Dockers at the group exhibition 'UnAuthorised Medium'.

Save the date! On the 17th of November 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 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.

Our exhibition at Vondelpark is not an ordinary exhibition. It’s an exchange platform, where we give you something: important photo stories to collect; and you can give us something in return: your enthusiasm for photography and visual storytelling as a member of the Docking Station Community.

With this exhibition - concepted and designed by Featuring Amsterdam - we hope to inspire as many people as possible to take the stories home and share them with others, and thus help us moving the stories forward. In this demo, powered by Slices, we show you how it works (on a mobile device: swipe through the slides to read the instructions).

The exhibition is part of our programme Sharing Stories, which was made possible with support from Prins Bernhard Cultuurfonds, Amsterdams Fonds voor de Kunst, BNG Cultuurfonds, VSB Fonds, BankGiro Loterij Fonds and all our loyal Docking Members.
