CHIOȘC / KIOSK at Festival of Independents INexactly THIS in Amsterdam, November 29, 2012, 4 pm

– – – – -

In less than three weeks, the 9 th edition of Kunstvlaai: Festival of Independents, titled !INexactly THIS” will open in Amsterdam with the contributions of over 70 independent art institutions, art schools and artist-led initiatives presenting live arts, exhibitions, film screenings, archival presentations, lectures and workshops.

The 2012 edition will be curated by Natasha Ginwala (IND) and Fleur van Muiswinkel (NL) and will take place from 23rd November to 2nd December 2012.

The upcoming edition positions itself amidst the dynamic characteristics of self-organized art initiatives and project structures. As a rejection of the exacting hyper-production that has yielded repeated collapses of global capitalism, it turns toward the fluctuating working methodologies and imaginative propositions of smaller players in the cultural field. As a temporal platform of ideas, collective experimentation and intuitive organizational approaches the visual identity of INexactly THIS draws inspiration from probability principles and subatomic pathways as seen in the Feynman diagrams, which altered the field of particle physics in the mid 20th century.
