Exhibition: Molenwijk Originals

TuncTop is our artist in residence at Werkplaats Molenwijk since October. The first thing he did in Molenwijk was opening a cinema called ‘Onze Bioscoop’ to meet his new neighbors. After spending almost 2 months in Molenwijk, screening movies with the smell of fresh pop-corn, having conversations, drinking coffee together with locals, and of course filming a lot, he is ready to share his video and poster series with you which is made together with Molenwijkers.

TuncTop met many people during his stay in Molenwijk: food vendors, kids, youngsters, old ladies, Afghani, Syrian, Ugandan newcomers… Each character had a very special persona and an interesting story to tell. TuncTop had only one question for his new neighbors: What’s gonna’ happen in 2050?
According to the answers he created a video and poster series called Molenwijk Originals. Even though it looks like Netflix from far away it’s not. If you come and visit Werkplaats Molenwijk on 6th December at 17:00, you will see 50% fiction 50% real world of Molenwijk designed by TuncTop and the locals in the neighborhood.
