Improvisation session
with the Social Music Club
Event through May 20
On Friday the 20th of May the Social Music Club will host a public improvisation session in our exhibition Catching Up in the Archive. Everyone is invited to join in making sound and playing music.
Event through May 28
In the context of the exhibition Catching Up in the Archive, philosopher and writer Aaron Schuster leads a three-session seminar addressing contemporary problems concerning the nature of research, novel methods for the production of knowledge, and life and desire both within and without institutions.
In the run-up to the Venice Biennale, Amsterdam Art in collaboration with De Appel organises an evening about Leonora Carrington, that will take place on the 13th of April. The theme of this year’s Biennale, The Milk of Dreams, comes from the title of the book of the same name by this surrealist artist and writer. Who was Leonora Carrington? Why are more and more art lovers becoming fascinated by her work?
Publication
The new publication 'Drafting futures, remembering a building' by Rosa te Velde explores, connects and recalls the many lives of one building in Amsterdam Nieuw-West over the span of more than sixty years. Plans for the future are constantly made and unmade – what will this place become? How does this building help to understand the ideologies behind city planning, segregation and gentrification?
Livestream through January 20
de Appel's 2022 Keynote on January 17th will be presented by poet, writer and translator Mayra A. Rodríguez Castro, in which she will consider passage as a visionary interval. This event will be livestreamed on our website.
