19.09.2017 Other | After a summer break, Het Klaslokaal returns with a brand new trilogy on queer art. Every edition, a different important time frame in modern queer art is discussed. After a sold out first edition on the early 20th century it's time for class number two: the late 20th century. We asked the the initiator, Léon Kruijswijk some questions on the series.

15.09.2017 Club | A grinding four-to-the-floor beat holds great potential when it comes to uniting people on dance floors and forming new friendships. Although local music scenes start out in a particular area and thrive on the residents that bring about their own certain charm, they are unique reflections of individuals seeking out new meanings. Scenes then expand, thanks to the desire of likeminded people to connect with each other, and with a little help from 21st century infrastructure.

12.09.2017 Gallery | Although the summer season at De School has been a bit dull in a meteorological sense, we we can happily state that the numerous thrilling exhibitions and performances that took place under our roof generously compensated all the rain. This fall we'll continue this pattern by opening the score with a fresh and remarkable exhibition called 15/LOVE. What popped into mind when you read the title of the exhibition? Did you think of teenage love or did the image of a close game of tennis come to mind? It could be both, but let’s start by exploring the latter. Let the games begin.

07.09.2017 Club | Luc Mastenbroek: DJ. Stingray. I had this feeling I’d seen him play before, and I probably did, but when I heard him play at the Adriatic seaside of Tisno two weeks ago, I realized it was the first time I actually heard, felt and experienced his music. There’s nothing like it. Really.

22.08.2017 Club | Luc Mastenbroek: For this year’s edition we’re going to shake it up a little. Last year was fun, but the different nights felt a bit like separate islands. One island for techno, one more house, the other more disco. While the reality of our nights is a mix-up:

17.08.2017 Club | The all-female line-up, the token woman hire, the technofeminist, the discwoman. When it comes to being a woman behind the decks, there is always friction. Donna Haraway, the expert on the frictions of bodies, gender, technology and biology described this as irony.

15.08.2017 Club | Luc Mastenbroek: I’m not sure if I’d call it unfortunate, but this year I could only spend two days at Dekmantel Festival, mainly because I didn’t want to miss Nachtdigital’s twenty year celebration. A tough choice but I was happy to see both this year, travelling from Amsterdam to Olganitz on Saturday morning.

10.08.2017 Club | Ana Helder makes quirky music. She uses aggressive drums, weird samples, lots of bass guitar and her own voice. My favorite aspect is that her songs are always filled with tension. In a photo, she’s holding a drawing by Matias Aquayo saying ‘La pequena Ana conquistando America’, meaning ‘the little Ana conquering America’. Her music seems to serve purpose as the soundtrack to that adventure.

02.08.2017 Club | Ahead of her set in De School on Friday the 4th of August, I caught up with Mama Snake – real name Sara Svanholm – to find out how she balances becoming a doctor and dj-ing, her label Ectotherm and the scene in her hometown of Copenhagen.

30.06.2017 Club | The name of Izabel's label does justice to her approach to sound: soothing but never sleepy. I asked Izabel to share some of her favorite tracks. She sent 4 tracks, then one more, another one, and a special one. These are her picks.

08.06.2017 Club | Alise Akimova: Satoshi Aoyagi, otherwise known as DJ SO, is coming from Japan to play De School this weekend for the Nachtdigital Weekender.

16.05.2017 Club | By Emma van Meyeren: "Like all things that are hard to define, it might be easier to describe what it is not, than to describe what it is. Not elitist, unprejudiced and without a clear genre, Dutch triple-threat Parrish Smith, Robert Bergman and Xosar have in common a sound that is best defined by what it is not—from the negative space outside of the deep abyss of their sound."

09.05.2017 Gallery | Jasmin Hoek: In anticipation of Tijdgenoten #3 I will elaborate on some of the important aspects of looking, more specifically looking at erotic imagery. Imagine a classic Hollywood movie; a beautiful woman is accidentally caught undressing by the main character of the movie. As the spectator sees him looking at her, sees his view of her, and also sees her from the camera’s point of view; in this case you and the main character are both voyeurs. But what exactly is voyeurism?
