de Appel Amsterdam is closed today. We will be open again on Wednesday, April 17. Meanwhile you can watch the documentation of our evening Permanent Temporality, read about our publication Drafting futures, remembering a building, or rewatch the Darby English's Keynote The King's Two Bodies.
April 17
In the backdrop of an ever-deteriorating garage nestled in the outskirts of Amsterdam South East, a group of undocumented individuals sought refuge. Their condition laid bare the complexities of the situation, where the pursuit of basic human rights was entangled in bureaucratic mandates. Through videos of interviews and conversations with them, Raul Balai and Ehsan Fardjadniya zoom in on their lives and struggles to collect evidence for a tribunal against the city of Amsterdam in 2025.

Wednesday, April 17 marks the launch of the second edition of West Side Tori's, the newspaper for and by Westsiders, created by 7/8 pupils of OBS De Toekomst in Amsterdam Nieuw-West in collaboration with Jaleesa Clows and David Smeulders.
On the 24th of June, Ann Demeester will moderate an evening about about innovation in the arts and the need for continuity. Since five years de Appel again has a remarkable home: Broedplaats Lely, a brutalistic building in a diffuse part of town, where the accelerated effects of the gentrification of the surrounding are clearly visible. As an institution de Appel is part of this ongoing temporality. Now that the precarity this enhances seems to become more extensive, it is time to start the conversation.
Online Presentation
Between sunrise and sunset on 30 November 2020, de Appel devotes space and time to remembering ULAY (born Frank Uwe Laysiepen on 30 November 1943 in Solingen, Germany), an artist and much more, who shaped our institution profoundly and who passed away on March 2nd this year.
To celebrate the publication: Audre Lorde – Dream of Europe: selected seminars and interviews: 1984–1992 (Kenning Editions, 2020), de Appel organised a close reading group starting late September 2020, in order to collectively read and give voice to Lorde’s work as assembled in this book.
