Killing Horizons | ArtScience Masters @QUARTAIR
“We arrived, we had Ideas, we had to destroy them.
Throughout the year, each one of us eventually matched the null hypersurface
the vanishing of the norm of a killing vector field
- his or her personal Killing Horizon.
this zero point, we departed happily
and determined to build new horizons to kill.”
The ArtScience Masters - first year - showcase their works and processes of a year-long incubation.
ArtScience is about killing what one might imagine on the horizon; it demands change in perspective and the axis of the exhibition is disorientingly interdisciplinary. From mechanical sculptures, sound and light installations, to augmented reality and performances, the experimentation is the crucial part of our process and we are interested in the unexpected outcomes.
Works by: Felix Bodin, Gabriela Acha, Timoteo Carbone, Alexander Heil, Ian Ouros, Berk

Among Others, a musical event, a concert, seemingly typical - some composers perform their works. A late May evening, an art space for a concert space. A drink, a conversation, a cigarette . . . before, in between and after.
The evening’s program will consist of four works by four composers:
Ernests Vilsons – an ostensible pinning down of an ostensible object (I-VI)
Gabriel Paiuk – Distance/Fiction experiment (with piano)
Sohrab Motabar – Spring (for piano and two channels fixed-media) performed by Darina Žurková
Edgars Rubenis – in 28’ 42”
Focusing on the predominantly ‘current’ within their artistic practice, the performances will uncover a segment of what might fall under the term ‘contemporary’ composition; the contemporaneity being the consolidating quality, allowing an openness to expand across their manner of operation.
Doors open 19:00 | Concert 19:30
Entrance: € 4 euros
Sohrab Motabar (IR/NL)
Motabar’s main field of interest is electroacoustic music, where he works with algorithms, chaotic functions and microsound. Using non-standard synthesis his music - resonating like a maze - he explores obscured dimensions and experimental modes of perceiving and listening.
Ernests Vilsons (LV/NL)
Vilsons currently studies electronic music at the Institute of Sonology pursuing a research in birdsong and systematic explorations of intonation.
Edgars Rubenis (LV/NL)
Having started out as an experimental guitar player, Rubenis now writes for various acoustic and electronic instruments.
Gabriel Paiuk (AR/NL)
The compositional and sound-art work of Paiuk is focused on the way notions, practices and material aspects of sound mediation play a role in modulating our listening. It takes the form of sound installations, works for instruments and electronics, and collaborations with other artistic disciplines.
Darina Žurková (CZ/NL)
Žurková is a composer, audiovisual artist and performer (voice, piano, electronics) originally from the Czech Republic.

Hoogtij #57 Friday, 24th May 2019 | Moon Gallery
During Hoogtij#57, when the gravitational pull of the moon is at its strongest, the Moon Gallery will land a selection of its artifacts at QUARTAIR.
Join us on the 24th of May to observe the moon and reach for the stars.
Moon Gallery is an international collaborative artwork and a gallery of ideas worth sending to the moon. Together we develop a culture for future interplanetary society.
Participating artists: Dana LaMonda, Studio Samira Boon, Daria Akhrameika, Daria Kozhina, Arina Livadari, Jorick De Quaasteniet, Anastasia Izotova, Thomas Heidtmann, Kornelija Chaleckyte, Suzanna Hamelink, Mary Kuiper, Alexandra Arshanskaya, Sarah Bovelett, Maria Beaumaster and soundscape by Attie Bauw.
Anna Sitnikova (curator, exhibition designer),
Elizaveta Glukhova (curator, graphic designer),
Bernard Foing (space sector expert and visionary) and
Alexander Zaklynsky (creative initiator)
About the project: Moon Gallery is an initiative to launch 100 artifacts to the moon within the compact format of a 10×10×1cm plate on a lunar lander exterior panelling as early as 2022. Moon Gallery invites art projects and artifacts inspired by the moon and by the thrive for human exploration to join our mission. What are the ideas that we want to promote into the future? What are the ideas that we want to leave behind?
Future moon missions require public engagement and the brightest ideas from different cultures and backgrounds. This is what Moon Gallery aims to stimulate.
Hoogtij #57 Friday, 24th May 2019
from 7 pm
and Saturday from 12:00 to 22:00
In a span of two days, InTake will combine performances and exhibition, promoting the interaction between the fine arts, electronic music, classical music, videoart, physical theatre, contemporary dance and poetry.
InTake seeks to create a space of opportunity for artists to present art pieces/performances that question the role of the audience and explore the possibilities of interdisciplinary collaboration, with hope that simultaneously stimulating various human senses will enhance the impact of the experience and will challenge the audience to take an active stance in the absorption of perceived information.
With works by Laura Maneiro, Lydia Buijs, Iliada Charalambous, Ana Francisca Costa, Leonie Schneider, Martin Gabriel, Ymke Vertelman, Görkem Ar?kan, Sarah Atzori, Kyaz x Bimetric, Dorota Matejová, Yung - Tuan Ku, Miro Bollen, Pietertje van Splunter

Lines in us. Lines of territories. Lines in battles. Lines of the terms of reference. Lines in the sails. Lines of the crossings. Lines in the script. Lines of the ordinary people and objects. Lines in the imageries of the spoken words. Lines of the colours and layers of sensibilities. Lines in the interpretations of the expressions. Lines under the currents. Lines in the memory of the stories. Lines of the fiber. Lines in the knots of psyche. Lines of thoughts flowing in front of the site and veneer of the confusion. Lines in the artificial lighting. Lines of remarks to the understandings.
Under•Line is an ongoing project taken form as experimental exhibition-in-progress. The exhibition in The Hague is the second edition, after the debut in its home, Hong Kong. The show explores the concept of the lines, to reflect on how it is visually presented and what it usually represents. The interconnected artworks in Under•Line look underneath of the told. Poetically re-placing in the bits and pieces, the artworks can be viewed as a whole, as well as individually.
With Tsang Chui Mei, Jamsen Law, Julvian Ho, Lee Suet Ying, Tap Chan and Vee Leong / Li Tzimei (Hong Kong)
Opening 2 Feb 2019, from 6 pm to 9 pm
Exhibition from February 3rd to 9th, 12pm - 5 pm (closed on Monday & Tuesday)
Review by Villa Next Door
GOLF festival is a new, three-day festival with performances, installations and lectures about the interaction between image and sound. GOLF is organised by the Haarlem cultural organisations 37PK, Nieuwe Vide en Pletterij in cooperation with Quartair.
The festival takes place on three evenings, Friday 21, Saturday 22 and Sunday 23 December 2018, at three locations in Haarlem: 37PK, Pletterij and Nieuwe Vide, where each location offers a program that matches their character and approach.
The name GOLF (Dutch for “wave”) references the way in which sound and light come to us, as waves, and it references the artists who take the stage during this festival and who are part of a wave of new, exciting experimental art forms.

A glimpse of Riga
During Hoogtij #55, QUARTAIR was occupied by Latvian artists. An evening that let us catch a glimpse of what the capital Riga and its citizens are. Get to know their art, drink their traditional beverage, listen to the band The Bad Tones ( concerts at 20:30 and 22:00 ) and watch the 16 mm shortfilm ‘’Sound we see: Riga’’ where 25 artists capture the vibe of the city.
Participating artists: Rudolfs Stamers, Gundega Strauberga, Estere Betija Gravere, Sabine Vernere, Ieva Jakuša, Nanda Milberta, The Bad Tones and Eliza Elizabete Ramza.
The Bad Tones is a psychedelic rock quartet from Latvia previously known as The Pink Elephant. Mixing skills crafted through classical rock and blues standards with the song writing approach of modern, independent music, they've developed their own style and form. In Quartair they will perform as a trio, so you will meet The Bad Tones lite version.

Doors open 19:00
Concert by The Bad Tones 20:30 and 22:30

E-Witness, Women and War
When looking at the role of women in history we often see women working on the background; widows, orphans, but also victims of (sexual) violence. From the rape of the Sabine women, the Korean and Indonesian ‘comfort women’, the kidnapped school girls of Boko Haram, to the IS women. Yet, women also have been fighters and heroes; at times they might also be instrumental in perpetuating war.
E-Witness aims to revisit and reflect on the role of women in war. Korean art group Art Ze-An departs from their historical perspective, the Korea war. The Dutch artists in the show focus on more recent events. With: Min Cheolhong, Heo Eunyoung, Shim Jung-ah, Chung Kyungmi, Ha Min-su, Han SoongHun, Hwang Seonyoung, Kim Suhyang, Shin Young-Seong, Jessy Rahman and Theater of Wrong Decisions.
The program consists of an exhibition at Quartair, a Round Table at the International Institute for Social Studies (ISS) on Tuesday, 20 Nov 16:00-18:00 in ISS Aula, and an Urban Safari, on Saturday 24 November - 11:00-13:00, in The Hague.
Exhibition Opening Friday, November 19th, 2018 at 18:00
With guest speakers: Dr Kees Biekart, Associate Professor in Political Sociology at the International Institute of Social Studies (ISS)

See what you know
“See what you know” refereert naar het weten dat voortkomt uit het kijken. Het intuďtieve maken is een van de uitgangspunten van het reizende kunstenaarscollectief The Act of Painting. In het maken zit het weten. Je bent de ruimte die je schildert en je bent de actie die je maakt in het beeld.
With works from:
Pietertje van Splunter
Marie van Vollenhoven
Opening: Friday 12 October, 2018 at 7 pm
Exhibition until 28 Oktober
Friday to Sunday from 1 pm to 5 pm

Review by Kees Koomen on: chmkoome.wordpress.com
Artists - Talking with Hands - The Hague:
The hand of the human may be distinguished by the precision grip; however, the humanity of the hand, Heidegger argued, lies in its possession by the word. ‘Man does not “have” hands, but the hand holds the essence of man, because the word as the essential realm of the hand is the ground of the essence of man’. Thus language holds the hand, and the hand holds man.
- Tim Ingold

AS FAR AS I CAN REACH
Liza Wolters, Mike Moonen, Sophia den Breems, Gordon Meuleman,
How deep, how high, how fast and how far can we go? Shall we talk about the path, which lies ahead of us? About the work we want to create and the dreams we have. We wonder. What are the possibilities in our everyday lives?
Can you push the sky? The magic of the mundane only reflects when you put it out there.
The group exhibition As Far As I Can Reach is built on a foundation of these questions and consists of new work made by five artists.
The work is specifically made for Quartair.
The common denominator that brought these artists together for this exhibition is a sense of wonder about the magic of the mundane.
However, the work of these individuals emerges in very different ways and through different routes, from your tears smashing on concrete to waterfalls swallowed by soaked pillows.
The opening on the 8th of June, 8 pm,
coincides with the start of the art festival Holaa! in The Hague.
Open: 12:00-18:00 on 9, 10, 13, 14, 15, 16 of June
Sunday 17th closed
The exhibition will be supervised by the artists themselves.
You can find us on social media.
