OFFSIDE is now on display at the first Beijing Photo Biennial. The event is organised by the art museum of the Central Academy of Fine Arts (CAFAM), who invited Paradox director Bas Vroege to curate one of the exhibitions and presents the exhibition Points on the Map – The Representation of Conflict in Cultural Space. This Paradox exhibition deals with the changing geopolitical landscape in the 21st century and the ways in which political conflicts are being represented by photographers, filmmakers and artists.
Points on the Map is a multiplatform exhibition, including photographic prints, audiovisual installations and apps. Artists, photographers and filmmakers from The Netherlands and abroad were selected for this exhibition: Robert Knoth & Antoinette de Jong (NL), Tim Hetherington (GB), Simon Norfolk (GB), Ad Nuis (NL), Anastasia Khoroshilova (RUS), Seda Muradyan (ARM), Dirk-Jan Visser & Arthur Huizinga (NL), Ad van Denderen (NL), Nir Evron (IL), Juul Hondius (NL), Miquel Dewever-Plana & Isabelle Fougere (FR), Kadir van Lohuizen (NL).
The aim of Points on the Map is to show what kind of models and practices documentary photographers and filmmakers have developed in recent years regarding conflicts in other (and in some cases their own) parts of the world. In this framework four regions will receive special attention: Afghanistan, Israel/Palestine, Latin-America and the Caucasus.
The Beijing Photo Biennial will take place from October 24 until December 8, 2013 at the Beijing World Art Museum / China Millennium Monument.
With proud we presented a new furniture line named Hoogeland at the Dutch Design Week in Eindhoven last week. The furniture was developed during the residency of Rotterdam-based designer Guido Marsille in Atelier aan de Middendijk in Usquert.
Marsille researched local building types and interior styles in the Hoogeland area, the rural and northernmost part of the Netherlands. Based on this research he designed a contemporary Rural Style Room. This space, which simultaneously functions as a bathroom to the Atelier aan de Middendijk, is a time capsule or real life tableau; it presents state of the art technique in conjunction with re-used furniture. A luxurious shower is build into an antique wardrobe closet and the sink is a re-designed cabinet. The window frames originate from a demolished farmhouse and style examples for old-fashioned wallpaper are printed on textile for the walls and ceiling. The colouring is conforming the local traditional colour chart.
