Wendelien van Oldenborgh
Cinema Olanda: Platform 

June 17–August 20, 2017
Opening Friday, June 16, 2017, 5pm 

An ever-evolving exhibition incorporating a six-week long dedicated program of live events that extends Cinema Olanda, artist Wendelien van Oldenborgh and curator Lucy Cotter’s presentation in the Dutch pavilion at the 57th Venice Biennale. It forms the most extensive manifestation of their wider collaborative project that ‘brings home’ the exhibition’s questions surrounding the Netherlands’ (inter)national image vis-à-vis current transformations in the Dutch cultural and political landscape. Cinema Olanda: Platform includes talks, events, screenings and performances programmed by Amsterdam School for Cultural Analysis (ASCA) (Patricia Pisters, Esther Peeren), First Things First (Katayoun Arian, Curator, Researcher, Writer; Louise Autar, Activist, Organiser; Max de Ploeg, Activist, Cultural & Political Programmer), Quinsy Gario (Artist, Poet), Charl Landvreugd (Artist, Curator, Writer), and New Urban Collective (Jessica de Abreu, Mitchell Esajas). Participating groups and individuals are invited to use the institution as a site to present their manifold projects, which are presented together with film installations by Van Oldenborgh.

Öğüt – Macuga
June 17–December 31, 2017
Opening Friday, June 16, 2017, 5pm

The exhibition is the result of Witte de With Director Defne Ayas’ pairing of two of the most important critically engaged artists of our times; Goshka Macuga and Ahmet Öğüt. Executed in two episodes—the first steered this Summer by Öğüt, and the second by Macuga in the Fall—the project lays bare the pair’s attempt to formulate a methodology with which to survey their respective practices, a process subject to misinformation and misunderstanding along the way, as much as generosity of ideas, commitment of time, and peer-to-peer play.

Ongoing 
Ari Benjamin Meyers 
Kunsthalle for Music

November 4, 2016–March 31, 2018

Can we imagine a space for music that exists outside of any media and beyond the stage? A space for unrecordable music, music of undefined duration, existing even when no audience is present? An exposition, not an exhibition by Ari Benjamin Meyers unfolded the Kunsthalle for Music’s foundational themes at Spring Workshop (March 11–April 1, 2017), followed by Music is Not! A Conference On and Around the Kunsthalle for Music at Witte de With (May 26–27, 2017), including auditions for the inaugural ensemble of the Kunsthalle for Music and contributions by Peter Osborne, Jonathan Bepler, Victoria Ivanova, Francois Quintin, Lisette Smits, and Armen Avenessian, among others. An inaugural exhibition is slated to open January 25, 2018 at Witte de With, featuring a series of new commissions
