The Hague Contemporary Art Weekend

The Hague is full of experimental artists’ initiatives, art spaces, galleries and exciting museums. To celebrate this, the third edition of The Hague Contemporary Art Weekend will take place from 10 – 12 September. In collaboration with more than 18 art institutions and initiatives from The Hague, and together with the Royal Academy of Art The Hague (KABK Den Haag) Graduation Show, the weekend will be filled with events, exhibitions, performances, openings, art tours, artist talks and more. The Grey Space in the Middle will present the following program:

Thursday
10:00 – 23:00 (ongoing) – RNDR – re:place (installation)
10:00 – 23:00 (ongoing) – WYSIWYG – Screen Reflection (installation)
18:00 – 21:00 – Karel van Laere – Casting (installation)
18:00 – 21:00 – Thursday Dinner Session – Anastasia Loginova + Sophia Bulgakova (dinner, make a reservation here)
21:00 – 23:00 – DutchAfro (dj)

Friday
10:00 – 23:00 (ongoing) – RNDR – re:place (installation)
10:00 – 23:00 (ongoing) – WYSIWYG – Screen Reflection (installation)
18:00 – 21:00 – Karel van Laere – Casting (installation)
21:00 – late – music program t.b.a.

Saturday
10:00 – 02:30 (ongoing) – RNDR – re:place (installation)
10:00 – 02:30 (ongoing) – WYSIWYG – Screen Reflection (installation)
21:00 – 02:30 – Radio Tonka (music, find the program here)

Karel van Laere is a performance and video artist who explores bodily boundaries and tests his own endurance. A recurring theme in his work is the opposition between the human body and technological systems. ‘Casting‘ is a sculptural installation, specifically realized for The Hague Contemporary Art Weekend. In this work, he explores current issues such as the human right to breathe clean air, the present topic of distancing and isolation, and the connection between safety and invisibility. ‘Casting‘ has been made possible with the support of We Are Public / In Art We Trust, Stroom Den Haag and The Grey Space in the Middle.

‘re:place’ is a new real-time interactive installation by RNDR that will camouflage and erase all persons passing by the windows of The Grey Space in the Middle. Open 24/7, the installation is a reaction to the new reality we live in since the start of COVID-19 and the measures taken by governments worldwide to limit the number of infections: ‘social distancing’, lockdowns, and (self-) quarantine. ‘re:place‘ has been made possible with the support of the City of The Hague and The Grey Space in the Middle.

Cinema Platform WYSIWYG (What You See Is What You Get) offers another option for watching film from the outside in. As WYSIWYG enjoys questioning and playing with other ways of presenting film, this screening investigates the ambiguous space between a solution and a temporary fix. ‘Screen reflection’ shows the works of Mark Prendergast and Jean-Baptiste Castel.

Veenfabriek in the Attic

Veenfabriek in the Attic (Zoldersessies) is an intimate music theatre session that was created in the corona period and contains beautiful texts, upbeat songs, modern dance and an awesome installation of old radio’s. It is a corona-proof program about longing to belong, to be in touch with others. You will hear songs that together are an associative ode to all we have always found natural and obvious. The current times made us realise just how important some things are. Meeting each other, touching each other, eating together, dancing, loving…

Concept, texts, music: Milena Haverkamp, John van Oostrum, Joeri Vos, Bastiaan Woltjer, Roland Haufe, Ruta van Hoof
With: Jacobien Elffers, Milena Haverkamp, Roland Haufe, Ruta van Hoof, John van Oostrum, Bastiaan Woltjer and Niki Verkaar

The Disappearing Wall

The Disappearing Wall is a project for which a collection of 200 quotes by Europeans were printed onto 6.000 blocks, placed in a large and transparent wall installation. Visitors can read the quotes and take one home. What remains at the end is just the transparant frame. The Disappearing Wall is a project of the Goethe-Institut and is supported by the German Ministry of Foreign Affairs. It symbolises the diversity of Europe and the ideas of its inhabitants.

The Flying Cow consists of Stef van Es (guitar), Andor Horvath (double bass), Augusto Pirodda (synthesizer), Ben Weiss Levi (tenor sax) and Rene Winter (drums).

(Cancelled) CaDance Festival | Motus Mori | Katja Heitmann

A study of the archives of mankind shows a one-sided view of humanity; a view centred on measurability. We reduce man to comparable data, to categorical differences. But is that how we want to be remembered? Choreographer Katja Heitmann wants to create an archive where the most essential, paradoxical and intangible qualities of man are kept. ‘An archive for movement’; after she recorded and shared the movements of inhabitants of cities such as Düsseldorf, Utrecht, and Tilburg, The Hague has now been invited to contribute to this initiative. During CaDance an impressive archive for human movement will be created in the exhibition space of The Grey Space. Nine performers keep the movements of the Hague going five hours every day.

(Online) Moving Downstairs

[ghosts appear occasionally]

Slowly rising from hibernation, we are collaborating with sound artist Hilde Wollenstein for this first online edition of Moving Downstairs.

Moving Downstairs is a bi-monthly program that focuses on concerts, auditory performances and experiments, immersive sound pieces and collective experiences. Depending on the setting, the audience might be seated, standing, dancing, behind a screen, or specifically placed inside the basement of The Grey Space.

With the intention to explore a particular, individual sense of sound within a clear, collective structure, Hilde has written a score for eight performers, following a continuous dream narrative.

Pay as you like and join the Livestream on Mixcloud.
