Are you also slowly starting to realize after all these years that your high school days were some of the best ones in your life? Well, we’re afraid to say that those days are never coming back, but that doesn’t mean you can’t make up for all those skipped classes and indulge in your field of interest once more. After a successfull series in May and June, we'll be returning with Het Klaslokaal starting November 2 with classes about subjects such as architecture, film, video art and graphic design.
How does it work? Starting November 2, we’ll be inviting a guest teacher every Wednesday from 19:30 to 20:30 to teach in Het Klaslokaal for seven weeks in a row. You can buy tickets online in our ticketshop for €10. These tickets will give you entry to the desired class plus an delicious authentic bowl of ramen noodles in Café DS before or after the class. Our advice is to be rather quick, because each class has limited space.
ABOUT THE CLASS
People have been referring to video art since 1965, which was coined by artist Nam Jun Paik and has never left the vocabulary of the visual arts. But what exactly is video art? By showcasing historical and contemporary examples, Bart Rutten of the Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam will try to answer this question together with the participants. The development of video art and various forms of the use of the medium video will also be discussed.
