GERILJA/KURATING magazine

ABOUT GERILJA/KURATING

gerilja/kurating is an online magazine focused on the black arts scene across the globe, based in Amsterdam and kurated by Chandra Frank and Sarah Klerks.

gerilja/kurating magazine is interested in digging a little deeper into the various themes that namely black artists and curators address in their work. we kurate an online magazine and showcase various forms of visual arts related to a range of themes such as decoloniality, gender, race, popular culture and (street) fashion. without making grand generalisations about ‘black art’ and a ‘black arts movement’, we are interested in the meaning of ‘black art’ today. from time to time you’ll find gerilja offline as well.

Ademgebed

Postuum debuteren: het is iets wat gelukkig niet elke dag gebeurt. Helaas overkwam het Martijn Teerlinck, die ongeveer driekwart jaar geleden kwam te overlijden, wel. Hij had net een paar maanden daarvoor zijn veelgeprezen titelloze debuutalbum uitgegeven onder de artiestennaam The Child of Lov. Teerlinck verwierf internationale faam door een NME (New Musical Express)-award in de wacht te slepen en samen te werken met Damon Albarn: Nu verschijnt zijn poëziedebuut: Ademgebed. Posthuum. - http://www.tzum.info/2014/09/recensie-martijn-teerlinck-ademgebed/

The future of wearable technologies

Technology has been always crucial to the development of fashion, but as technology improves and advances, it is being more and more closely integrated into our clothing.

Wearable technologies currently exist in two spaces - as conceptual pieces by artisan designers, and as engineering driven wearable products that are taken to market. But, as Danielle Wilde explains, the future for wearable technologies lies in creating products with expressive aesthetic qualities that can be taken to market.

Danielle Wilde is a visiting research Fellow, Centre for Smart Materials and Performance Textiles at RMIT University.

This video is a co-production between SBS World News and The Conversation.

Zwart Belicht | Painted Black

A Film by Tessa Boerman

Unfolding like a detective novel, Painted Black examines the representation of people of African origin in the paintings of Dutch and Flemish masters from the late Middle Ages to the present, with a particular focus on the seventeenth century.

You can watch Echoes of Blaxploitation in the Netherlands, a lecture by Tessa Boerman, here. My search for a copy of Zwarte Belicht continues…

The painting shown in the poster above is Moses and His Wife by Jacob Jordaens.
