Ferrotopia Evening Expedition #2: Welcome to the new iron age
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: 20 September, 19:30-22:00
Price: €5,- / Passe-partout for 5 lectures €20,-
Tickets are available here

An evening expedition into the ferrous fantasies of Jules Verne and other futurists; time travel by metal detector through the layers of the Earth.
