Co-Speaking Programme: Screening of LINKSE HOBBIES

de Appel, Prins Hendrikkade 142, Amsterdam

Screening of LINKSE HOBBIES presented by Nancy Hoffmann and Dennis Neumann from De Rotterdamse Beeldmaatschappij, programmed by Platform BK.

Assuming that the ROTTERDAMSE BEELDMAATSCHAPPIJ (RBM) – like many others – practically doesn’t know what’s happening in the contemporary art sector, we started producing the series: left-wing hobbies (premiering mid 2016). Like in a ‘road movie’, the RBM will aim at detaching itself from the cult of personality or exoticism, as well as from the (sometimes-blunt) critique that is heard in Dutch politics and society for years. Following people working in the art sector as well as the cashier, salesman, or bartender, the RBM looks through their different perspectives while continuously seeking to show the various sides of their stories.


Entrance regular + 3 euro
A combiticket is available for 15 euro (excluding the entrance to the exhibition). This combiticket gives entrance to all the events related to Untitled (two takes on crisis).

Event is part of the Co-Speaking programme under the project YOU MUST MAKE YOUR DEATH PUBLIC, part of the larger project Untitled (two takes on crisis), which takes place at de Appel arts centre, the from 23rd of April to the 12th of June, 2016. It is an initiative of the 2015-16 Curatorial Programme of de Appel arts centre.

Dennis Neumann
Editor and filmmaker Dennis Neumann studied AV and fine-arts at the Willem de Kooning Academy in Rotterdam. As a self-called misanthrope Neumann looks at the world with a higher-than-average dose of suspicion. After working at Rietveld TV as a co-creator for several years, he felt it was time to take his current home-town Rotterdam under the looking glass and scrutinize the art-world. Neumann was also the editor for our documentary HOE KUN JE NOU ZO LEVEN.

Nancy Hoffmann
Art-historian and 'practivist' Nancy Hoffmann previously worked in the Caribbean, Central America, African countries and Turkey as a director (IBB Curacao), lecturer and curator. In 2015 she cofounded the ROTTERDAMSE BEELDMAATSCHAPPIJ together with Freek Boon, Dennis Neumann and Selwyn de Bruijn and works at research and communication for their productions.

De Rotterdamse Beeldmaatschappij - Production House For Unruly Imagery

DE ROTTERDAMSE BEELDMAATSCHAPPIJ creates confronting and disrupting content that show the other side of prevailing ideas in society. Without falling into exoticism, voyeurism, or idolising people.

Platform BK
Platform Beeldende Kunst is a strategic coalition that mobilizes existing networks and maps out new connections in order to develop a foundation for joint action and spokemanship. Our aim is to positively affect the current perception and public opinion of arts and culture; to influence political decision-making in conjunction with existing interest groups such as De Zaak Nu and Kunsten 92; and to put forward new logics that can (re)define the significance of art.
