 Kunstvlaai INexactly THIS 2012

Kunstvlaai foundation is pleased to announce that the next edition of Kunstvlaai, INexactly THIS, will take place from 23rd November to 2nd December 2012 at a new location: the Sint Nicolaas Lyceum complex at the Amsterdam Zuidas.

Kunstvlaai has been stimulating independent thinking and new forms of collaborations in the arts for more than ten years. As a ‘Festival of Independents’, Kunstvlaai is committed to showcasing some of the most significant and unique models of artist-led spaces, self-
organized platforms as well as art schools from across The Netherlands and abroad. This edition of the festival gives special attention toemerging models and methods of self-organization and autonomous practice within the arts, constituting active proposals for the future of the social-cultural field.

Of course BERM will we present at the Kunstvlaai, with an exhibition presenting some of our favorit artists. BERM is known for it's material based exhibitions. At the Kunstvlaai we invited several artists to install their most tangible or concrete works in the Science Classroom, that are also dealing with the science and educational context of the space.

Lotte Nijhof
Marieke Zwart

I have not picked up a book in ages. For pictures are worth one thousand words and before I get around to reading them all, there is always another picture eagerly waiting around the corner, begging to be looked at and read one thousand times.

I cannot begin to explain how many pictures I’ve seen in my lifetime, maybe three or four lifetimes worth of pictures I think. They are beautiful and awful and absurd all the time and in my mind I wonder how much more can I see. What am I looking at.

Opening: Saturday November 3 from 19.00 till 23.00.
Opening hours: Thursday till Sunday from 13.00 till 17.00 or by appointment (berm.collectief@gmail.com).
Finissage: Sunday November 18 from 13.00 till 17.00.
