Music videos often expose the realities of local communities, circulating them across platforms and borders. Under lockdown and self-isolation, music video formats have actually enabled forms of solidarity and collectivity across different countries. This online event will look at how local realities and changing notions of public space are represented in music videos. Speakers will also reflect on how fans and communities, held together by music, are responding to the current situation, and what modes of collaboration are emerging during social distancing.

During the opening of The Hoodie, Melanin Kris (of Levisionairs) and cast took visitors on a journey, beginning with a vision of the hoodie as ground zero, and ending in a celebration of his birthday at the amplified afterparty. The event led to the release of his new clothing line of ‘hoodies with poetry’. Just as he was getting up to speed, the corona pandemic hit Rotterdam and he had to grapple with a new strategic challenge as an independent storyteller, essential worker and artist-entrepreneur.

Hermine Giefing-Elzas and her husband Abraham Elzas liked to travel. Little is known about their journeys, but the holiday photos they took in various places in Europe may reveal their unknown fascinations and sources of inspiration. In the context of Disclosing Architecture, Het Nieuwe Instituut is starting a public investigation into these private images in the hope of not only gaining new insights about Abraham Elzas and Hermine Giefing-Elzas, but also to establish new connections between the hundreds of archives which make up the Dutch national collection. We invite you to analyse the images and uncover unknown histories.

The Power of Transparency consists of 14 one-minute videos made by artists in isolation in China, Germany, Italy and the Netherlands. Now that the whole world is locked down at home, we are united in isolation. Although restrained, there is no limitation to our imagination. Close your eyes and let what is opaque become transparent. Transparency is the perfect camouflage. If there is nothing to hide, why fear it? Can we practise transparency to transfer and filter overwhelming information? Can we become transparent to reflect our emotions in an imbalance of power?
