NDSM Light: An-sisters [NDSM] | belit sag Archived
ART PROGRAM BY STICHTING NDSM-WERF
VISIBLE 6 NOVEMBER – 4 DECEMBER 2022
belit sağ (1980, Turkey, she/they) is a visual artist and educator based in Amsterdam. At NDSM, they present a newly commissioned work by Stichting NDSM-werf in response to the invisible history of the wharf. An-sisters (NDSM) connects and traces the stories and struggles of female migrant workers from Turkey throughout generations. sağ interviewed several women: a former textile worker talks about working at several locations in Amsterdam, including NDSM in the late 80s and early 90s; her daughter recites memories of her mother’s working life; an organiser/translator tells us about co-owning a textile atelier at NDSM in the late 80s. Alongside interviews, the videoinstallation includes fragments from archives such as Instituut voor Beeld en Geluid and a spoken word audio piece constructed from the interviews. An-sisters (NDSM) traces the materiality, precarity, and invisibility of migrant female labour throughout generations.
Location: Smederijplein, visible 6.11.2022 – 4.12.22. The video ‘An-sisters (NDSM)’ can be watched online on this page.
