Event description

Description


Techno and the City 2017 | Amsterdam is a nomadic intervention that travels across cities. We believe that techno is not only about music and listening. Techno is also vision and arts, it is dance and body movement, it is about text and stories too.

Part of ADE Playground programme, Techno and the City will showcase a selection of techno-art pieces from international and local artists. The intervention is hosted by LAB 111.

The exhibition will feature art from Abdul Qadim Haqq, Ayane, Daniel Chazme, Julien Pacaud, Kathrin Kuhn, Mark Dancey, Michael Lange, Nicola Napoli, Rudy Loewe, Stefan Fähler and Uros Djurovic. Artworks include original material for labels such as Axis, Tresor and Dystopian, as well as dance collectives like Room4Resistance.


_LAUNCH

The launch of Techno and the City 2017 | Amsterdam will start with a presentation of the artworks by the collective Techno&Philosophy and an open discussion about the evolution of Techno-Arts. As Amsterdam Dance Event unfolds throughout the city, we will discuss how Techno spreads across music, dance and the visual arts.

The launch will open with Gender Fuck[er], an international and interdisciplinary collaboration between internationally acclaimed choreographer and photographer Graham Adey (SE | GB) and performer, maker and movement researcher Keren Rosenberg (NL | IL), who together look into heterosexuality through a queer gaze. Keren will also host NOBODY HAS TO KNOW gender Neutral fashion brand with their collection Gender Fuck[er], a one of a kind collaboration between fashion and dance, celebrating gender fluidity and design.

The performance will be followed by interventions and an open discussion about the evolution of electronic arts with Professor and author Hillegonda Rietveld from the London South Bank University and Alessio Kolioulis from the collective Techno&Philosophy.

Starts at 7 PM. Free entry with RSVP (limited).
