Information evening: Open Call Hidden (Hi)stories
On Thursday, 20 July 2023, the Creative Industries Fund NL and the Nieuwe Instituut are jointly organising an information evening in the context of the Open Call and work/learning trajectory Hidden (Hi)stories.
20 July 2023 17:00 - 19:00
Hidden (Hi)stories is focused on uncovering hidden stories through design, and rendering these, and issues relating to them, visible, tangible and discussable. Which legacies, places and perspectives have so far been concealed, neglected or remain hidden? What does narrating, representing and collecting “otherwise” mean for communities to which these hidden (hi)stories relate?
During this hybrid event, Setareh Noorani (Nieuwe Instituut), Mireille de Koning and Roxanne da Graça (Creative Industries Fund NL) will speak with researchers and designers to reflect on the theme of the Open Call Hidden (Hi)stories.
Rifandi Nugroho (gudskul), Robin Hartanto Honggare (arsitektur indonesia) and Gesya Namora (gudskul) started the project 'Resituating Colonial Archives', within Collecting Otherwise. Resituating Colonial Archives are a series of workshops and public presentations in which eight researchers and architecture and artists' collectives from different parts of Indonesia investigated the country's built environment and its intertwining with the colonial past and present. Rifandi Septiawan Nugroho is a researcher and occasional curator working along the intersection between architecture, art and everyday life. Robin Hartanto Honggare is a PhD candidate in Architectural History at Columbia University’s Graduate School of Architecture, Planning, and Preservation. Gesyada Annisa Namora Siregar is an artist and curator, and initiator of Buka Warung, a young female artists collective from Jakarta, and part of Jakarta 32°C, a division of ruangrupa.
Visual artists Cihad Caner and Ulufer Çelik will talk about their research into piracy, ways of being and methods of navigation. This research departs from a sailboat relief found on the Katendrechtse Lagedijk in Rotterdam, connecting it to sites in Istanbul and New York. Cihad Caner is an artist living and working in Rotterdam and Istanbul. Ulufer Çelik is a Turkish artist, who lives and works in Rotterdam, Netherlands.
