Programme series: Broadcasting from Babylon

Framer Framed is happy to announce its collaboration in the public programme series Broadcasting From Babylon Amal Alhaag, Maria Guggenbichler and Josien Pieterse, focusing on intersectional feminist, queer, and anti-colonial embodied, listening and sounding practices, which are broadcasting from Babylon, Fort EU. Taking place between 21 January – 15 March 2019.

The programme consists of (informal) public learning situations such as workshops, walks, seminars, bike rides, boat rides, reading groups, decolonial consciousness raising groups, dance moves, parties. The gatherings take place mostly at independent initiatives, across the city of Amsterdam. Framer Framed will host seven meetings in collaboration with Netwerk Democratie, on Thursdays between 2 – 5 PM, on the topic of ‘Citizenship and Cultural Production’.

Citizenship and Cultural Production sessions:
Thursdays from 2-5 PM: 24 January, 31 January, 7 February, 14 February, 21 February, 28 February, 7 March

In these meetings we will investigate how citizenship informs cultural production, and how different forms of social engagement and place-making are currently developed by reclaiming and rewriting democracy through cultural self-representation and production. What can cultural practitioners learn from social movements, hackers, squatters and open-source activists?

Each week Josien Pieterse (Framer Framed/Netwerk Democratie) and Anne de Zeeuw (Netwerk Democratie) invite a different guest to look into themes such as authority of the other, oral history (listening and power), radical openness, choices and consequences. The meetings will take place at both Framer Framed, project space Werkplaats Molenwijk and other locations across the city. The first session kicks off on Thursday January 24th, with a ‘field trip’ to Plein ’40-’45. Our special guest for this session is urban planner and researcher Joachim Meerkerk.
