimental Publishing program of the Piet Zwart Institute), we will tackle these and more questions during an evening dedicated to spaces that are at once entrepreneurial and precarious.

Life Hacks is part of Het Nieuwe Instituut’s fellowship program around the theme of ‘burn out’. As 2017 fellow Ramon Amaro states, “on the one hand, to ‘burn out’ is to stall, break, or become otherwise unusable. In other words, processes, procedure and participation simply stop working. On the other hand, ‘burn out’ is an opportunity to break open, promote action and catalyse change towards new structures and relations.” Life Hacks manifests in a series of gatherings that respond to this ambivalence by exploring the approaches and techniques adopted to design or redesign life against the backdrop of growing precarity and an intensified entrepreneurial regime. Together with theorists, practitioners and XPUB, the Experimental Publishing program of the Piet Zwart Institute, Life Hacks looks into the tensions and releases that emerge from the constant reinvention and progressive self-optimization necessary to inhabit public and private space, manage time and productivity, and tweak one’s own thoughts and feelings.

Life Hacks is curated by Silvio Lorusso, and jointly organized by HNI’s Research Department and XPUB.
