Join us this Saturday 24 June from 7:30 till 9:30 pm for the last event hosted by New Urban Collective as part of 'The Black Archives on Tour: Hidden Stories of Black Resistance in the Netherlands' during 'Cinema Olanda: Platform' .
During the event 'Black Archives, Black Radicalism Session' Dr. Kehinde Andrews will discuss black radicalism, and what role black radicals played in Europe, to sketch the historical context in which the Huiswouds existed. What is black radicalism, and how can it be understood in contemporary society? How were black radicals from different countries, continents and generations connected? And what lessons can we learn from them for contemporary activism and political action?
Dr. Kehinde Andrews is involved in developing the first Black Studies course in Europe, it will start in september 2017. “We need to reconnect with the politics of blackness. We should not be ashamed of the word ‘black’.” (...) Dr Palmer added that the work of several black feminist thinkers would be at the core of the degree. They include such names as Audre Lorde, Kimberle Crenshaw, bell hooks, Hazel Carby, Claudia Jones and Patricia Hill Collins. (...) .

Through the format of the talkshow, Quinsy Gario (Artist, Poet) aims to provide insights and perspectives with which to enrich the public debate in the Netherlands. Initiated in 2012 as a show on the multicultural Amsterdam-based radio station MART Radio, two years later it became a television talkshow on the Caribbean and South American centered cable channel RTV-7 and YouTube. The talkshow has been recorded at the Hugo Olijfveldhuis, which is owned by the Vereninging Ons Suriname (Society Our Suriname). For Cinema Olanda: Platform, Gario will record new episodes of 'ROET IN HET ETEN' on Tuesday 27 June and Saturday 1 July. Previous episodes are screened in the exhibition.

This Saturday 24 June the Black Archives present their second event 'LOSON: The Hidden Story of Radical Surinamese Movements in the 1970s and 80s' from 1:30 till 4:30 pm. Please note: this event is Dutch spoken only. Tickets via link in bio.
Did you know that in the 1970s, in cities such as Amsterdam and Rotterdam, an (informal) ‘spreidingsbeleid’ or ‘spreading policy’ was active that excluded Surinamese from certain neighbourhoods? Did you know that there was an (informal) policy in Amsterdam that only one Surinamese, Turkish or Moroccan family could inhabit a apartment block? Did you know that there were radical Surinamese emancipation movements active in the 1970s and 1980s that organized against racism and inequality and, among other things, squatted a flat in the Bijlmer? Chances are you did not, because these stories and histories have long been hidden. The New Urban Collective has found books and documents in the Black Archives that reveal these hidden stories of black emancipation movements spearheaded by organisations such as the National Organisation of Surinamese in the Netherlands (LOSON) and Surinamese Laborers and Workers Organization (SAWO) .
This event is part of 'The Black Archives on Tour: Hidden Stories of Black Resistance in the Netherlands' (17 – 25 June), and 'Cinema Olanda: Platform' program.
Dark matter remains one of the great mysteries of science. Already in the 1930s, Swiss astronomer Fritz Zwicky used the term to acknowledge that there was more mass in the objects he was observing than could be seen. Indeed, dark matter remains an invisible force that can only be accessed in theory. Over the course of two years, Macuga visited the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) where she conducted interviews with scientists as part of her ongoing investigation into different modes of research and collaboration. It was at CERN that Macuga first met Prof. Bilge Demirköz, before later introducing Öğüt to her. In this optically distorted, spatially warped room, a recorded conversation between Öğüt and particle physicist Prof. Bilge Demirköz can be heard.
For the full recording and spatial experience you van visit 'Öğüt 🔧 Macuga 🔨' with first edition steered by Ahmet Öğüt until 20 August 2017.

Even gedag zeggen tegen @wijkagent_bmunne. Een wijkagent die dag en nacht paraat staat voor onze veiligheid én een prachtmens is. Behoefte aan een gesprek met Bas Munne? Of zijn collega Maria Elfers? Vanmiddag staan ze, ondanks dat het stervensheet is, met hun mobiele wijkpost op de Witte de Withbrug. Van 13.00 tot 15.00 uur.
De rest van de week zijn ze ook overal in de stad - check Bas op Twitter voor de locaties en tijden.
