Other Ways of Watching Together

Neverland Cinema x Zenevloed

Zenevloed Collective was invited to do a presentation by the Neverland Cinema Collective during the IFFR (International Film Festival Rotterdam) at Mama Gallery. The evening was hosted by Set who also did a performance and a talk about the importance of a collective as a way of resistance and expression.

Next to art by S. and me, the short film series by Furor ‘Utopia’ was shown. For this event I’ve used the collage posters that were used for the Tonotopic I, rave series that Zenevloed did at an abandoned morgue in Amsterdam. And I’ve created a loop that was accompanied with a set by Kujo, who is also part of the collective.

Something is Stirring in the deep. Truly ingenious progression can only be found hidden away.

Almost four years we have been running Zenevloed, a collective which over time proved to be more than just an event series. We as a collective have bonded over shared ideals, passions, and a struggle to be understood. We seek to progress our activities, to cross domains, boundaries, and learn from each other’s ways-of-doing.

With the evening program we propose as part of Neverland’s “Other Ways of Watching Together”, we would like to open up a twofold discussion about the ways topologies of memory and liminal archives find their way to highly personal works as well as about DIY ethos as an ever needed resistance. We will showcase works (in progress) by those part of our collective revolving around themes of trauma inflicted by displacement. These forms of displacement relate to various urban crises within different timelines. The ways in which the depicted events are part of our personal archive also informs the position we take as a collective within the landscapes between music, visual art, and architecture.
