After the succesfull world-premiere as part of Performa 2023, Julien Creuzet’s Algorithm ocean true blood moves comes to Amsterdam. Julien Creuzet, representing France at the 60th Venice Biennale, will stage his first large-scale choreographic work at the newly opened Studio Boekman of the Dutch National Opera.

With this performative work, Creuzet continues his explorations into the history of trade, displacement, and diaspora. In collaboration with Brazilian choreographer Ana Pi, Creuzet draws on a collection of movements by online content creators of African descent. The movements, gathered by the artist from social media over the years, unveil unexpected, yet intimate connections between steps that exist in different times and geographies across the Black Atlantic.

The performance is co-commissioned by Performa and Hartwig Art Foundation. Hartwig Art Foundation presents the performances in Amsterdam in collaboration with the Dutch National Opera.

Made in the Federal Republic of Germany over a single summer, they depict everyday scenes of life, work, and leisure (more…)

    Public housing has recently been portrayed as a carrier of good neighbourhood that is vanishing in our society and the public has romanticised its image. However, the public has neglected the many real problems faced by people living in these flats: low income, jobless, disability, family problems, new migrants, ageing population and so on. Meanwhile, meaningless renovations have been carried out in old public housing estates but no improvements have been made on facilities that that are really in need. (more…)

    Microscope is very pleased to present To Deceive the Eye, the second solo exhibition at the gallery of works by artist Ina Archer. For To Deceive the Eye – the English translation of the French term “trompe-l’oeil” – Archer draws attention to the representation of African Americans and “the other” in cinema, the media, and the wider culture, from the mid-1800s until present day, highlighting the ways in which visual advancements have often been used to perpetuate stereotypes and racist tropes.
