With Harold Schellinx about 'ultra-modern'
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 20:00 to 21:00 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.

The first sign that punk was on the decline near the end of the seventies, was the rise of the Ultra-movement in Amsterdam. Ultra is an abbreviation of Ultra-moderns and started in the end of the seventies at the young centre Oktopus, where courses in singing, instruments and sound engineering were taught. Influenced by no wave in New York, the Ultra-moderns looked at music with an open mind. Everything is possible in this genre of music, as the American industrial pioneer Z’EV proved by adding a chainsaw to his instrumentarium.
