MIDDELBURG  •  Vleeshal  •  13 September - 13 December 2015

Curated by Roos Gortzak, this exhibition borrows its title from the short film En Rachâchant by Jean-Marie Straub and Danièle Huillet, based on the children’s story Ah! Ernesto by Marguerite Duras. It takes a humorous look at de-hierarchising the educational process through the character of Ernesto, who insistently refuses to go to school because it teaches things he does not know.

In En Rachâchant, Vasiljeva strategically approaches negation and the refusal to learn. In a time when market logic dominates all fields of teaching and dictates that knowledge must be rentable in economic terms, this show mounts a playful assault on this ideology.

The exhibition takes the form of an anti-pedagogical stage, one populated by mixed-media works, sculptures and drawings that manipulate motifs related to the subject of disobedience as a course of learning.

Events in Jazz

Guus Janssen / Wolter Wierbos / Wim Janssen
AMSTERDAM  •  Bimhuis  •  14 October 2015
For many years these masterful musicians have been performing together in various combinations, but now they will perform as a trio for the very first time: trombone player Wolter Wierbos (ICP Orchestra), drummer Wim Janssen (Ensemble Loos) and pianist/composer Guus Janssen, who describes the trio as follows: ‘Themes, patterns and swing disintegrate and come together again in a new form. A wrong note turns out to be a good one, walking a tightrope between mistakes being solved in an unruly yet musical manner.’
