Nieuwe Vide Program 2018

From 1st of May 2015 till 31st of January 2019 I was director/curator at Nieuwe Vide art space in Haarlem (The Netherlands), working there 3,5 days a week (on a freelance basis). Nieuwe Vide is a combination of exhibition space and (25) studios. The studios are rented by artists, animation studios, graphic designers, copy writers and so on. www.nieuwevide.nl

As director/curator my tasks a.o. included:

I was founder of Nieuwe Vide’s Journal of Humanity as well and came up with the Focus Artist-concept. I also started the Soup Corner in 2016 (weekly eating soup together with people form the neighbourhood and people that hire a studio at Nieuwe Vide).

Nieuwe Vide @ Haarlemse Herfst
Dates: 28,29, 30th of September 2018
Location: Stal Vosse, Haarlem.
Curator: Lennard Dost
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)

GOLF-FESTIVAL 2018
Dates: 21st, 22nd, 23rd December 2018
GOLF was a new, three-day festival with performances, installations and lectures about the interaction between image and sound. GOLF was organised by the Haarlem based cultural organisations 37PK, Nieuwe Vide and Pletterij in cooperation with art initiative Quartair from The Hague. The festival took place at three locations in Haarlem: 37PK, Pletterij and Nieuwe Vide, where each location offered a program that matched their character and approach.
The name GOLF (Dutch for “wave”) referred to the way in which sound and light come to us, as waves, and it referred to the artists who took the stage during this festival and who were part of a wave of new, exciting experimental art forms.
