Film Screening & Performance Preview 14SEP, 7pm
On Thursday, Dutch artist Nicoline van Harkamp will show her 2016 short film "PDGN", in which she presents a future where a link language is spoken that is built up from the ‘ruins of global English. A language, which the artist has composed of various characteristics of non-standard forms of English currently spoken globally.
"PDGN" forms the starting point for her performative piece "Some Name Some Noun Simply", which will be staged on September 17th for a live audience at Archive Kabinett for the first time. In short public sessions with the artist, visitors can familiarize themselves with the structure of the language in "Some Name Some Noun Simply" that will then be performed in her new play.
