Independent School for the City, Delftsestraat 33 III

As the housing movement gains new momentum, Het Nieuwe Instituut and the Independent School for the City host two days of conversations about spatial strategies for housing alternatives and non-normative forms of living. Housing Futures will provide a platform to discuss everything from the future of squatting to the rise of new models for cooperative housing, while at the same time rethinking how to document and preserve these spatial, social and political strategies for future generations. Housing Futures aims to contribute to the growing housing movement with new ideas, fresh connections and practical solutions. Entrance is free. The language is English, but with translations and segments in Dutch.

The Network of Archives for Design and Digital Culture (NADD) takes Amsterdam’s pioneering De Digitale Stad (The Digital City) project, revisited in the exhibition Designing the Social, as a departure point for discussing the relevance of preserving digital culture. The evening will focus on questions surrounding the social dimensions of archiving in the field. Marleen Stikker (founder of Waag and De Digitale Stad) will tell something about the principles and ideals of De Digitale Stad, Tjarda de Haan (researcher and archivist) talks about excavating and unlocking De Digitale Stad, Kees Teszelszky (conservator Digital Collections) presents examples from the XS4ALL homepage collection of the National Library of The Netherlands, and Florian van Zandwijk will take the audience on a live guided tour through online platforms, old and new. The evening will be moderated by Katía Truijen.

This edition of Social Talks builds on the housing movement that has gained a new momentum. As a prelude to the Housing Futures weekend, in which conversations on spatial strategies for housing alternatives and non-normative ways of living will take place, the discussion during this evening will rethink how to document and preserve spatial, social and political strategies for current and future generations. What ways are there to document and preserve the tactics, practices and spaces related to alternative housing?

In the first event in the Social Talks series, we revisit the century-old concept of the ‘minimum dwelling’ in the light of today’s urgent housing shortage. Conditions and living patterns have radically shifted over the past 100 years, but could this historic formula be a solution to modern problems? With contributions by Golnar Abbasi and Arvand Pourabbasi (WORKNOT!), and Giovanna Borasi (director of CCA). The evening will be moderated by Tara Lewis.
