Beste mevrouw/meneer, Kunt U mij...

Thanks for the post, In this complex...

nou nou mooie expositie!


hey Marijn, vanuit Rome, super...


Naast dat dit het jaar was voor Golf Wang aka Wolf Gang aka Odd Future aka OFWGKTA. Had je ook nog A$AP en dan vooral A$AP Rocky (Harlem's underground king) de snotjongens die de Hip Hop willen domineren. Grote bekken, en zeggen dat de halve Hip Hop wereld met pensioen moet. Ze moeten de (tumblr)hype uiteraard nog waarmaken. Odd Future was live afgelopen zomer in iedergeval meer dan de moeite waard. Nu wachten op het digialbum van the internet / purple naked ladies.

Ice Cube about Eames

In the late ’80s, before he became famous as a member of the Compton, Calif., gangsta-rap group N.W.A., Ice Cube studied architectural drafting at a trade school in Arizona. This biographical detail makes the rapper’s appearance in a new video celebrating midcentury design icons Charles and Ray Eames only slightly less incongruous. via New York Times

Terugblik: Thea Djordjadze / Casualties

Persoonlijk een van de juweeltjes van dit jaar: Thea Djordjadze bij Meyer Kainer gecureerd door Nicolaus Schafhausen (dus waarschijnlijk ook mede verantwoordelijk voor de subtiele blauwe baan op de muur.


A carpet is a versatile piece of furniture used by nomads. A carpet can be taken from one place to another without difficulty. For nomads, it is also a matter of taking a piece of their "homeland" with them. Living in buildings – with or without carpets – but also living within languages, is something that we are all familiar with. Being able to speak several languages also implies being able to lead a nomadic life. The Berlin-based artist Thea Djordjadze, born 1971 in the Georgian capital Tbilis, switches in a seemingly effortless manner between Georgian, her second language Russian, German and also English. Therefore it is not surprising that carpet-like patterns weave structurally throughout her work.

Ten-day Communal Kitchen Experiment: A cooperation between W139 and Casco


-Ten-day Communal Kitchen Experiment- A cooperation between W139 and Casco, in the context of 'The Grand Domestic Revolution – User’s Manual'.


Be more than welcom at: Friday 9 December 2011.
With Cookingteams: Jan van Eyck Academie & KijkRuimte
Guest commentator: Remco Torenbosch
Lecture: #4 by C. P. Pfeffer
Starts at 18h00
W139 Amsterdam.


“…housekeeping and all matters pertaining formerly to the private sphere of the family have become a “collective” concern.” Hannah Arendt, The Human Condition (1958)




More than half a century ago, Hannah Arendt stated that in the modern world two spheres of life – the private and the public –are no longer separate and the economy is actually very much about how to keep a household. However, how much do we know about our economy? Over a century ago, American feminists started building communal kitchens in order to socialise their isolated work as well as save time for other activities such as involvement in the suffrage movement. What would we gain from such a communal kitchen today? And who is this “we”?


W139 cooperates with Casco on ‘Kitchen139’, a ten-day open kitchen and activity series. We invite all for those occupied with multiple deadlines and appointments towards the end of year, to join a collective house management where cooking, eating, talking, thinking, cleaning are all coming together. Inspiring or even more fatiguing, or possibly both?


Each evening meal will be prepared by a diversity of social and cultural initiatives, including Artists in Occupy Amsterdam, Amsterdam Dinner Movement, The Living Room(s), who will express their current works through the hospitality of cooking and serving. Each cooking process will be moderated by a host and broadcasted daily from 19.00 to 20.30 on Red Light Radio through which listeners can learn not only of the original recipes but also the materials of thoughts behind them. Parallel to the cooking sessions will be a series of daily lectures by Amsterdam based economist Claus Peter Pfeffer on his alternative economic theory ‘Plutopia - Policies for Globally Sustainable Common Wealth, aka Pfeifferism’.


Kitchen139 has been co-developed by W139 and Casco in the context of the current project exhibition The Grand Domestic Revolution – User’s Manual (GDR). In GDR exhibition, on view through 26 February 2012 at Casco in Utrecht, the private status of domestic space is questioned and new forms of life in common are searched for. Kitchen139 is conceived out of an observation of what one may call a resurgence of interest in domesticity and social change embodied by movements such as Occupy Amsterdam, who are making common domestic matters public on the Beursplein. Only 200 metres away, Kitchen139 could be considered as a differentiated, extended tent of Occupy Amsterdam and a voice in the continuous call for a grand domestic revolution today.

Moyra Davey


Moyra Davey (Canadian, born 1958) attended Montreal’s Concordia University and the University of California, San Diego. She now lives and works in New York. Photographing in The Museum of Modern Art’s library, Davey came across a book titled Coffee Coffee and was reminded of a phrase she had once written in her notebook: “The coffee shop, the library.” Her piece by that name—created for this exhibition—is one in a series of gridded works featuring analog photographs that Davey has folded like envelopes, mailed to friends, then shown complete with stamps, postmarks, and return addresses, vestiges of travel that do not exist with e-mail. Juxtaposing her own photographs—taken at MoMA, at the public library, and in cafés—with iconic coffee shop images by Bruce Davidson and Saul Leiter, Davey “links two public spaces that offer privacy, comfort and sustenance for the body and the mind,” she says.

Tauba Auerbach / Tetrachromat / Bergen Kunsthall
Nog t/m 22 dec in Kunsthall Bergen te zien. Daarna is deze reizende tentoonstelling in de Malmo Kunsthall te zien tot 10 juni 2012 en (jawel) vanaf januari 2013 dichter bij huis, namelijk in Wiels Brussel (of een zeefdruk sinds 1,5 jaar in de collectie van Remco Torenbosch).
In Tauba Auerbach’s work traditional distinctions between image, dimensionality and content collapse. Surface, specifically the larger issues surrounding topo¬logy, has been a central concern in her recent paintings, drawings, photographs and artist books. Auerbach interweaves discordant positions such as disorder and order, readability and abstraction, permeability and solidity – phenomena that are usually viewed as incompatible – into unified surfaces and volumes.
