>> a moving picture of a dead cop <<

_ a.k.a. do fictive images have tangible consequences? _

On Sunday, 14 January, we have rejoined with belit sağ to explore informally, associatively and collaboratively the politics of images; what they mean to us and how they affect us, our lives and realities.

This performative talk was the last part of “Guests, Ghosts and Gardening” encounters.

GUESTS
GHOSTS
&
GARDENING

The series of encounters Guests, Ghosts & Gardening will open on October 1st with the exhibition at Klupko’s current homey setting. The title derives from the five previous encounters that took place in between scenes. They involved re-staging the intimate core of hosted art practices.

Klupko’s new encounters are now continuing its politics of hospitality and gentle slowing down for the general public too. Six artists will come together to interrelate their experiences of everyday echoing the outside world and its histories. belit sağ will join us with her essayist approach towards politics and poetics of media images, as well as sites of daily life excluded by the same media. She also invited Mehraneh Atashi‘s investigations of entangled life in which personal micro cosmos concur to the shaping of reality, changing the past and the memory. Our close neighbors and friends will contribute as well: Lisa Smithson will show a few gardening drawings, while Laura Wiedijk is tuning pareidolia of white noise and flower whispers. Teresa Maria Diaz Nerio will bring in a sculptural intervention dealing with how we construct shelters and symbolic homes during childhood, and how playfulness can be applied to overcome fears and hauntings.

As a follow up, on October 14th, a performance with belit sağ will take place in the Klupko house. Soon after, on October 16th, Marianna Maruyama will perform a gardening intervention in the nearby gravel lot.
All artists will re-join with Klupko hosts Go-Eun Im and Igor Sevcuk, together with Ana Nikitovic, Lore Gablier and other guests for additional talks, screenings and performances planned on October 23rd @ Goleb.

hosting the m/other voices: field trip #12

HOSTING the M/OTHER VOICES: Field Trip #12

date: 5 July, 2016 _ _ _ _ _ _ _ time: 7pm _ _ _ _ _ _ place: klupkorooms / amsterdam

 

The m/other voices are a base for critical reflection on how the two different modes of labor – that of mothering and that of participating in the art world – co-exist in ones daily life and the strategies implied within. The Field Trips are informal gatherings based on mutual exchange and engagement, through which a common vocabulary and a collective understanding of contemporary sociopolitical issues related to art- and maternal labor can be built upon. One of the tasks for the Field Trip participants has been to reflect on their art practice from an axis between their mothering labor and their art production labor. The presentations can take form in various ways and up to now they have included performance, sculptural installation, re-enactments, presentation of archives, talks and more. http://www.mothervoices.org

 

Field Trip #12

Shira Richter is a feminist artist, independent scholar and artivist. She is the director of an award winning adventure film ‘Two States of Mind’ about women’s and mother’s voices regarding the Palestinian-Israeli conflict, creator of photography exhibitions and installations about the value and status of mothers in society, a writer, visual performance lecturer, curator and advocate for gentle and ethical communication. Her projects act as an interface- or “multi-bridge” between academic knowledge, art, and contemporary activism. “Walking the Talk in my everyday life is the challenge”. She lives in Israel with her partner, two children and three cats.

Rootprints, with Mahmoud Bakhshi & Christine Moldrickx

ROOTPRINTS

The new Klupko encounters welcome Mahmoud Bakhshi and Christine Moldrickx to  abdicate our domestic dominion once again: making room for guests, those most elusive of beings who come – between us – to be at home.

The current exhibition with Mahmoud and Christine is situated in Da Costabuurt in Amsterdam.
It is open from 10 May-12 June, from Monday to Sunday, 1-6 pm.
You will receive details on ‘how to arrive’ upon mailing your visiting date and time to: klupkorooms@gmail.com.

Exhibition:

Rootprints consider both very elusive and very proximate – ghostly –  relationships. It is on the occasion of this ghostly other that “I” catch sight of “me”; or “we” catch sight of “us” at an unknown time and place.

Mahmoud Bakhshi employs a “reversed blow-up” to retrace the curious found footage of motionless workers in the forest, lost in history and now here again, leading us to the ‘nowhere’ of an interpersonal space. Christine Moldrickx joins us with a few interventions, as starting point, the print of her father and his father standing motionless on their family’s acre. Other prints are ‘holding’ the snippets with words, collected and forgotten in-between translations, in their anarchic state re-entering language – forest containing all the roots.

During our talks we have referred to Klupko’s bookshelves, while our working title is derived from Hélène Cixous’ book Rootprints, Memory and Life Writing. As an extra reference we have watched and decided to include the video Lost Village. This work considers Igor Sevcuk’s family expedition into the woods of Bosnia, in search for the spot where the found footage – a photograph of a church community from the beginning of the previous century – was taken.

In the resulting network of rootprints the manifold other is resonating within us. It is our friend, lover, co-traveler, or a presence from the region of nowhere: from the everywhere of thought. Not only are we in space, but also in time, collecting and recollecting what no longer is present, anticipating what is not yet.

Upcoming:

Parallel to the exhibition in the Klupko’s base, during the months of May and June we will organize a few excursions and interventions with artist friends at our Bijlmer garden. This will entail follow-ups at Klupko’s house too: stay tuned!

We hope to see you at Klupko sometime soon,

Time Dispossessed: C.A., with Maurizio Buquicchio & Lore Gablier, February 14

table.png

 

TIME DISPOSSESSED: C.A.

After the performance (Surface Rising, with k.g. Guttman) and the exhibition (The Incomplete Contents of Table, with Marianna Maruyama, k.g. Guttman & friends) Klupko follows a thread, whose fibers are held together by the choice, or the necessity of reimagining cultural practice in a transitional work-life environment and an intuitive interpersonal dialectic.

On Sunday February 14th, Klupko is pleased to invite you to the shared time, talk and screening of Jeanne Dielman, 23, quai du Commerce, 1080 Bruxelles, by Chantal Akerman (1975, 3h 21min).

The day will start at 11 am with a short introduction by Maurizio Buquicchio and Lore Gablier, followed by the screening. After that we will have one hour and a half to go out of the confined projection space, to spend time differently and possibly ruminate on film. Once returned, we will have a talk with the possibility for anyone to use text, clips or images that they believe could add some elements to the discussion.

Please note the number of seats is limited – do let us know if you are coming: klupkorooms@gmail.com.

The current Klupko situation is in Da Costabuurt in Amsterdam. More details will follow after your confirmation mail.

Chantal Akerman often questioned about her use and representation of time in her films and installations, in different occasions stated: “All you have is time. In my films you are aware of every second passing by. Through your body. You are facing yourself… You’re face to face with the Other. It’s from this crucial face-to-face that your sense of responsibility begins… That’s my idea of ethics. It’s why I want equality, always, between the image and the spectator. Or the passage from one unconscious toward the other.”

The filmmaker’s production always dealt controversially with the relationship between the subject and the physical and social space surrounding it. The feeling of estrangement and, at the same, time sheer presence conveyed by her films, her truly experimental approach, rigorous and yet unconstrained by the dogmatic principles of movements or manifestos, have contributed to sketch the elusive figure of an artist impossible to ascribe to a simplistic critical framework. This is why this encounter will not have the presumption of defining Chantal Akerman, or build the foundations of a mausoleum to her memory, with a mere homage to her work. Through the vision of Jeanne Dielman we will discuss her figure, her work and how they might relate to our own cultural practices.

We hope to see you around Klupko this time or sometime soon!

The Incomplete Contents of Table, with Marianna Maruyama, k.g. Guttman & friends, Nov20-Jan17

THE

INCOMPLETE

CONTENTS

OF

TABLE

Clearing the table, but not the content. A conventional table of contents is usually written after the content has been decided upon. Our table is incomplete, it precedes the content, and it’s without a timeline – belonging to the future as much as it does to the past and present. Marianna Maruyama will offer a few works and studies configured for Klupko, and attend to the contents that already are and those to come. It is no coincidence that traces of  performance Surface Rising, the five opening days with k.g. Guttman, will also be on view. Surface Rising is now ongoing and it is fully booked.

You can visit The Incomplete Contents of Table from 20th November till 17th January, Friday to Sunday from 1-6 pm.

The current Klupko situation is in Da Costabuurt in Amsterdam. You will receive ‘how to arrive’ details upon mailing: klupkorooms@gmail.com

The third Klupko encounter is coming soon: Screening in Memory of a Filmmaker (c.a.), introduced by Maurizio Buquicchio in conversation with Lore Gablier, date not fixed.

We hope to see you around Klupko this time or sometime soon!
