The One Minutes Series: Biased Gods

The One Minutes Series: Biased Gods
‘Vlinderslag’ (Butterfly Stroke), a one minute video that I made in collaboration with Judith Koning, has been selected for The One Minutes Series, of March, ‘Biased Gods’, curated by Janna Ullrich. 
For ‘Biased Gods’, Janna Ullrich invited artists and filmmakers to create a forecast concerning daily decision-making of 60 seconds long. Does the forecast act as an everyday manipulator, protective or hero assistant? Additionally Janna selected films from the The One Minutes Collection to include in the series.

Last weekend there the Laren poetry Festival took place, with the presentation of the poetry bundle ‘Soms gaan letters’ (Sometimes letters go). This is the second poetry book in the series Kortweg to which I contributed (scroll down for the two original poems, I adapted them just a little bit for the book), containing miniature poems of up to 9 lines (including white lines). The participating poets each read their two poems and had a chat with poet-presenter-organizer Jos van Hest. We had a wonderful evening. The bundle can be ordered for € 5 by poet and organizer Gerard Beentjes.

The One Minutes Series: Public Justice

The One Minutes Series: Public Justice

Two of my films have been selected for The One Minutes Series of February, ‘Public Justice’ curated by Quinsy Gario: ‘Mobylettes’ (Marrakech, 2012) and ‘Liberty’ (New York City 2013). For ‘Public Justice’, Quinsy Gario invited artists and filmmakers to propose works of one shot in public space commenting on justice. Gario also selected films from the vast The One Minutes Collection. Quinsy Gario is a performance poet and came to the Netherlands from the Caribbean fifteen years ago. In his work he deals with postcolonial issues. He just finished a Master Artistic Research at the Royal Academy of Art and is currently a fellow of BAK in Utrecht.
