The exhibition Soundtrack for a Troubled Time was compiled by guest curators, and the artistic directors of Tlön Projects, Chris Bestebreurtje and Petra Kuipers and derives its name from Cally Spooner’s two-channel sound installation. Works by Mathieu Kleyebe Abonnenc, Katinka Bock, Charbel-joseph H. Boutros & Stéphanie Saadé, Edith Dekyndt, Angela Detanico & Rafael Lain, Roni Horn and Cally Spooner will be displayed in two complementary exhibition spaces which differ in dimensions.
Soundtrack for a Troubled Time centres on the realm of collective unease and the individual desire to escape the latter, whilst balancing between fiction and reality, searching for a comfortable position.
It encourages deeper attentiveness to the unseen interplay of the natural forces that surround us. The artists suggest an antidote on the basis of a new perspective on the world or humanity, they re-write (colonial) history in a more poetic narrative in which humanism, art, poetry and beauty provide relief.
Situated in a repurposed industrial building in the Diepenveen Building, the Huidenclub is a new experimental space dedicated to the production and presentation of contemporary culture. The Huidenclub, holding its name from its original function as a tannery, is conceived as a platform to express a variety of voices and narratives addressing urgent contemporary topics. Alongside this active public programme of exhibitions, performances, talks and screenings, the Huidenclub is also a workspace bringing together artists, designers, and thinkers to form an inclusive creative ecosystem.
