How do you read – Sharon Houkema (2020)

Video work by Sharon Houkema (8’29”)

“How do you read” poetically evokes the spirit of the former NATO bunker 5VEP in Arnhem, NL. During the Cold War 5VEP functioned as a booster station to control the pressure on a secret network of fuel pipelines, spanning from the North Sea coastline well into Germany. The video does not set out to tell 5VEP’s history, but concentrates on the harmful ways in which this history is still alive today: from the toxins used in the construction, to the effects of military fossil fuel use on climate. 

Concept, video and text: Sharon Houkema

‘Act so that there is no use in a centre’ by Stelios Manousakis (2014)

Interactive spatial radio play by Stelios Manousakis.

‘Act so that there is no use in a centre’ sets Rooms from Gertrude Stein’s seminal language-art book Tender Buttons as a distributed, radio-transmitted, interactive sound art installation. The work deals with fragmentation, interference, and distortion of memory, place, and meaning. It takes its name from the first sentence of the text, which also sets the tone for the visitor experience.

Watch a video excerpt here.

Een geval van omgekeerde zwaartekracht by Bente Hamel (2013)

Dutch language radioplay by Bente Hamel of Radiomakers Desmet. 

Eigentijds hoorspel over ruimteschroot, sirenenzang en de jacht op het allermooiste. De Vlaamse miljonair Luc du Pre raakt bezeten van het idee dat de planeten muziek maken, en laat zich lanceren in een afgedankte Russische raket. Sommige mensen hebben de neiging omhoog te vallen in plaats van naar beneden.

Listen here.

Text, direction and sound design: Bente Hamel

Performances by: Hendrik Aerts, Stephanie Pan, Erik van Muiswinkel

Music by Ernst Reijseger & Harmen Fraanje.
