Ferrotopia Evening Expedition #1: An evening about magnetism
Ferrotopia Evening Expeditions
Ferrotopia is an art installation at the Amsterdam NDSM shipyard, a ‘gesamtskunstwerk’ and pop-up museum in one. The art installation of Atelier van Lieshout is an ode to iron (ferro = iron) and consists of a collection of characteristic buildings grouped around a central square.
Following the principle of head, heart and hands, programme-makers Joost Janmaat (Partizan Publik) and Rieke Vos (Stichting NDSM-werf) take their audiences on an expedition into the world of iron. Concrete presentations will accompany expeditions, tasting sessions, music, poetry and other arts.
Date: 6 September, 19:30-22:00
Price: €5,- / Passe-partout for 5 lectures €20,-
Tickets are available here
6 September |the sixth sense: an evening on magnetism
Magnetism is our ‘sixth sense’. Our ability to ‘sense’ that someone is standing behind us. This is thanks to the large quantity of iron in our bodies – enough to make about 15 nails. In other species of animals – for example migratory birds – this sense is much more highly developed. During the first evening expedition, we will investigate man as mineral, the taste of iron, what we can learn from birds and how we can awaken the magnetism that lies within.
