Update BERM/DATE

Basje Boer is a writer and artist. She studied photography at the Gerrit Rietveld Academie, graduating in 2003.
In her short stories, as well as her poems and pictures, she takes ordinary events and objects out of the context of daily life, thereby creating an atmosphere that’s strange and unexpected, bordering on the absurd. Another recurring theme in her work is identity.
At BERM/DATE Basje Boer is reciting one of her writings, inspired on a series of pictures by Mariken Wessels: 'Monument'.

BERM/DATE 2011

We are dating!

BERM is an art initiative founded by Marieke Zwart and Lotte Nijhof, active at Krugerplein in the east of Amsterdam for 2 years. It is a creative platform, organizing monthly exhibitions, workshops and other projects. BERM would like to meet more artists, designers, art collectives, poets, musicians, etc. to exchange ideas and perhaps build a working relationship in the future. BERM is going to DATE! For the entire month of November, we offer a space to make new connections, exchange ideas and get inspired.

BERM invites you to not only take part in the dating experience but also to propose work, ideas or events that can be exhibited or take place during the month in our space at Krugerplein. We are on the lookout for creative individuals or groups who would like the opportunity to present their work and/or ideas to a public. BERM will offer a platform for small exhibitions, performances (art/music), lectures, workshops, etc. It is a platform to network and meet new people from different creative background.

If you would like to apply with work or an idea, you can find the application from on our blog or facebook page. Flyers, doubling as application forms will also be spread through out the city, which can be mailed to our location.
From all the applications we select a number of works that will be exhibited. The available space is 100 m2, divided over several rooms. You can find pictures of the space on our website.

Apart from your work or proposals, BERM has already planned a number of events for the BERM/DATE month. Every week starts with the opening of a new exhibition featuring young artists. BERM/DATE will open on Museum Night the 5th of November with video and photographic works from Maarten Rots and other multi-media artists. Week two will be an exhibition of freshly graduated art students, which follows with an open call drawing exhibition (you can apply online or with flyer). The month ends with an exhibition by Bastiaan Bosma, singer and beatmaker of Aux Raus. Bosma will exhibit new drawings. This exhibition opens with a party featuring Redlight Radio dj’s.

Next to the weekly exhibitions a number of other events will take place.

In the theme of dating Berm will organize a speed-dating afternoon for Galllery owners and young artists. We want to give the participants the opportunity to get to know the players in the cultural scene of Amsterdam.

Every opening will have is own dj set, tuned to the exhibited work.
A poetry evening, will be organized with help from Pop-Up Gallery Oost and Eli Content.

Dineke Blom will discuss Maurice Merleau-Ponty and how her work is influenced by his philosophy. Besides that we are looking for other artists who would like to discuss their work and what theories or influences inspire them.

Every Thursday night an open podium will be held for video artists.

Writer and aritst Karina Schaapman will come and speak about her project ‘Het Muizenhuis’ (‘The Mouse Mansion’) and the children’s book that developed from it. This book will be released in september 2011 in different countries. She will also give a mouse house workshop for both yound and old.

We’re looking forward for your proposals!
