|[Nettime-nl] Emotional Architecture by Calin Dan in Heerlen|
Emotional Architecture by Calin Dan It is our pleasure to announce the inauguration of another episode in the on-going artistic research of Calin Dan - Emotional Architecture - at the Kunstencentrum SIGNE, in Heerlen. Organized around the new video 17.12.65, produced in commission from the municipality of Heerlen in 2008, the event consists of a series of (video) installations and a dinner conversation. Titles that have been broadly circulated worldwide (like Sample City, Trip, sony/wmf/pp) will be presented in an site specific environment, with custom made photo wallpapers and furniture from the 1960s, all meant to revive in a critical way the circumstances to which the center piece 17.12.65 makes reference. 17.12.65 zaps in 10 minutes through the past of Heerlen, a small city from Southern Holland avoided by history until the late 19th century, when the discovery of coal started there a compressed industrial revolution. The revolution was lost some 60 years down the road to competition from cheaper import coal and natural gas. On 17.12.1965, the Dutch government announced the closing of the mining industry in the region. The date should be saved as the start of the globalization trend reshaping the world today. Decades of forced development were reversed in a few years. Heerlen became a shrinking city. A project of KUS (Kunstencentrum SIGNE) and Handmilked Visions. Opening Friday 13 February 19:00 hours. Kunstencentrum SIGNE, Willemstraat 91a, 6412 AP Heerlen ______________________________________________________ * Verspreid via nettime-nl.
