In the first week of October the national Week tegen Eenzaamheid (Week Against Loneliness) takes place. This week is centered around social activities with the aim to stimulate encounters. It’s a good opportunity to, on a local level, call attention to the theme of solitude. Initiators of the A-Lonely Show Ka-Tjun Hau and Nanine van Smoorenburg are seizing this week to adress loneliness though art, engaging in conversations and the spreading of (more) awareness around the feeling of disconnectedness. The pop-up exhibition consists of visual arts, photography, film and video art and can be visited on 3 & 4 October in concept club Sexyland, located at NDSM in Amsterdam North. Also available is the public event featuring a workshop on Saturday. Click here to sign up.
