2030: War Zone Amsterdam is an exercise in imagining the unimaginable: a
state of war in your own city in the year 2030. A cease-fire has just been
announced, and a group of international artists, theatre makers, filmmakers,
journalists and intellectuals go out into the city to investigate what the
war has done to Amsterdam and its inhabitants.
M2M participates as embedded reporters and infiltrating artists.
Listen to Khaled Hourani from Ramallah and Tony Chakar from Beirout
On Saturday 28 November the first phase of the multiyear event 2030: War
Zone Amsterdam will be launched in Mediamatic in the Vijzelstraat, with
Blitz presentations by thirty international artists and collectives.
Curator Brigitte van der Sande developed the project on the basis of an idea
of Partizan Publik. On the same occasion the special issue of Open, Cahier
on Art and the Public Domain # 18 will be launched.
