(Postponed) InTake 2020

The second edition of InTake would take place at Quartair on the weekend of November 6-8, 2020. However, due to the covid up-rise, unfortunately we had to postpone it.

InTake – Interdisciplinary Art Forms is an annual festival which aims at bringing together works that stimulate all the human senses with the goal of creating an inclusive and deeply engaging context for its audience. 

Drawing from the idea that true interactivity always results in different outcomes, the selected artists explore the possibilities of the role of the audience – how can the public become at once material and performer?

Online expo Should I Stay or Should I Go

An online exhibition presented by iii in collaboration with Quartair.

In the hit single from 1981 Mick Jones of UK band The Clash infects us with an ear-worm: “If I go there will be trouble, if I stay it will be double”. Is the song really about an unhappy love story, or is the question pressed by the punk rocker hinting to something else?

This exhibition starts as an anthropological investigation and ends in a series of playful rituals engaging with our senses through song and food. Questions around identity and migration are viewed through the individual experiences of members of the international artist community in The Hague. Tensions experienced while living in transition between places and cultures serve as fuel for three new works.

With works by: Wen Chin Fu, Matteo Marangoni, Daniël Siegersma, Davide Tidoni

ONLINE exhibition from 29th May 2020 to 14th June, 2020
Opening on Friday, May 29th with Hoogtij #61 – the online edition

Visit the exhibition on: stay-go.nl

Special events:
29 May
| 21:00 – 23:00 online Karaoke party with Matteo Marangoni + Davide Tidoni
10 June | 19:00 online cooking workshop with Wen Chin Fu

Davide Tidoni and Matteo Marangoni in Strangers in Karaoke address the challenge of becoming familiar with a foreign culture while confronting negative stereotypes. In Tune of the Hamlets Daniël Siegersma channels his attachment to the native language of his ancestors by joining in song the different dialects of Low Saxon. Wen Chin Fu in Nederlands Gastronomisch Inburgeringsexamen responds to her experience with the process of acquiring Dutch nationality by imagining an immigration test over food culture in The Netherlands.

Should I Stay Or Should I Go is a project commissioned by Tetem and developed by iii with the participation of: Erfan Abdi, Marije Baalman, Budhaditya Chattopadhyay, Wen Chin Fu, Ji Kang, Gábor Kerekes, Lars Kynde,  Sebastiaan van ‘t Holt, Hanna Ijäs, Matteo Marangoni, Marit Mihklepp, Farah Rahman, Flora Reznik, Jonathan Reus, Ludmila Rodrigues, Daniël Siegersma, Davide Tidoni, Gabey Tjon a Tham, Sissel Marie Tonn and Philip Vermeulen.

Tune of the Hamlets by Daniël Siegersma is realised with Giovanni Salice, Isidor ten Hooven, Lester Kamstra, Willy Weerman, Herman Loning, Angela Siegersma, Reitze Brouwer, Douwe Gnodde, Herman Telgenkamp, Janny Veltman and Trijnie Groeneveld.

This exhibition is presented by iii with financial support from The Municipality of The Hague, Stroom Den Haag and The Creative Industries Fund NL.

Ex-MÊKH / Live web

Deelnemers: EX-MÊKH – Ellen Rodenberg, Maarten Schepers, Kees Koomen en gastkunstenaars: Marian Wijnvoord, Niels Post, Frans van Lent.

De kortste verbinding tussen twee punten is een rechte lijn. Zijn er meer punten dan ontstaat er al snel een web. Sommige verbindingen worden intensief gebruikt, andere bevinden zich in de periferie.

EX-MÊKH (Ellen Rodenberg, Kees Koomen en Maarten Schepers) brengt met de tentoonstelling MÊKH-web haar in 13 jaar opgebouwde netwerk in kaart.
In eerste instantie zijn kunstenaars uitgenodigd die van invloed zijn geweest op de ontwikkeling van het collectief. Deze kunstenaars zijn: Marian Wijnvoord (Berlijn), Frans van Lent (Dordrecht) en Niels Post (Rotterdam).

Het laatste weekend organiseert EX-MÊKH een Live-web met meer kunstenaars uit ons netwerk. Geen week wordt dus hetzelfde, verweving vindt plaats door toevoegingen en verschuivingen. Publiek en kunstenaars die EX-MÊKH al langer volgen, weten dat het aan te raden is om alle drie de weekends in de gaten te houden op social media. (Hier zullen acties bekend worden gemaakt).
