Docking Station at Unseen

Docking Station is part of Unseen Amsterdam 2019 (20-22 september 2019).

Our brand new mobile paviljon will be located on the festival site and host our Docker#26 Jordi Ruiz Cirera (SP).
We will perform The Soya Republic, a visual storytelling performance based on the work of this photographer. Come to meet Jordi and his fascinating story.


Goodbye Docking Hub

After three years of loyal service, we said goodbye February 2019 to our Docking Hub. The 3x3x3m tiny house stood in three different areas in Amsterdam and welcomed 24 photographers from 18 different countries.

Now it is time for a new residency. One that will not only host our Dockers, but also be a home to our activities. A place where we can meet, discuss, celebrate and be inspired by our Dockers and their stories!

We have asked Amsterdam-based design agency Overtreders W to design the impossible: a home, a theatre, an exhibition, and a mobile piece of art that we can take wherever we like. We call it our Story Station. We are super excited about this and the first sketches look very promising!

The launch is due in September in Amsterdam's lively Westerpark. In the coming months we will give you a sneak peek and keep you posted on the developments.


Dockers at the group exhibition 'UnAuthorised Medium'

Save the date! On the 17th of November 2018 there will be a performative lecture and a presentation by our former Docker Sim Chi Yin and current Docker Kazuma Obara. 

The work from Sim Chi Yin will be part of the the group exhibition UnAuthorised Medium who brings together works by artists who have deep connections to Southeast Asia while also working extensively across the globe. Borrowing its title from a Vietnamese ritual of invoking the dead and the lost, the featured artists in turn evoke the ‘ghosts’ – ‘glitches’ – in the archive, activating local histories, communities and knowledge that have been erased in official, dominant narratives.

On the 17th of November 2018 Kazuma Obara will give a presentation on his project Silent Histories. There will also be a collective conversation between the participants and the show’s curator, Annie Jael Kwan.
