Vladimír Turner (1986) graduated from the Film and TV School of the Academy of Performing Arts in Prague (FAMU) in audiovisual studies, then he studied at the Studio of Intermedia Confrontation at the Academy of Arts, Architecture and Design in Prague. He has been to study stays in Buenos Aires, Valencia and Australia. In his works, he oscillates between documentary film, art in public space and activism. He does not perceive these fields as divided, trying to combine them within a whole he labels as active civic life. His works from around the world can be seen in the streets, on film screens and in galleries.
The show presents the latest work of Annika Kappner developed during a 3 months residency at Het Wilde Weten. Through painting she investigates the perception of existing visual and conceptual archetypes and thought patterns in an attempt to bridge the apparent dissociation of spiritual evolution, collective consciousness and scientific progress. Through the use of reflective material she points the focus on light as the basis of our perception and understanding of the world we live in.

Het Wilde Weten invites all friends, colleagues, guest artists, partners and brothers and sisters to join us for a toast to a new, fruitful and inspiring year!
The Doppelgänger / Dubbelganger publication!
Doppelgänger / Dubbelganger is an exchange project between Opekta Ateliers and Het Wilde Weten, two similar artist run spaces in the sister cities of Cologne (D) and Rotterdam (NL).
Over the course of the year 2013, 26 artists from both spaces had the opportunity to stay in each other’s studio building and discover each other’s cities.
The results of this extensive exchange are presented in this publication.

Presentation by our current guest artist Giacomo Garziano (IT)
When a body is sick it changes equilibrium, any method applied to cure it is actually perceived by the body as causing an imbalance initially, as an infection itself. This project seeks to generate new life, recreate a positive equilibrium, in a long abandoned space. Based on the Voronoi diagram, the furniture spreads its cells along the walls of the apartment embracing and purifying the entire space.

We hope to see you here!
