You are cordially invited to the presentation of our fountain, next weekend June 2 at 13.00 h. during Charlois Speciaal.

More info on the Varia webiste (space for everyday technology)

and the facebook event

Long before there were people in Charlois, there was already water. Water is always on the move and always finds a way. Historically, fountains were gathering places that occupied a central place in village- and city life. Often they were installed to commemorate a great battle, a plague epidemic or some other historical event, donated by the municipality or a patron. Unfortunately, Charlois currently has no working fountain. Niek Hilkmann and Anne Kolbe want to remedy this shortcoming and temporarily give Charlois a mobile fountain that is not tied to a single place or interpretation. After an opening ceremony, held on the 2nd June around 13:00, next to Varia, space for everyday technology, the fountain can be seen during the weekends of the Charlois Speciaal festival, in search of new meaning and appreciation.

Flag ceremony #2: Tijl Orlando Frijns

Second in a series of flags and accompanying ceremonies with the flag pole as an exhibition site:

#2 TIJL ORLANDO FRIJNS: Behind your flag
16.00 h. October 8 2017
Kunst & Complex, Keileweg 26, Rotterdam

facebook event

Flags can deal with topics such as identity, diversity, similarities, agreements and contracts. They serve as markers for existing territories or get planted on freshly conquered ones. They symbolise journeys being made, fraternisation, reconciliation, but they can also provoke collisions, separation, conflicts and exclusion.

Time to reconsider the flag with Tijl Orlando Frijns! During the next flag ceremony Tijl is going to unfurl some of his thoughts on flags in the form of a performative speech. He will raise a narrative ‘flag’ that touches upon notions such as liberties, boundlessness and breaking down conventions.

You are very welcome to join us for the ceremony in the yard of Kunst & Complex, Keileweg 26, Rotterdam. There will be beers for the modest sum of a Euro!
