#laatjenietnaaien sweater

Design: Kaulane Huisman en Serena Kloet


Lieve #laatjenietnaaien trui enthousiasteling, lieve maker, producent, programmamaker, freelancer in de sector, Holy crap, wat kan er veel gebeuren in een korte tijd. Kut en zeker als we het over geld hebben. Ondanks de financiele weirdness (en misschien juist wel daarom) is het toch ons plan om door te gaan met de actie #laatjenietnaaien en de sweater die daarbij hoort, omdat we nou eenmaal geen ‘hobbyist’ zijn en juist ook omdat de Katoenfabriek (waar we de truien bestellen) gewoon open is en enorm veel inkomsten aan het mislopen is. In de bijlage zit een afbeelding van de sweater. Dus bij dezen de details voor jou: De trui is 35,- Hij is organisch (jeeh) en mooi. Hij is fair gemaakt, betaald en ook onze medewerking zit hierin verrekend. Stuur je maat en kleur voorkeur (blauwe of grijze trui). Als je zakelijk wil betalen stuur dan ook je zakelijke adres mee, dan kan dat op de factuur/pakbon die je van ons ontvangt als de trui er is. Die krijg je dan in de mail, die pakbon. Uit deze prijs betalen we ook grafisch ontwerpers Kaulane Huisman en Serena Kloet. In Utrecht kan je hem gratis ophalen/kunnen we hem voor je deur komen leggen. 

Dear #laatjenietnaaien sweater enthusiast, sweet maker, producer, program maker, freelancer in the sector, Holy crap, what can happen in a short time. Bad and especially when we talk about money. Despite the financial weirdness (and perhaps precisely because of that), our plan is to continue with the action #laatjenietnaaien and the sweater that goes with it, because we are not a "hobbyist" and precisely because the Cotton Factory (where we order the sweaters) is simply open and is missing out on a lot of income. In the attachment is an image of the sweater. So here's the details for you: The sweater is 35, - It is organic (yeeh) and beautiful. He is made fair, paid and our cooperation is also included in this. Send your size and color preference (blue or gray sweater). If you want to pay for business, please also send your business address, you can do that on the invoice / packing slip that you receive from us when the sweater is there. You will receive it in the mail, that packing slip. We also pay graphic designers Kaulane Huisman and Serena Kloet from this prize. Read more or order @ #laatjenietnaaien

The Duke of Iron

Sings Calypso, The Fly


Wilmouth Houdini may have been the first major star of calypso to record extensively in the U.S., but the Duke of Iron became the leading exponent of calypso just as high-fidelity recording became commonplace. His particular combination of authenticity amd popular appeal both modernized and improved the sound of calypso at a crucial time. Other calypsonians of great originality, such as fellow New Yorker the Mighty Sparrow, owed him a huge debt. Born Cecil Anderson in Trinidad, the Duke of Iron learned music from his famous father and others. (His brother performed under the name Count of Monte Cristo.) Cecil came to the United States and made New York City his new home in 1923. In 1940 he began playing professionally at the Village Vanguard, and after ten months he headed west, touring until a triumphant return to New York in 1943. From then on he was King of Calypso and toured college campuses for some time until returning to Trinidad. There, he formed a new band and headed to Europe for a tour. He returned to New York at the height of the calypso craze (1956, the year Belafonte's debut eclipsed Elvis') to begin a long stint as headliner of the Jamaican Room. On the LP Jungle Calypso, the Duke is accompanied by Modesto Calderon (bass player), Gregory Feliz, and Victor Pacheco. The latter two take turns at drums, violin, and clarinet. By the time of his Jamaican Room engagement, the Duke was playing quattro (four-stringed guitar) with a drummer, bassist, pianist, and two others doubling on sax and clarinet. He recorded for Victor as well as the jazz label Prestige (Limbo, Limbo, Limbo), which despite the name features strong original material and excellent recording by the peerless Rudy Van Gelder. His LPs typically include one or two steel-band instrumentals, but that should not pose no obstacle to their appreciation. LINK Youtube Extra

Jānis Jaunsudrabiņš

The White Book 
Graphic design: Sandra Krastiņa
research Dolf Pauw


Jānis Jaunsudrabiņš (1877–1962) was a famous Latvian author and painter. His life and work were imbued with bright light and clear vision. Having come from the countryside, Jaunsudrabiņš was well familiar with the life on the traditional Latvian farm and its intimate connection to the cycles of nature. As many Latvians he, too, had to experience personally the dramatic shifts and collisions of the 20th century. During World War I, Jaunsudrabiņš shared the fate of many refugees in Northern Caucasus; then he experienced peace and relative prosperity of newly independent Latvia and familiarised himself with Western culture. At the end of World War II, Jaunsudrabiņš was once again a refugee – this time in Germany where he settled in Kerbeck, living there until his death in 1962. In 1997, Jaunsudrabiņš was reburied in Latvia, near his Nereta birthplace. 

During a stay at the writers' retreat Burtnieku Nams on the outskirts of Riga, Jaunsudrabiņš started writing his masterpiece, 
"The White Book", one of the most outstanding works of Latvian literature. The first part of it was published in 1914 and the second followed in 1921.

Kees Koomen @ De Aanschouw

Overschilderschilderij Painting 141







'The Overschilderschilderij' (oil paint, 50 cm x 60 cm, 2002-present) Since May 24 2002, artist Daan den Houter has invited art painters to make an oil painting on the same canvas. Each painting is shown for 1 week in the smallest gallery from Rotterdam: De Aanschouw (Witte de Withstraat 80b, Rotterdam). Then the canvas goes to the next painter for a new layer. In 2012 this work was nominated for the Royal Dutch Painters Award. In 2014 it hung in honor of the 100th layer, in a solo presentation in the Boijmans van Beuningen museum. The previous works can be viewed at aanschouw.nl

Valia Balkanska

For Baba's birthday today (99) in Plovdiv Bulgaria

Valia Balkanska is part of the Voyager Golden Record selection of music





Valya Mladenova Balkanska (Bulgarian: Валя Младенова Балканска) (born 8 January 1942) is a Bulgarian folk music singer from the Rhodope Mountains known locally for her wide repertoire of Balkan folk songs, but in the West mainly for singing the song "Izlel ye Delyo Haydutin", part of the Voyager Golden Record selection of music included in the two Voyager spacecraft launched in 1977. Born in a hamlet near the village of Arda, Smolyan Province, Balkanska has been singing Rhodope folk songs since her early childhood. She performs a repertoire of over 300 songs in Bulgaria and abroad. Balkanska is most famous in the West for "Izlel ye Delyo Haydutin", which she recorded in 1968 accompanied by the bagpipe (gaida) players Lazar Kanevski and Stephan Zahmanov. Her best-known recording was made in the late 1960s by the American explorer of Bulgarian folklore Martin Koening and was released on vinyl in the United States. A few years later, a specimen of the record accidentally fell among the purchased records for the preparation of the Golden Record, a message from the Earth to fly out of the Solar System aboard two identical spacecraft from the NASA Voyager program. The song was included in the final 90-minute musical selection by Carl Sagan and flew first on the Voyager 2, which was launched on August 20, 1977, and two weeks later on September 5, 1977, on the Voyager 1. On August 25, 2012, Voyager 1 became the first object of human origin to leave the Heliosphere and to enter Interstellar medium. LINK The song (Youtube)

Panamarenko

Photography Dolf Pauw


Panamarenko was a contemporary Belgian artist known for his mixed-media sculptures of airplanes, zeppelins, and flying saucers. Despite being modeled after aerodynamic engineering, Panamerenko's works are not necessarily capable of flight—an irony deliberately invoking the sentiment found in the myth of Icarus. Most of his work involves the history of engineering and aviation as a metaphor for failure, hope, and human exploration. Born Henri Van Herwegen on February 5, 1940 in Antwerp, Belgium, he was educated at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Antwerp. In 1968, one of the artist’s biggest influences Joseph Beuys invited Panamerenko to exhibit his Flugzeug piece at the Düsseldorf Kunstakademie. He has gone on to exhibit his works globally at spaces like the Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofia in Madrid and The Museum of Modern Art in New York. A retrospective of his works was held in 2005 at the Koninklijk Museum voor Schone Kunsten in Brussels. LINK site Panamarenko

IDFA DocLab Rozsypne

IDFA's key new media from Friday, November 22nd to Tuesday, November 26th. 

Rozsypne (DocLab: Exhibition) 11:00 - 21:00 @ Tolhuistuin


IDFA’s new media program DocLab has been exploring the art of interactive and immersive non-fiction since 2007. Over the years, IDFA DocLab has developed into one of the leading platforms for interactive documentary art and storytelling. Every year, we commission new pieces, initiate collaborations between artists, and offer a wide range of industry activities to support those shaping the landscape of emerging media and art. During the festival we showcase the best new interactive documentary art through two competition programs, a physical exhibition, and a series of experimental live events to present undefined art forms to a wider audience. Tolhuistuin – IJpromenade 2 

In the summer of 2014, the village of Rozsypne in the eastern Ukrainian countryside found itself in the midst of a raging civil war, the lives of its inhabitants unsettled by the destruction and chaos at their doorstep. But the suffering of Rozsypne only made international news after Malaysia Airlines flight MH17 was shot down, killing all 298 passengers and raining debris, bodily remains and other traces of human life over the fields and homes of the village-whose name translates as “scattered.” While international coverage of the crash mostly centered on Western European lives, this poetic roomscale VR experience offers a fragmented window into the life of Nina, an elderly woman living in Rozsypne. Moving through the distinctive Ukrainian sunflower fields, we witness the details of Nina’s austere but cozy home and experience the feeling of this faraway reality up close. A vivid and brightly colored exploration of mourning, endurance, and common human feeling. LINK IDFA

Santa Maria

Funchal, oktober 12, Replica of vessel “Santa Maria” is passing the port of Funchal 2019 (Madeira, Portugal).


A carrack was a three- or four-masted ocean-going sailing ship that was developed in the 14th to 15th centuries in Europe (mainly Portugal). Evolved from the single-masted cog, the carrack was first used for European trade from the Mediterranean to the Baltic and quickly found use with the newly found wealth of the trans-Atlantic trade between Europe, Africa and then the Americas. In their most advanced forms, they were used by the Portuguese for trade between Europe and Asia starting in the late 15th century







In 1492, Christopher Columbus sailed a small fleet of three small ships west from Spain across the Atlantic Ocean, hoping to find a shorter route to the riches of Asia. Before his voyages, Chinese and Indian luxuries for European markets were transported over the long and hazardous overland route through Arabia. The three-masted vessel Santa Maria was the largest of Columbus’s expeditionary vessels and his flagship. Measuring around 70 feet in length, it carried a crew of 40 men. The Santa Maria and Columbus’s other fleet members the Niña and the Pinta were older ships used for coastal trading rather than vessels designed for ocean crossings. Nine weeks after the little fleet left Spain, land was sighted in the Caribbean on 12 October 1492, but exactly which island Columbus’s crew first spotted remains disputed. LINK Christopher Columbus
