Vernissage + authentic party: Friday 29 January 20:00h
Open: 30 + 31 January 15:00h – 22:00h
Location: Het Wilde Weten
The Authentic Boys work and experiment with images and themes, which are derived from everyday life. With their work they playfully illuminate the fictitious layers of reality and the authentic moments in the theater, surrounding us.
During the International Film Festival Rotterdam the Authentic Boys install a composition of five video works in which they connect film and video-art with physical acts and performance.
The collective Authentic Boys was founded in Altay (Siberia) in 2007 and consists of Aaike Stuart (Rotterdam), Boris van Hoof (Rotterdam), Gregory Stauffer (Geneva) and Johannes Dullin (Berlin). Hanging out in time and space was previously shown in Berlin, Locarno, Oslo and Stavanger.
Hanging out in time and space is kindly supported by:
Gemeente Rotterdam, Dienst Kunst en Cultuur

Last year a dynamic love-affair developed between the Brussels based exhibition space SECONDroom and the Rotterdam based artist-run space Het Wilde Weten. During the exchange the plan was to flirt, to bring out many toasts and to secretly approach each other. How one thing leads to another……….

Opening in Foam (3h), Amsterdam
Deze tentoonstelling toont werk van twee fotografen die hun visie geven op het (stedelijke) landschap. In de tentoonstelling tonen zij ons een subjectieve ervaringswereld die de werkelijkheid overtreft. Als het ware betoveren zij deze werkelijkheid en laten de rijkdom, maar ook de vervreemding zien.
Tijdens de opening zal de publicatie ‘Commonness’ van Dieuwertje Komen worden gepresenteerd. Deze publicatie wordt uitgegeven door Fw: en bevat een tekstessay van architect Martino Tattara.

Artist Talk by: ELIZABETH ROWE (UK)
Thursday October 8 at 19.30 (please join us for a bite and a drink starting from 19:00)
Rowe makes work from material she accumulates. Things that are given to her, objects she finds in the streets or buys from 2nd hand shops, newspapers, magazines and free advertising. Through a range of processes such as cutting up, reassembling or drawing over, she attempts to control the mass of stuff she gathers and to edit her self into the work.

This program brings together a selection of work which questions what happens when fiction or memory become a necessity to articulate place and situate it. Whether the sense of a site has been forcefully snatched away by war, displacement or aggressive real estate development or whether the artificiality of a place locates it as devoid of history and begs for a chronology to be constructed. The videos, though very different in aesthetics and approach, all reflect in a poetical fashion on issues of ownership, narrative appropriation, and remembrance. For indeed, who owns the stories of these specific (sub)urban sites, their past and their future? And who is allowed to tell?
