TALK: Image at War by Vasyl Cherepanyn, Visual Culture Research Center (VCRC), Kyiv, Ukraine

‘Hybrid Peace’ is project by Vasyl Cherepanyn from Visual Culture Research Center (VCRC), Kyiv, Ukraine. Through installations, screenings and discussions 'Hybrid Peace' explores the conditions of hybrid warfare through visual art and forensic knowledge.

In this introductory talk, Vasyl Cherepanyn will analyze the cultural and political context of Ukraine during the war. The talk elaborates on how public institutions are functioning in a state of war after the Maidan revolution. VCRC, a cultural institution in Kyiv since 2008, has traced how artistic, academic, and political antagonisms have developed: art has become a political subject.

Communism for Kids, Reading

Page Not Found is delighted to invite you to a reading of "Communism for Kids" by its author, Bini Adamczak.

This book presents political theory in the simple terms of a children's story, offering relief for many who have been numbed by Marxist exegesis and given headaches by the earnest pompousness of socialist politics. It proposes a different kind of communism, one that is true to its ideals and free from authoritarianism. Adamczak illustrated herself the story, showing lovable little revolutionaries experiencing their political awakening. In an epilogue, the text leaves the genre of children's literature, to provide theoretical justification about the various forms of anti-capitalist critique. In March 2017, the volume was published in English by the MIT Press, which led to vehement protests from the US alt-right and conservative circles who saw the book as an attempt to corrupt America's youth. Among others, the LA Review of Books praised the opus.

Bini Adamczak (Berlin, 1979) is a Berlin-based social theorist and artist. She writes on political theory, queer politics, and the past future of revolutions. She coined an antonym of "penetration": circlusion, conjuring a speculative shift in the framing of sexual power and politics, by assuming agency around the acts of enclosing, encircling, engulfing. She is a member of the Jour Fixe initiative berlin. She published "Past Future: On the Loneliness of Communist Specters and the Reconstruction of Tomorrow", a performative and political work of mourning, and two books, not translated in English, at the occasion of the hundredth anniversary of the Russian Revolution.

Meet and Greet the Artists ‘Continuous Diversity’

Marcel Wesdorp asked several related artists to make an exhibition together with Helder Gallery, which could illustrate this process. All works of art were specially chosen for this purpose, to relate to Wesdorp's ideas as a kind of proof, argument, representation, reflection or example. Such a process is also an exciting research, which at the same time offers ways for new insights by entering into dialogue with each other's work.

The works hang, lie and stand in the gallery space that has its own validity, its character and size. They relate to each other like, for example, singing voices do in the score of a piece of music. 'Continuous Diversity' thus illustrates a way to look at art from different artist perspectives. The viewer is invited to let those hidden inner landscapes reveal themselves.

Marcel Wesdorp creates inner landscapes using digital technology and printed in unimaginable shades of grey. He creates his world from a first idea, thereafter to be controlled by processes.

Gerco de Ruijter photographs the real world from a vertical perspective. His object is the natural and cultural landscape. Using photo technique, he imagines the earth from a bird's-eye view, without a horizon.

Ron van der Ende constructs a perspective experience of his subject on a perfect scale. He transforms second-hand timber with its own character into fantastic objects. Driven by this unique working method, he loses himself in time and space.

Robin Kolleman investigates the border area of acceptance within the physical (social) traffic between people and / or animals and the consequences and results thereof. She depicts, for example, the area between closeness and vulnerability, between violence and innocence.

Rob Verf paints a reality that arises from fanciful abstractions. His reality involves a game between virtual and real realities. Intermediate stages of human existence become visible in a digital world.

Artist: Pauline Curnier Jardin

For the background evening of the solo exhibition of Pauline Curnier Jardin, the artist has compiled an evening reflecting on her work and sources of inspiration.

Artist: Tehching Hsieh
Artist talk + ‘encounters’

In his work, Tehching Hsieh displays the difference and similarity between life and art. For him, life is about the passing of time. ‘Wasting time and free thinking’ is an issue that he examines with his art in a unique way. The observer is confronted with a story, which is both simple and strong, about the power of people. For many contemporary artists, Tehching Hsieh is something of a cult figure.

The presentation in The Hague will be accompanied by an artist talk, during which Hsieh will provide the visitors with an explanation about his work and way of thinking. The ‘Encounters’ are intended for a selection of students and other interested parties; they form a unique possibility to have a personal conversation with Tehching Hsieh.

A Fictional Turn: Anna Moreno

In May, three events will coincidentally explore how publishing artists turn to fiction. For “The Drowned Giant”, her previous project, Anna Moreno documented the reenactment of a landmark happening by producing a vinyl record, which included a booklet with texts intertwining facts and fictions. At the occasion of her forthcoming event, she will elaborate on the gesture of softening the requirements of artistic documentation with fictional devices, as instanced by her next project, involving fotonovelas.

Anna Moreno (Barcelona, 1984) lives and works in Barcelona and The Hague. She has been teaching Artistic Research at the Royal Academy of Art (The Hague) and other institutions and is a co-founder of the artists’ initiative Helicopter (The Hague). Her art practice develops through expanded events and solo exhibitions such as Billennium, Catalonia’s Architectures Association (COAC), Barcelona, 2018; D'ahir d'abans d'ahir de l'altre abans d'ahir i més d'abans encara, Fundació Blueproject, Barcelona, 2016; The Whole World Was Singing, HIAP Project Space, Helsinki, 2016 and An Awkward Game, 1646, The Hague, 2015. She has shown her work in the group shows We Are As Gods and Might as Well Get Good at It, Nieuwe Vide, Haarlem, 2018; Beehave, Joan Miró Foundation, Barcelona, 2018; En los cantos nos diluímos, Sala de Arte Joven, Madrid, 2017; Distopía General, Reales Atarazanas, Valencia, 2017: CAPITALOCEAN, W139, Amsterdam, 2016; Lo que ha de venir ya ha llegado, CAAC in Sevilla, MUSAC, at León and Koldo Mitxelena in Donostia, 2015, and Generaciones, La Casa Encendida, Madrid, 2014, among others.  Anna Moreno's work has been featured at symposia such as Visual Activism, SFMOMA, San Francisco, 2014, and United We Organize, Stroom Den Haag, The Hague, 2013.

Your truth, interpretation and nostalgia

The opening of 'Your truth, interpretation and nostalgia' takes place at Parts Project on Sunday the 5th of May! In this exhibition, both artists are Yugoslavia-born and relate to this background in their artistic practice. They hold on to and reflect on something non-existing. One refers only to the good, seductive Yugoslavia, a utopian country from the past. Whereas the other questions how media and institutions in the post-war societies create public spaces, consequently shaping collective memory.

Saša Tkačenko is living as a constant nomad in the dead nation without any solution. He does not belong anywhere and because of this, he feels like a tourist. Stemming from particular social understandings and political phenomena, the motives in his art bring the timeless to the contemporary. This is achieved through concrete references to everyday life and popular culture, quotes, objects and symbols that have a specific meaning for each of us.

Vladimir Miladinović speaks from the same background but he focuses on direct and specific events. His main interests lie with the politics of remembering, media manipulation and the creation and reinterpretation of history. His work, such as the landscape series ‘Disturbed Soil’, engages with war and post-war trauma. The images we see at first sight are beautiful landscapes, which we may enjoy without being familiar with the specific events to which it refers. This series deals with media, forensics, political and ethical identification and presentation of war crimes, but also with current transitional ideologies and art history.

Artists: Alison Yip and Becket MWN

In May, three events will coincidentally explore how publishing artists turn to fiction. Page Not Found has chosen Rijksakademie alumni Becket MWN as the first guest curator, for his text-based practice which intersects installation and speculative fiction, and his publishing activity under the nom de plume Becket Flannery. He proposed collaborating with visual artist Alison Yip on new work. Their project departs from a shared interest in feigned sequestration; doors that slam; windows that open; what "was" breakfast. The performative event takes place on the 17th of May at 18:00 hrs!

Becket MWN received his MFA from the USC Roski School of Art in 2014, and in 2016-2017 was a resident artist at the Rijksakademie van Beeldende Kunsten.

A Fictional Turn: Das Leben am Haverkamp

In May, three events will coincidentally explore how publishing artists turn to fiction. For Hoogtij#57, the collective Das Leben am Haverkamp is invited to organize an event around their work at the Zeeuws Museum, where they created an entire collection of objects, based only on audio descriptions of the museum's pieces.

The collective Das Leben am Haverkamp, formed in 2014, is composed of four designers: Anouk van Klaveren (1991), Christa van der Meer (1988), Dewi Bekker (1990) and Gino Anthonisse (1988). After their studies at the Royal Academy of Art in The Hague, the designers all set up an individual practice, operating on the cutting edge of different art disciplines, and creating together the necessary context for their unpolished fantasies and unconventional approach to fashion. This resulted in high-profile projects such as Gefelicifashion, Quirky Cruise and Bravado - A pretentious, swaggering display or courage. For the latter, the collective received a Dutch Design award in the Fashion category in October 2017, in addition to being nominated in the Young Designer category.

Projects from the collective members have been shown during Salone del Mobile in Milan, London Fashion Showcase, Centraal Museum Utrecht, Gemeentemuseum Den Haag, Boom City in Chengdu in China, Dutch Design Week and as opening show of the Amsterdam FashionWeek.
