The Second Explodes
Kunsthalle Hotel Eurocenter Lana, Italy
Friday 2 – Saturday 3, May 2014.
Jessy Rahman, Marlies Adriaanse, Elizabeth de Vaal, Erik-Jan Ligtvoet, Topp&Dubio, Ingrid Rollema, Kees Koomen, Maarten Schepers, Ellen Rodenberg, Mike Rijnierse, Ludmila Rodrigues, Stefanie Scholte, Pietertje van Splunter, Geeske Harting, Maite Louise, Diána Zékány, Csaba Nemes.
A group of artists selected by Quartair go to Lana from April 28th to May 4th in the context of a cultural exchange between Southern Tirol and Den Haag. The title, The Second Explodes, refers to a happening, apparently fleeting encounters (between artworks/public/artists), or an explosion of events that will take place within a short time span.
The explosion starts with a stream of associations. Besides showing existing artworks, the starting point for the artists will be to create site-specific work and performances. The Second Explodes is a happening, with film, performance, drawings, paintings, installations and sound. Don’t miss the artwalk on Saturday! A master of ceremonies will accompany the visitors and he will put the different happenings and artworks in the spotlight.

Theatre of Wrong Decisions
Friday, 28 February 2014, from 20:00 until 21:00
Also open during Hoogtij, 7 March 2014, from 19:00 to 23:00.
The establishment of the Theatre of Wrong Decisions – an initiative of The Hague-based sculptor Ingrid Rollema – was prompted by the breakout of the Syrian war; an indescribably cruel war with incomprehensible motives of which the end is not on the horizon.
During Theatre of Wrong Decisions’s inaugural meeting, on 28 February 2014 at Quartair Contemporary Art Initiatives (55 Toussaintkade in The Hague), artists, scientists and theorists reflected on the horrors of the Syrian war from a number of different perspectives. Speeches were given and discussions were held. To conclude the evening, a theatrical performance took place during which Macbethian madness and lust for destruction were given tangible form.
Working at the Theatre of Wrong Decisions:
Frans Zwartjes, Gerard Holthuis, Sandro Bruti, Rosh Abdelfatah, Jessy Rahman, Marsel Loermans, Yvette Commandeur, Mary Sue Siegel, Michael de Roo, Suzanne Groothuis, Paul Bruijninckx, Maite Louisa, Marlies Adriaanse, Tom Dommisse, Eva Villanueva.
