Archive, Research, Exhibition

MVRDVHNI: The Living Archive of a Studio explores the archive of architecture office MVRDV.

In their installation in the basement, they use various media to sketch a collective 'portrait' of club culture and the feeling of being one with the surroundings and each other. After a forced period without nightlife, visitors can (re)experience the togetherness and collective joy of music and dance.

Home of Your Own

18 Nov 2021 — 13 Mar 2022

Met hun multimediale installatie IF WALLS COULD TALK grijpen de kunstenaars, ontwerpers en programmamakers van (A)WAKE de derde editie van Home of Your Own aan voor een bespiegeling op het nieuwe maatschappelijke weefsel dat we tijdens de coronapandemie hebben geweven. Geïnspireerd door het gezegde dat ‘de muren op je af komen’, confronteert de installatie de bezoeker met behulp van virtual reality met dit nieuwe maatschappelijke weefsel. In de VR-ervaring maken bezoekers kennis met de zawiya (vrij te vertalen als ‘de hoek’), een term die in de Maghreb en West-Afrika wordt gebruikt voor een plek om conflicten binnen de gemeenschap te verzamelen en op te lossen.

The Future Through Artificial Eyes

20 Years of VPRO Tegenlicht

Archive, Research, Exhibition

20 Feb — 26 Jun 2022

Visions of the future change with technological and social developments. In this installation by researcher and designer Richard Vijgen, visitors can examine future visions from the past 20 years with the help of artificial intelligence. By playing with the ‘eyes’ with which the computer views the archive of the future-themed TV programme VPRO Tegenlicht, you experience how it processes information. What patterns does it ‘see’ in 555 VPRO Tegenlicht broadcasts?
