Works and Words

20–30.09.1979
de Appel, Brouwersgracht 196, Amsterdam
From September 20 through 30, Foundation De Appel organized Works and Words, an international art manifestation with artists, art historians and -critics from the Netherlands, former East-Germany, Hungary, Poland and former Yugoslavia (the invited artists from former Czechoslovakia were not able to come) . Works and Words comprised lectures, discussions, performances, installations, video, film, historical documentation and an exhibition of photo works (from September 15 through 30). Lectures and meetings and the larger part of the performances took place in a space of 20 x 20 meters, situated in the ex-House of Detention in Amsterdam (De Kapel). The photo works exhibition was held in the Fundatie Kunsthuis, Amsterdam. The films were shown in the Stedelijk Museum and in the Filmmuseum. Gallery A presented Endre Tót's Gladness Drawings (1973-'79). The information and performance space on the mainfloor of De Appel building were used for various activities which often had a workshop character. The second floor gave a survey of developments and trends in the countries concerned from 1960 onwards. An important objective was to stimulate contact between the artists; daily group dinners were organized at De Appel. Foundation Holland Experimental Film and Fundatie Kunsthuis Amsterdam collaborated in the organization of the filmprogramme and the exhibition of photo works respectively.
