Haarlemse Herfst
Dates: 28,29, 30th of September 2018
Location: Stal Vosse, Haarlem.
Artist: Bernardo Zanotta. Zanotta was Nieuwe Vide’s Focus Artist 2018. The Focus Artist concept was initiated by me and started in 2016. From 2016 on each year there was 1 artist with whom we collaborated intensively. He/she got a solo-project, participated in group exhibitions, and represented Nieuwe Vide at an art fair.Zanotta also represented Nieuwe Vide at Haarlemse Herfst 2018 festival and helped with organising the exhibition of USA filmmaker Damon Packard (that opened in February 2019).
Curator: Lennard Dost
Concept: Nieuwe Vide presented artist/filmmaker Bernardo Zanotta during the Haarlemse Herfst festival 2018. His video installation ‘Second Dawn’ (2018) transformed Riding School Vosse in Haarlem into a theatre in which a science fiction story unfolds. The video was based on Arthur C. Clarke’s similar titled proze story from 1951. Zanotta’s film had the structure of a story in a story: on the one hand it was related to Clarke’s original text, on the other hand the process of dehumanization between two actors was recorded, the loss of own perspective and the transformation of an almost beastly community into a technological civilization.

WE ARE AS GODS AND MIGHT AS WELL GET GOOD AT IT
date: 7th of Sept – 4th of nov 2018
About: Whole Earth Catalog. Whole Earth Catalog was a paper guide, founded and published by Stewart Brand, between 1968 and 1972, and loved by hippies and supporters of the counterculture. Brand studied biology at Stanford University in California, design at the San Francisco Art Institute and photography at San Francisco State University, and played an important role in counterculture in the California of the sixties of the last century and specifically in the San Francisco Bay Area. In his Whole Earth Catalog he wrote about ecology, but also about new technologies and the relationship between the two. Brand strongly believed in the power of self-training and the new technology, and as such, for example, coined the term ‘personal computer’. With ‘We are as gods and might as well get good at it’ we investigate the legacy and current significance of Whole Earth Catalog exactly 50 years after the creation of the magazine.
Curator: Lennard Dost
Artists: Anna Moreno, Koen Kloosterhuis, Seamus Nolan, Azahara Cerezo, Delphine Bedel & Luke Nyman (in collaboration with Studio A-Z)

A World Crafted out of Conspiracy and Cabals
Artist: Damon Packard
Dates: 8th of February – 10th of March 2019
Curator: Lennard Dost
Nieuwe Vide kicked off its program on absurdism with the first international solo exhibition by American filmmaker Damon Packard. An artist who excels in absurd horror and makes parodies of the work of world-famous directors, such as George Lucas (The Untitled Star Wars Mockumentary, 2003). Packard is an absolute outsider both to the art and the film world. After struggling for years to complete films out of his own pocket, he received a large inheritance when a relative died, which he spent on Reflections of Evil (2002), a long treatise on contemporary American paranoia. His work is DIY and accepts no limits. He belongs to the wild fauna of Los Angeles and his films are located somewhere between arthouse cinema and video art.
Packard remains relatively obscure to the public. He is known for his pessimistic view of the movie business, often commenting on how directors have no control of their work and that artistic vision in Hollywood is always sacrificed for profit. He also claims that creativity in film largely vanished after the end of the 1970s.
A strong affiliation to the work of John Waters and the brothers George and Mike Kuchar can be found in Packard’s work. The Kuchar brothers were pioneers in the American underground film scene of the 1960s, being part of the same scene as artist Andy Warhol and filmmaker Stan Brakhage. Their work is campy, low budget and is full of over-the-top satire. While Waters and these other makers, distance themselves from the ‘mainstream’, Packard looks for that mainstream, albeit in a completely idiosyncratic way. Having pop culture, consumerism and the blockbuster as his starting point.

At the opening Cine.nl/Schokkend Nieuws filmjournalist Theodoor Steen gave an introduction on Damon Packard.

Lecture day: 15:00-18:00, Saturday 9 March
Lecture by Theodoor Steen
Screening of Doggie Woggiez! Poochie Woochiez!

EXTRA
On Saturday afternoon, 9 March, Theodoor Steen gave a presentation ‘Theo Talks Trash’ and the film Doggie Woggiez! Poochie Woochiez! by Everything is Terrible was screened. Theodoor Steen is a film journalist and programmer with extensive knowledge of Trash Cinema. Until recently he was programmer for Breda B-, Underground and Trash Filmfestival. At this moment he writes for Cine.nl and Schokkend Nieuws and is mainly interested in how image language can be used to convey messages. In his lecture he showed this also is the case for Trash-culture. Doggie Woggiez! Poochie Woochiez! is a surrealist remake of Alejandro Jodorowsky’s 1973 film, “The Holy Mountain,” consisting entirely of borrowed clips from countless dog films.

Nieuwe Vide at Supermarket 2019
Artist: Data Bosma
Location: Supermarket Art Fair, Stockholm (Sweden)
Dates: 4-7 April 2019
Curator: Lennard Dost


Nieuwe Vide presented artist Data Bosma at Supermarket Art Fair 2019, Stockholm, Sweden. Bosma uses a large variety of media in her installations which results in creating a space or atmosphere. Her work researches the humane aspect in technology and on the web. Often the work is about desire or obsession shown afterwards in offline sculptures and spaces with the same intensity. Her most recent works go into the habit to observe certain online images constantly, within the security of their home, in search of things to feel a certain emotion or revisiting a certain memory. The spaces she creates evoke the same emotions but in a exaggerated manner, resulting into sometimes absurd or conflicting ambiences. Earlier she ao. curated the Pavillon: PINK PINK MOON for The wrong in 2018. FYI: The Wrong is the largest and most comprehensive biennale celebrating digital art today. https://thewrong.org/
SUPERMARKET is an international artist-run art fair that provides a showcase of artists’ initiatives from all over the world with the aim to display their unique projects and ideas, create opportunities for new networks on the Swedish and international art scene, and share the passion and vitality that are present in this sphere of the art world.https://www.supermarketartfair.com/

The presentation of Data Bosma won the Super M award for best fair stand.

The world of K., or the prophecy of the excesses of modern bureaucracy
Artists: Michiel Westbeek, Daniël Dennis de Wit, Ivette ‘Mrova’ Zub, Elly Scheele & Carlijn Voorneveld
Dates: 26th April- 23rd June 2019
Curator: Lennard Dost

The world of K., or the prophecy of the excesses of modern bureaucracy’ was based on Franz Kafka’s book Der Prozess. Kafka (1883-1924) wrote the book between 1914 -15 and it was posthumously published in 1925. Der Prozess tells the story of bank clerk Jozef K who is arrested one morning without any apparent reason. Unclear legal proceedings are taken against him and he ends up in an absurdist world of obscure law court attendants and endless bureaucracy.
How can we read and interpret a book like Der Prozess in this day and age? What is the role of absurdism within the context of our current political situation? Or is politics itself perhaps becoming a Kafkaesque scenario? The artists in ‘The world of K., or the prophecy of the excesses of modern bureaucracy’, all reflected in their own way on themes from Kafka’s work. Specially for this exhibition they created new work in which both literature and social responsibility played a role.
